Oh boy!  This has been a fun project, although a bit challenging trying to decide how to decorate it without over-decorating.  I love, love, love the crushed flower!  I used Stampin' Up! designer paper to create the flower, and the larger die-cut and embossed aluminum flower is one that I had leftover from yesterday's candle holder project.  For the butterflies and photo corners, I used thinner aluminum than the roof flashing.  The best part of this project is the chalkboard vinyl.  It's so darn easy to use, and a person could quickly create a lot of clever gift items with it.  A fellow demonstrator said she was using the vinyl on coffee cups so she could write a special message or reminder to her family members.  Neat idea, huh?  BTW, there's a "ledge" below the vinyl (above the gold embossed oval layer) where a stick of chalk can lay, but I forgot to put the chalk back before taking the picture.  Better do that now.
