You've Been Framed!!

This is another challenge from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog...You've Been Framed is the name of this one.  You are supposed to make a project with some sort of frame on it.  I had this idea just pop into my head today, and this is what happened when I brought it to paper.


The photo is of my husband and our grandson Cooper.  It is one of my all-time favorite pictures.  They didn't pose for it, as a matter-of-fact he didn't know that I took it until we downloaded it to the computer. It was August, 2009, and we were riding on the zoo train.  Everything except the bling, buttons, and the "M is for memories" tag was from my kit, or made for my March kit.  The tag did, however, come from the pack of papers that I picked the pattern papers from.  I layered the papers and used the MS corner punch for the corners only.  The flowers and butterfly I crocheted myself.  I cut the flourishes out of brown cardstock and then sprayed them with green/gold Glimmer mist.  All of the edges I inked with Tim Holtz distress ink.

Thanks for looking!
