Do not adjust your set...




I did make this! It's colourful AND cute, and it is my entry for the UK Stampers' Sunday challenge for last week. The theme was monograms, and I thought I would save myself some time by using a wooden letter that my friend Vicky gave me a while back. I forgot, of course, that I can't do simple, so after I decorated the letter I decided it would make a great picture frame. It all works, and I can change the photo when I want.

Colour: Distress Inks, Ranger white pen, Stickles, Brilliance, Twinkling H2Os
Stamps: Paperartsy, Stampendous
Other: Acetate, ribbon, curtain ring, lots of card, staple gun.

The photo was taken late in the afternoon at Dan's first birthday party, and is quite funny to look at now. I was shattered, Paul had been scratched across the nose (by Dan), and Dan had not slept all day. It's still a good reminder of a great day, although this year I may have any photos done at the beginning of the party!

Lovely colours and such a good idea putting a photo in. I can't do simple either - I think half the fun's in the detail!
