Ta daa......

 Ok...I confess... once I started with this frame... I just couldn't STOP!!... anyway... I think it's done... may add some small extra details... but in the meantime here it is.... 

I decided that I couldn't let this work of art go to "waste" and copied some pics I had at home to attach to the canvas... and yes that is my dear hubby & I back in the day.....

These are pics of me taken 0n 21 May 1966 (yes... my daddy is really good with dates on his pics... a lesson I am sure we can all learn from)... and....gee whizz... just realised.. have to add the date to the canvas... see  already I need to add another detail...LOL...

this is the center canvass... I copied 2 pics of me as a baby.... and added some frames - these are old slide frames covered with gold paper and stamped with my ever favourite word background stamp. ..told you it works on almost everything... for me that is... ;p)
 A close up on the rub on and butterfly I made with grunge paper... cut with my wizard and painted with some pearly paints... filled in with glossy accents and overstamped with gold stazon ink when dry....
the swirl is just covered with spritz and diamond stickles... a must have for any craft box!

close up of the frame. the background flowers were something called design adhesives covered with silver foil ( these can be flocked, glittered, foiled and even embossed... ) and inked with dye inks to match the paper

this is the other frame on the center canvas me at 8 months old
19 May 1966 (tx DAD) 

rub on's:  clock, swirl and words. I also stamped the harlequin background stamp onthe right.... the background  page looked to neat and clean for all the detail on the canvas

and finally the completed project....
