My first altered FRAME!

This is my first ever altered item. I found an Artisan Market so I wanted to have some great items for sale. I had these frames sitting around that I wanted to embellish and this was a great opportunity to dive right in.

Normally I don't really enjoy making 3D items, but this was actually quite fun. I have 2 more that I want to embellish as well and I'll show you later this week if I get around to it.

I used Cottage Wall designer series paper. I used hodgepodge hardware, gingham ribbon and some die cuts - floral fusion, beautiful wings and little leaves. The sentiment is from a baby set - Bundle of Joy. There are 4 butterflies on here, see if you can find them all.

I actually almost hope this frame doesn't sell and I can keep it to put my daughter's picture in!
Thanks for looking.

(Yeah, my computer is back!!!)

This DP is SO yummy! You've done a great job with it on this frame! Lovely spray at the bottom too.

Your frames are wonderful Trish- I've enjoyed seeing all three of them!! I'm sure they will sell, but you can always make yourself another one!
