Precious Photos

I had to share with you these sweet photos a client asked me to use in one of my latest projects.  When visiting my house, she had seen a cloche I had made with an old photo from when I was a child.  She wanted to give her mom a Mother's Day gift with a photo of her children,  and she also wanted one for herself.  She  asked if I could create something special. 
 Here's the cloche I made for her....



These photos absolutely precious. . 
This photo is of the two sisters with their children and grandmother.

 

I mounted the photo on some chip board which I covered with decorative paper.  I added some buttons,
a flower and my favorite beaded garland.


I then printed out a saying
 which I thought was perfect for the photo!


Here's the cloche that she had made for her mom.....



Doesn't the white plate go perfectly with the colors of the photo?




I embellished it just like the other cloche.


I have used this saying for many of my projects.....


I actually made the cloche.  It was a vase. 
I turned it upside down and glued on a candle stick for the stem. 
 I added a decorative ribbon, button and heart pendant.
It was an easy project that made a wonderful gift.


Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a chance to get out and enjoy the spring weather. 
 I'll be linking up to the following creative sites....

The cloches themselves are beautiful, Sherry, and you did a wonderful job for your client in putting this all together. Both her and her Mom's look great and I'll bet her Mom will treasure this gift always.
