Paris Themed Frames!

Hi Everyone!
I found these cute little black frames at Goodwill for 59 cents each! They were an ugly orange color so I painted them with black arylic paint. I used rub n buff to get the gold highlights. I love that stuff!

The paper is from  Prima's Printery collection. I purchased the Eiffel Tower from Mini Album Scraps.
I dipped the Eiffel tower piece in clear embossing ink and then black embossing powder and heat set it
with my heat gun, I loved the glossy look it has! The mulberrry roses are from IamRoses, they were white and I sprayed them with my New Lindy's Stamp gang starburst sprays in wake you up before you go gold,fuzzy navel peach and then I painted some with Folkart Paint in Metallic Gold.
I adhered them on a black shabby chic flower from Sa Crafters. The paris clock embellishment is from starlit studios.

The other frame has the same paper line in it. All of the roses are from IamRoses.I purchased the adorable dressform from Mini Album Scraps as well. I just used various trims I had in my stash to make her dress.
I loved making these. They are gonna go perfect in my scrapbook room!
Have a Beautiful Day!

Hi Bloggers!
I just wanted to let ya'll know that I am not missing in action! I hurt my back last Sunday and I have been in bed all week! Uggh! I have not been able to create at all this week! I finally went to the dr on Thursday..
Diagnosis: Pulled sciatic nerve! Now those of you out there know that have back problems know how painful it can be! I could not sit up straight for more than a few minutes. Only relief was to lay on my right side! My laptop kept me sane!
My wonderful hubby waited on me hand and foot and so did my sweet Rachel. My fabulous odd came to visit me to see if I needed anything! My wonderful Mom checked on me constantly! I am so fortunate that
