Family Ornament

Hello!  It's a cold, wet Saturday afternoon here...a perfect day to be in the recliner with an afghan on my lap and blogging about crafts!  

I wanted to share an ornament I made with an early picture of my parents.  
Snowflake cut with Christmas solutions cartridge from clear plastic, both sides sprayed with adhesive and covered in royal blue glitter.  I have two pictures back to back on each side of the snowflake and it's all hung with clear beading line.  The pretty glitter ribbon came from Wal-Mart.  I added some white glitter and crystal snow.  The glitter quickly attached to the picture, so it really sparkles!

That's all I have for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

I'm entering this project here:

ABC Challenges-B for blue, bows and bling
Fantabulous Cricut - anything but a card, holiday edition
