Grandma's Wall

Hi Everyone
Well today's LO I titled "Grandma's Wall" as that is what I was trying to make it look like; a grandma's brag wall of her grandson's.  The two cute boys are my brothers kids. It's hard to see on the picture, but I actually took an Old Olive marker and marked down wall paper lines, thought it was a cute little touch.  The DSP is Island Oasis 117173 $13.95 is from the current Holiday Mini which will retire the end of August, so don't miss out on this cute paper.  The Brads are the Antique Brads 117273 $7.50/20; I used them as the "nails" to hang the pictures and in the center of my Scallop Punch flower; I just accordioned two scallops together and place the brad in the center.  The Brights Designer Buttons 119747 $10.95/72 are around the flower with Linen thread, and the felt leaves are retired now.  Under the Rif Raf Bird Card which I spritzed with Log Cabin Smootch 119921 $6.25, is the cute bird from the Hostess Level 1 Set (FREE with $200 order/workshop) Punch Potpourri which matches perfectly with the Two Step Bird XL punch 117191 $23.95, I stamped him in Tempting Turquoise.  For the Frames, the bottom on is one I bought YEARS ago and I think its MME, but I only had one, so I made the other one with Naturals White C/S and stamper it with Woodgrain background stamp 117100 $21.95 with Soft Suede and Early Espresso; used the Soft Sued emarker to draw the lines, and distress with the Tea Stain ink for the Distressing Essentials Kit, then I just traced the whole in the center and cut out with my paper trimmer.  Lastly I stamped the 3 birds with Early Espresso from my fav set Notably Ornate 120561 $21.95 for clear. 
Phew, I think that is everything...oh the rope I used to hang the pictures is retired, and the tag is MME(I think)
Thanks for stopping by and please don't forget to leave a comment to let me know you were here!
