Bottle Cap Picture Frame

This is the picture frame I made for my mom's birthday. I think she is going to LOVE it!!! I also made her some pineapple zucchini bread...YUM! :) She gets both tomorrow and the family is taking her out to eat, to a winery and to an old candy/soda fountain shop that was featured on the Food Network! Here is the link if you want to check it out. Should be a fun day!

I am entering this into one challenge: I know only ONE!! GASP!!!

Etched Glass

This is something I made for my mom awhile back but have never posted on my blog. I cut out the boat and wave design with my cricut onto vinyl then etched into the glass vase. Added some twine and rocks with the lucky bamboo plant! My mom doesn't have a green thumb so I had to give her something that is hard to kill! LOL!

The picture isn't the greatest but I don't have a very good setup to take pictures of glass so this was the best I could do for now.

Hope you like this unique project!
