Good morning all - hope you had a fabulous weekend! Mine was busy. I got to crop on Saturday night with some wonderful gals, which was totally fun, but on Sunday I was really tired and not feeling like doing much of anything! So, I cleaned up my stamp room, putting back everything I had packed for the crop and reorganizing some things. I keep my stamp room pretty organized, but I had been madly stamping so there were paper scraps and stamp sets everywhere - LOL! But now, it is back to normal, which makes me feel better. I hope to create something in there this afternoon! Today I have another altered frame I want to share with you. I used my Garden Whimsy stamp set on this one with my Western Sky Designer Series Paper - yummy!!! I love the soft looks of this dp so I played that up on this frame. The flower in the lower corner is made using my Circle Scallop Punch, and my 1 3/8, 1 1/4, 1, 3/4, and 1/2 inch Circle Punch. I then added a build-a-brad to the top which has a small flower from the dp punched out in the middle. The white flowers are from the Pretties Kit and I stamped on them in Sage Shadow classic ink using my Garden Whimsy flower stamps. The big flower has a half pearl in the center, while I used rhinestone and vintage brads for the smaller flowers. The inside of the frame is a piece of Sage Shadow card stock which I stamped the big butterfly on. I then stamped it again on Whisper White card stock in Sage Shadow classic ink, cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals. I added some stickles for a little bling. The sentiment is also from the Garden Whimsy set as well as the small ladybugs. I did add some highlights with my white gel pen. I am pretty happy with the way this turned out - I made it for a friend, and I hope she likes it! Well, off to run some errands and weigh in at WW - wish me luck!!
