What do you get a Mum who has everything?

A A4 certificate frame only 99p from the cheap shop lol,
then add a treasured photo with a printed frame and then pale pink card around it,
after doing that I added two gorgeous mini bouquets and pastel coloured gems around it,
as this would fit in with the colours of the room that I knew my mum would stand the frame.
It was her birthday sunday just gone and she cried when I gave her this, as the original photo was no bigger than 2" x 3" max, and of course very very old,

I am entering this altered picture frame into the challenges over at
Allsorts - Rags to Riches
and
Project Tuesday - Altered Picture Frame
Thanks for stopping by,
your comments mean the world to me,
Hugs
Angie
