AUG 3, 1996 - AUG 3 2007 11 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

Yesterday was my DH and my 11th wedding anniversary. We did not do much to celebrate yesterday. My DH had worked till 4am the previous morning and he was dead tired. He did ask me to see if I could get a babysitter for the kids, but she was not available and also my little Matthew got sick in the afternoon. So, we just had a relaxing evening at home.
As a gift for "us", I made this picture frame with one of our wedding pictures.

I was not sure what to give John as a present. I had bought the heart charm on Sunday when we were in Victoria. It says "God blessed me with you". But I was not sure what he would do with the heart. All of a sudden I got inspired and decided to add it to a picture frame - Micheals $1.5. I used the retired RECOLLECTIONS SU DP. First I sponged some Antiquing medium on the frame. I used ModgePodge to adhere the paper. I sponged onto the frame over the paper too. I tied the charm with ribbon and added some more ribbon and gold cord for accent. The little tags in the bottom read LIFE LOVE & FOREVER. I had received these as a present from my Secret Sister on SCS. Just perfect. I really like how it turned out and John liked it too! It is hanging on our wall already!
