WEDNESDAY, May 11: Big Boy Toys


Hiya fellow stampers!! Sorry I haven't been on here much, I had a set back with my shoulder by over doing it!!! I know, and now I'm paying for it. I'll be glad when I can get this taken care of!!
My project here is a desk calender I made using a acrylic photo frame I got at the dollar store. I have seen these done before but couldn't remember where. So I don't have a link for info on it. Sorry.
It's a 4x6 frame, I downloaded the calender off the web. My DH drilled the little holes for me and it is held on with brads. My DH loves old classic cars of any kind and I'm giving him this for his desk. A Father's Day's gift. LOL. The image was colored with copic's.

Be sure to check out the rest of our very talented team for more wonderful ideas on using this great set!
