Its me again after a hectic weekend..this week turned out to be a little ‘worky’ for me,well to let you know my family had our mom’s funeral ritual done on 3rd of this month(DEC)and i hope she is in Peace now..
Christmas was one of my Mom’s favorite festival..though being an Hindu(religion),most of our religion people find it unusual to celebrate Christmas,but my Mom never cared about all that…she just loved…loved and loved Christmas!
she would get up really early on the eve,bake tons of cakes and cookies,decorate our house with the lights and also decorate the Christmas tree for us(the kids).
But now its been a Year that she passed away,leaving her precious memories in our heart’s forever..
so today I wanna share with you this creation of mine that i made especially in memory of my mom..and it is also for a challenge at http://quirkycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/

Lets quickly move on to the tutorial:
I have taken 4 maroon card stock paper for the entire frame,cut all the card stocks it in about 9x5inches,take 2 card stock and cut out a square from the enter..(this is where the pictures fit in!) To give the sides a little more dimension,i have added these gemstones(in emerald green and maroon)then add the cellophane or transparent sheets at the back of the cut frames..
i have then added my stamps from the cutting cafe and colored and decorated it..in the corners of the frame i have put these handmade paper Poinsettia Flowers and leaves and also place the flower pollens.
I have then added my mums favorite star ornament at the upper left hand side corner…(mom..i hope you wont mind me putting it there instead of the tree!!)
so that’s it…my photo frame is ready.
i hope you guys like it!! i also want to share my mom’s pic here:
