A last minute gift I made for my mother (who's birthday was on the 29th). The base is a clock from the dollarstore.
Here's my inspiration:

And here's what I came up with:

I packaged it together with a magnet that I bought and a card I made:


My dad took pictures of me in various red clothing and I edited it in photoshop to make the pictures black, white, and red. My mom absolutely loved it (which I'm very happy about ^^ )
Now we're just looking for a place to hang it  Cheesy

I am particularly impressed that this was a dad/daughter effort.  You are very lucky.  And what a nice idea - I'm sure she'll love it.

I can imagine that he would have much rather been sleeping than taking pictures XD But it was very nice of him to help me out with that ^^ Just imagine how horrible thing thing would look with 'myspace' pictures  Undecided

Glad you guys like it! And I guess I'm just 'passing on the inspiration'?  Smiley
