Hi everyone! Well I only have one thing to show you today. It's for the next challenge on the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges. This one is Something Borrowed and Not So Blue. You are supposed to choose a color from one of the cancer care ribbons and borrow something like an idea or a stamp or color scheme from someone else; whatever you want.
I knew immediately what i wanted to do because I had seen this post on Lisa Somerville's blog a while back where she had a snowflake frame that she had altered. I loved the frame and had kept it bookmarked so that I could try to make my own frame similar to the one in her post. Here's the link to Lisa's blog entry - you have to scroll down a bit to see it. LISA's ALTERED FRAME
Here is my frame

Of course the color I chose is gold which is the color of children's cancer care ribbon. I used two coasters to make the base of the frame and spray painted it with some gold paint. then I punched out several different sizes and shapes of snowflakes and spray painted them as well. Then I decorated with pearls and glitter.
The picture is one I dug out of a photo album. It's Ashley when she was almost three years old telling Santa what she wanted for Christmas. (probably a My Little Pony) I scanned the photo and then aged it with the photo software to a sepia tone. After that all I had to do was put it all together and add an easel to the back!
I really love the way it turned out. I hope to get to more of the challenges today!
