Today we are celebrating my niece's 13th birthday!  I wanted to make something special for her, something she can hold onto for a while.  Came up with this:

 This is Honey from Saturated Canary.  This is what she looked like
before I stuck her in the frame.

 I got some great scrapbooking frames from Hobby Lobby.
They are 8x8, perfect size to showcase an image!

When I asked Katelyn what her fav colors are, she said she loves pink and green.  I just happened to have some really fun "diva" paper that I bought from Hobby Lobby, it was a 12x12 piece.  I colored her with my copics, and then mounted her in the center of the 8x8 paper.  I left no corner bare when it came time to embellish.  The top left corner has a few pieces of washi tape on it.  The rest of the embellies were flowers, brads, and  a pin that I had beaded up myself.  I put her name on the left with some alpha stickers from Doodlebug.  I am really happy with how she turned out!  I will probably start framing a lot more often! 

Happy birthday Katelyn!!

  10. Oh Rachel, this is outstanding! Of course I love, love the SC girl, but I think you hit the nail on the head with this. I love your papers, your flowers your frame and above all else your coloring of her! I guess you might say that I LOVE THIS! My niece is going to be 13 come September and she loves to share my Copics with me when they are in town. I am so going to make her something like this. I think it is just perfect for a new teenager. You must be the best Aunt ever! Hope you are well my friend. Hope the rain has let up on you as well. We are getting on and off rain and thunderstorms only to have it be in the 90s shortly thereafter. Oh well, I guess you would say it was summer.
    Hugs Lisa
