You are my #1!

Hi there!

I am back doing 'Anything but a Card' projects for the month of November with PaperWorksCo!    I have some quick, easy and economical projects to show you which I hope will get your creative juices going.

Today I have this sweet photo holder.  I picked up this oversized  clothes pin from the $1.50 bin at Michaels.  I used a drinks mat (picked up from any bar/restaurant) which I covered in this beautiful Echo Park boy paper.  I sanded the edges to give it a nice finished look.  I added a strip of co-ordinating paper down the front of the clothes pin and tied a knot with some cotton twill (recycled from some dishcloth packaging)!

The photo is of my middle son, Joel.  I stamped the 'You are my #1' image from the Zac & Zoe Sports Collection, cut it out and coloured it with my copic sketch markers using B91,93,95,96,99.

This was a very quick and economical gift idea ... perfect for those work desks or small spaces!  I hope you get inspired by my ABAC project today and that it makes you realize you can make super handmade gifts for very little financial outlay.  And what grandparent, uncle or aunt wouldn't love to receive a little gift like this with a picture of their favourite family member!

Thanks for stopping in again today - it's always great to see you on my blog.  I must apologize for my lack of commenting lately ... I'm still trying to find my groove with my new work routine but at least hubby is home now so I'm no longer doing the whole 'single parenting' thing anymore ... she says with a big 'phew'!!

I hope you all enjoying a wonderful Sunday evening and a fabulous start to a new week!

Danielle, this is super adorable.I love this idea. I love the plaid you placed on the clothespin and then the paper to match surrounding the portrait of your sweet son. Great idea!
