Thank you and a LO

This one deserves it's own thread and a special thank you to all of you...cause I know without this board I would have never made something that makes me smile so much. Smile I have spent probably close to 5 hours in total on this LO, just trying to get everything just so. I did lift it from a magazine, but changed things a slight bit. I just know in my heart that if I hadn't found this board I would never have learned all the things I now know, or every even thought to give someone a LO as a gift. This LO will be part of my niece's birthday present and I KNOW she will love it. I have not framed it yet, but need to as I am scared to death someone will ruin it. Every time I walk past it I smile cause I think it's soooo good. It's my best work IMO, but you all might think it's pretty plain. But you guys can understand the feeling of really loving what you've done right??? LOL Thanks for looking and thanks again for being here to inspire, push, and teach me how to be more creative. Smile Love you all!

Carrie, I think that is awesome!!!! And I agree, one of my favorites of yours! What a special gift - she is definitely going to love it! I have to ask...was the LO you lifted one that was called Prom and it had a picture of four girls? It looks so familiar to a LO I lifted one time but you did a much better job capturing the overall feel of the LO if it's the one I'm thinking of. Anyway, you did a GREAT job!! Biggrin

Carrie - it is beautiful! She will love it! Love how you placed the flowers and the title on the ribbon or is that folded paper? It looks great all around. Definately, frame it!
