Rose Picture~Turned Shabby~Pink

Welcome to this beautiful Pink Saturday...I planned my post ahead of time because right now I am at my son and daughter-in-love's college graduation! Woo hoo!
I found this amazing picture of pink roses at Salvation Army and got it for 3-4 dollars. I decided I wanted to shabby it up a bit! So I covered the painting and taped it off and spray painted the frame white. I just love it and can't believe I found such a treasure. YOu
know every once in awhile you find something amazing and this was my wonderful find for this year!

I love it! I can't wait to find the right spot for it!

Playing along today with Pink Saturday and our wonderful hostess Beverly. Be sure to check out all the pink goodness at Beverly's blog! http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
