Foiled by Fingerprints!!!

This was fun because:
1. I actually felt the idea 'hit me' (in a very pleasant way) - I saw a frame idea in a magazine recently and was opening up a packet of IKEA frames I found in my storeroom intending to try out the idea. Turns out the IKEA frames came in a pack of 3! I totally forgot about the magazine idea, stacked 3 frames together and ta dah!2. I love transparent things - and 3 layers of transparent goodness is 3 times as good! (except I don't seem to know how to photograph this to show you the depth of the layers - each of the 3 butterflies is on a different layer)

3. I got to use lots of lovely Purple Onion stamps (including the lovely new teensy weensy butterflies): Ornamentals Set, Butterfly Set, 2009 Vintage Calendar Stamp, Blossoms, Small Number Block Set
4. I have a corny title (but 'deep' also ok?) - the title is "Thankful for Life" - so it can be "I am thankful for everything I have in my life" or "I will be thankful forever" - not bad right? (*smug smile*)
5. It matches my home decor!!!
Now if only I had remembered to wipe all the finger prints, wood dust and cat hair (!!!) off the 'glass' before I sealed those darned frames together!!! (WITH SUPERGLUE!!!! Aaaaargh!)

As for the fingerprints, just make sure you don't commit any crimes, okay?
