Photo Gallery + Tim

The days between Christmas and New Year David took the time off work, which gave us the opportunity to do some decorating around the house. One of the things that I have wanted to have is a wall full of pictures. This recent image on Potterybarn's website was my inspiration...

I found some nice picture frames here and here. We first put up the ones from the White Company and then I ordered the smaller ones from John Lewis to add, as I felt it was too plain with just the large frames. To cover the entire wall we were also one frame short, as I had just guesstimated how many frames we needed. The frame turned up yesterday and David hung the final pictures last night. Here's the finished look of the entire wall:

And here's a closer look:

The other day I mentioned I forgot a birthday, well I couldn't just let it pass, so I made a card for Tim last night albeit late:

Supplies: clear card - Sheetloads Shortcuts, cardstock - Bazzill, PPs - October Afternoon, paperfrill - Doodlebug Design, alpha foam stickers - American Crafts, buttons - various, star die - Ellison Design.

Better late than never I suppose.

Thank you for dropping by and have a great weekend.

Hi Lisette, for my blog heading I just ended up creating a blank one, that has an open space for the heading to come through, which I replaced with the .
So not the perfect solution, but will do for now.
Just ADORE that card of yours too!!!
