Gold Frames

I had won a giveaway a while back for 4 cut it out frames. I could not decide what I wanted to do with them so they stayed  untouched for almost a year. Until recently when I started to clean out my stash and decided that it was time to give my little frames a little life. I went ahead and went to work. I knew I wanted them to hold something special or better yet special people who we miss and who I love so dearly. Recently my family has lost a father and a grandfather called pop pop. He was the only grandfather my son had. My father is not a man who is part of our lives because he decided that when I was a child he did not want to be part of our lives. However, I was so happy that my father-in-law was going to be part of my son life. He was a good father to my husband and he stood for everything my father never did. My heart is sad due to the lost and the memories my son wont experience but I will have him present in my home. In his memory this is what I did.

After the paint was dried I picked the pictures which reminded me most of all of Steve. Fishing!! He loved his fishing and he always wanted to take all the boys fishing. He even made a large pond in which he captured and released fish into it. Its a beautiful spot.  He never got the opportunity to do it with his grandson but my hubby did take our son.  I chose those pictures and one of my father in-law from a old fishing trip he had gone. Now I have three generation fishing. If I do say so myself they are pretty good at it.

Of course I do have my little princess who will also learn to fish as well and I hope to add her picture as well in a couple of years.

I also did a love sign which I used a wood pledge which I placed a stencil on top and spray painted in black. I will be showing the tutorial on that tomorrow!

I got the arrow from target which was an ugly yellow which was not going to do. I decided to spray painted it gold.
