Mother & Son







































Such a busy week getting ready for the wedding.  I wanted to do something special for my friend, Debbie who's son is the groom.  I found a vintage makeup compact on Etsy. I carefully took out what remained of the pressed powder.  I borrowed a favorite picture of my friend with her son as a toddler. I printed the picture on to printable fabric and pulled some of my favorite Lecien fabric for the frame. A little batting, some card stock and glue and it was all set.  A pretty hankie to dry a happy tear and a little mirror to check her makeup~all set.  A special gift for a very special friend!

Hugs,

  13. I just love this clever gift idea. Will have to put this in my bag of tricks!! I will be on the look-out for more vintage compacts. I have two right now and just purchased some photo fabric or whatever you call it...LOL!! It will be a good test project for my new photo copying "stuff" that I have never used before!!
