ONE FOR ME!

Helloooo!  When I was sent this lovely multi-frame by the brilliant Di from ~TANDO~ I was going to use it for baby photographs.  But after seeing the other very gorgeous examples made up by the DT on the blog ~here~, I felt I needed to think again!  So I made it a hanging frame and all the embellies are relevant to my life...

The base has been coloured with watersoluble wax crayons...I do like the texture & shabby look it gives! Now I am sure that you all want to know what the 'bits' mean hahaha so here goes...

Flower....I love to have fresh flowers in my home, preferably pinks
shell....until recently I always lived near the sea & would love to again, just love the sound of it
key...I feel very lucky that we own our own home & have no mortgage
celtic button...am very proud to be a Cornish Celt
cameo...my Mum has a beautiful real cameo brooch made of coral...so this one is for her
chippie...well...I just love Tando chippie
fabric brad...chosen for the pattern - I adore ethnic fabrics, esp Indian with its fabulous colours
heart bead...this was given to me by my lovely pal TraceyR & reminds me of the lovely crafting friends I have made
fish charm...because I am a pisces through & through
elephant - not just because I love elephants but I have a huge respect for all animals
beads...I love beads but am so useless at making jewelery hahaha

So there you have it...a bit more about me!!!  Thank you for taking a looksee on this Valentines Day, HUGS XXX
