Universal Frame Souvenirs

Hi friends,
Last weekend, we took Jordan & 4 of his friends to Universal Studios for his birthday. We had a great time on all the rides, eating yummy treats, and laughing at how I come out in every picture they take while on the rides. You know the ones they sadistically take of you as you're falling to what feels like your death!!! Yeah, I always look like a mutant with 4 chins. Uggggh :(
Well, these are the thank you/souvenirs we made for the kids who went:
I took a picture of each child with Jordan at the park & added it to the frame. I bought some $1 wood frames from Mike's, painted them, then added a couple of coats of Tripple Thick Gloss Glaze. I die cut a film strip (Sizzix), punched out some stars, and added the sentiment. Easy peasy :) I created the sentiment on Word.
Here's a closer peek at the embellishments:

Thanks for peeking today! I've got a super busy week coming up, soooooo
Gotta Go!
