If you came from Kathy Skipper of It's a Girl Thing! then you are in the right place!

From this Idea book's i would have to say my favorite paper pack is the Jubilee, have you seen it? I love it so much that i have been slowly decorating my studio with the paper pack and coordinating fabrics, colors, embellishments and stamp sets. I can't wait to share more of the fun projects i have been making and i wanted to start with this cute frame that will soon be hung on my door. Im working on a fun open/closed sign that hangs just below this frame. 

Please excuse the bad lighting, i took the pictures at night with out my ott lights, I might add some fun pictures to the frame on the right, maybe of the studio or logo? I just love these colors and they certainly scream summer. 

I used many cuts from the Artbooking catridge and most was made with the real dial size, except for the pennant frame in the middle. The bows were cut from Artist as well at the very back chocolate doily, is that what they are called? i don't know but they sure fit in well. Most of the main features on this frame is white but i brought in some punches of color to keep your eye moving.
