Wedding Shadowbox w/Your Memories Here

Whew! I am plum tuckered out after a long weekend...after both a graduation party & wedding, plus a movie date with my mommy in law before she headed to New York for work, I am posting this late so please forgive me! A busy weekend, but full of fun! So, I am back again this week with another frame for Your Memories Here...except this one is a shadow box & was quite the undertaking for me. However, I love how it turned out & I hope the bride & groom from Saturday night's wedding love it as well, because that's to whom it was given!!

Cardstock & Script Paper - The Paper Studio
Shadow Box Frame - Michael's (actually a t-shirt frame & LO's fit perfectly!)
Black & Gray Flowers - Recollections
White Silk Flowers - Michael's
Leaves - Wilton
Stickles - Ranger
Distress Ink - Tim Holtz (walnut stain)
Adhesive Rhinestone Swirls - Joleene's
Adhesive Die Cut Scallop Border - Echo Park (for the record kit)
Adhesive - Glue Glider Pro, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue, Scotch Double Sided Tape
Vintage Metal Button - Stash

I absolutely adore Prima products & they were just perfect for this frame! I loved the gorgeous paper & the mini roses are so fabulous. You can get plenty of beautiful Prima products RIGHT HERE at the YMH Store so make sure to visit! The inspiration for this frame came from one I seen at Michael's. And if I can say so myself, I don't think theirs was as nice, plus they wanted $20 for it! I decided to create my own version & am so glad I did! And those cute little spiral green stems you see as accents? Those are simply the wire stems from the Prima roses! Yep, just cut them off, curl them around a pencil, stretch out a little bit, & adhere with some strong, fast drying glue. I really like the realistic look they give to the flowers, don't you? By the way, those cute rhinestone swirls, they are a new product from Joleene's I believe, well at least new to my Michael's, & are very dimensional & made out of resin, or something similar. Love that they were adhesive too. Very cool.

I had so much fun creating this frame for the YMH DT & for our friends...I can't wait to see what photo they add to the shadow box from their amazing & gorgeous wedding! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me again today & I hope you check out the YMH Store. There are always fab products at amazing prices up for grabs, with wonderful shipping too!
