Picture Pot

I made this to submit to the Gueststar Stamper Contest at Papertrey Ink this month. I was lucky enough to receive an Honorable Mention for it! How cool is that? I was so excited! I have a few "picture holders" at home, so I thought it would be neat to make one myself, but make it like a bouquet of flowers you'd send to someone. As Nichole stated, it would be perfect for someone in the hospital. . .they wouldn't have to water it, but could see the flowers with familiar faces everytime they looked at it. You could change the "greeting card" to match the occasion. I made this particular one just to showcase some favorite pictures of friends or family and used the sentiment "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you." This would be perfect with a "We're Thinking of You" sentiment too, packed full of photos of family and friends. I'll definitely be making more of these! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Green Thumb, Beautiful Blooms (Papertrey Ink); Ink- Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Lavender Moon, Burnt Umber; Accessories- floral wire, Excelsior, Swiss Dots ribbon (Papertrey Ink).

Congrats on the Hon. Mention Charmaine! I really love this. I'm usually not a fan of paper crafted home decor. It's just not my personal style. But this is rockin'. It would make an awesome shower centerpiece too. Can you tell most of my friends are pregnant, lol.
