25 years ago...

Next week, my girlfriend celebrates her 25th wedding anniversary.  I stood up in her wedding and I can't believe it has been 25 years.  Back then I created a shadow box using her wedding invite.  A miniature wedding photo is in the frame on the table.



So for their 25th anniversary, I created a frame using the CTMH bracket frame.  I CAS'd the design from the CTMH catalog (Spring/Summer 2013) but used green and peach as accent colors, the colors of my friend's wedding.  I'm quite please on how it turned out.  A great big thank you to my CTMH consultant, Morgan Vogt, for her help and design advise!



Supplies used:

CTMH Bracket Frame
CTMH Cricut Cartridges (Artiste, Art Philosophy, Artbooking)
CTMH For Always Paper Pack (retired)
CTMH Black & Grey Glitter Paper
CTMH Silver Shimmer Trim
CTMH D1506 Family Love Stamp Set
