Good Morning Friends!
I've been wanting to make an altered photo frame for a good friend who's expecting her first child and FINALLY finished it last evening.
I've used Craft Secrets digital design papers for the base and the flowers. However, I alter the color of two of the ones I chose so I could match the baby's room decor. All product used will be listed at the end of my post. Be sure to pop over to Crafty Vintage Girl shoppe and check out the fabulous baby items available as well as all the other themed goodies they have.
I swear sometimes my brain just DOES NOT WORK!!
I was so excited that the challenge over at the Shabby Tea Room this week is BABY SHOWER PARTY ... I thought, GREAT! I can play the challenge and get this project completed for my friend all at the same time!
Well DUH ... they do have this fabulous photo inspiration and the only thing my creation has in common with it is the fact that it's for a baby and it will be party of my shower gift!
OH WELL I hope it still qualifies!
Here are some closeups... (click on any of these images to enlarge).
All the flowers were homemade using the same Crafty Secrets digital design papers I used to cover the frame.
Crafty Secrets a sheet of adorable baby stickers called 'Little Girls' and since the new Mom is a cat lover I think she'll enjoy these sweet little kitty sticker images. The pink rik-rak down the upper left side as well as the 'Little Girl' poem are also from this same sticker sheet.
The sweet image I've used in the center is from the Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps 'Baby Girl' medium stamp set. I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for the coloring. This panel can be removed and a picture of their new little daughter can be in it's place.
Here are a few additional challenges I'd like to enter into:
4 Crafty Chicks - Things with Wings
Delightful Challenge - Add a Flourish
DL.ART Thankful Thursday - Vintage
MilkCoffee Challenge - Girly
The Crafter's Cafe - Vintage or Shabby Chic

I hope you enjoyed my creation and found inspiration!
Take care and remember ... SPRING IS ON THE WAY!!
