CSS Release Day 3

It's Day 3 of Release Reveals at Clear & Simple Stamps. I have a special project for you today. We are showcasing Alphabets and Numbers today.

Many moons ago I had everyone in the family paint either their hand or foot for this very project. Actually, at the time, I did not know exactly what I was gonna do with them.

It hit me yesterday (yep, yesterday) that I had the perfect size frame and mats to bring this project to life. Here is how the process went....

 Deciding what went where....

Cutting out the kids prints since the paper I used wasn't wide enough. I couldn't go back 9 months to get my baby girl to re-stamp her little feet. I'd love to see the difference now in the size.

I used some new dies.... NUMBERS. I love the font and the size. They are just perfect. I couldn't decide whether to keep the piece inside the zero. But, ultimately, I removed it and ended up changing everything around to include the little banner flag with our names stamped on them. I used a new alphabet set, too. It's called ALPHA ENGRAVED. You are gonna love it! It offers TWO sizes in each letter. PLUS, numbers! Love that in an alphabet set.

I placed it on a wall for you. Isn't it cool? I about shed a tear when I finished. It's been a long time coming. My babies are 4 yrs. and 9 mos. old now. I can look at it from my kitchen and think of my babies, my family, my life and enjoy the memories and the moments to be.

 And some close ups....



What a great keepsake, huh? I'm so happy I finally completed this project.
