Christmas Ornaments

Good Morning!

When I saw this Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Photo Ornaments, I knew I just had to play along!
I also had the most perfect subject.....any guesses?  lol 
I am also entering these in the Challenge at Scrapy Land, Anything Goes.
Here we go.........

Peaceful Penny

Sweet, sweet, sweet, Penny

Lovely Penny
Penelope Joy
Sweet Baby Dreams Penny

Isn't She Lovely Penny
These are so addictive to make and whip up in not time at all.  After picking a few of my favorite photos I began to design them all. 
Matching colors and adding just the perfect accents.  They are FUN to make!

Each ornament has 3 layers of the frame cut in colored card stock and
once in a thick chipboard material, they are nice and sturdy.
Here are the products I used:
Papertrey Ink:
Happy For You, Polka Dot Parade #4 stamps
Shakers & Sprinkles, Fun Frames, Fabulous Frames dies
Jungle Buddies , Wonderful Words Joy stamps and dies
Penny Black; Heart Strings die
EK Success; Sentiment Label Punch
Inks; Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette
Rhinestones, Ribbons, Baker's Twine, Thick Twine, Pearl Strand,
Ruffle Ribbon, Lace, Enamel Brads, Heart Buttons
Thanks for popping in!
