Vintage Christmas Ornament

I found this tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers on how to make an Heirloom Photo Ornament.
Beate also has a video tutorial you can find here.

I think this is such a beautiful creation to make for Grandparents or just to keep for yourself. The tutorials use the new Heirloom dies from Nestabilities but again I don't have this set. I was very tempted to go and purchase it but I was very good and improvised by using Labels 13 for the actual ornament shape and Labels 3 for the window.
There are a few pics because it was quite difficult to photograph showing all the way around. Again I made the flower and forgot to take pics so i will make sure I remember next time so I can add a tutorial.
This is the other side showing another pic of the boys and  to hide the back of the flower at the top of my bow I added a snowflake making it pretty back and front. 
I just wanted to show this view so you can really see how it looks. Altogether there are 3 photos added to the ornament as there are 3 panels.
