du Jour!

July 8, 2009

I created this frame for one of my best friends birthdays. Although I was tempted to make it in my fav colors, I was able to control myself and complete it in the colors of her wedding.

When searching for the perfect wording to place on the frame I came across this sticker: “du Jour”. I knew the words waere obviously French, but I didn’t know what they meant so I called my husband and asked him to look it up for me and this is what he came up with: “made for a particular day”.

Although it doesn’t have any profound meaning this gift was indeed made for a particular day (Steph’s birthday) and it focuses on a very special day in her life (her wedding day). So I think it fits just fine, plus it looks really pretty, which is the real reason I ended up using it as the main focus. 

I hope you like it Mrs. Saavedra and HAPPY BIRTHDAY from your friends in Miami!

Materials: wooden frame (Michael’s); patterned paper (K&Company); floral embellishment (Prima Marketing Inc.); sticker letters (American Crafts); swirl stamp (Autumn Leaves); butterfly stamps (K&Company); brad (Making Memories); ink (Jo-Ann Craft Essentials); paint (Apple Barrel); ribbon (Basic Basic);  

My husband says that this is his favorite frame that I have made thus far, but I get the feeling that his judgements are biased (considering that he’s totally in love with me and all). So you be the judge…what do you think?
