KCC Monthly Hop: "Let's Frame It!" - Sunday

Brought to you by the Krazy Crafting Crew, this month's hop is on altering frames. We'll be bringing you ideas on how to alter frames, decorate frames or put decor in the frame instead of a standard picture.

If you have just stumbled upon the hop, Robin at Scrap and Chat will be your host today. Be sure to stop by Robin's blog to learn more about the blog candy that is offered. 

For my project today, I altered a Bracket Frame that is available for purchase from your Close To My Heart consultant.

I covered it in CTMH "Chantilly" paper, and made paper flowers using the CTMH/Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The buttons are Chantilly Complements. The vines and leaves are from a die by Cheery Lynn Designs. And the cute baby? She's my granddaughter, Charlotte, two years ago!  My, how time flies!  And yes, she is just as darling today as she was back then. Oh, those baby blues!! 

Click on through the hop for more ideas on personalizing your frames. Your next stop in the Hop is Sweet Janet, at Janet's Creative World.  I'll post the full line up below in case you get lost along the way.


Thank you for hopping through our Altered Frame Blog hop!
