Here is the project that I made for my Dh for his birthday this year. We are on a tight budget at the moment so I had to create rather than buy. I think he likes it! You know what men are like! I used a thrift store frame that I had in my stash and painted it with purlesant paints that my girls had!



Here is where the inspiration came from: http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2011/07/sweet-family-portrait.html
C&C welcome.

this is wonderfully cute!  I'll be getting hand prints of all my family members when they come to visit.  These would make fabulous family gifts!
