Mine is Bigger frame

LOL! Doesn't this picture frame just make you laugh?! See.. there's a story to go with this..
My father-in-law celebrated his 50th birthday recently (sept.) and for his present my husband took him to Alaska for a fishing trip just the 2 of them. Adam goes to Alaska all the time for work (usually 1-2 trips a month)... so he has Alaska air miles .. a LOT! (enough to take me to Hawaii for our anniversary this year... *hint hint* just in case you read this babe lol!!). So anyway he took his dad when he went on one of his trips and it ended up costing him around $500-$600 to take him. Well they had fun and that's whats important. Anyway on their fishing trip Adam's dad caught the larger fish and bought Adam a shirt as a joke that said "Mine is Bigger" lol.

I made the frame based off of the shirt and Adam edited 2 pics from their trip and got them printed for the frame.

The guy in the Orange shirt is Adam (he always wears orange it's his fav color) & the guy in the black shirt is his dad (he always wears black it's his fav color shirt lol)... if you knew them you'd think this was hilarious.. people always joke that Adam's dad's closet it just like Ernest's closet the same pair of jeans and black t-shirt over and over and over lol. I cut the guys from Paper Dolls Dress Up cart & the fish from Create A Critter.

I am entering this frame into the following challenges:
LESSology - #8 (the upcycled item are the fishes they are made from an envelope my husband got in the mail from some credit card company and tried to throw away lol... I don't think so!)

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
