Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle Stewart's blog My Creations with Michelle. 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.

Love your frame Chantal! Gorgeous!

Your frame is STUNNING! I love the clusters and the fabulous diecuts, but it doesn't take away from the chicken wire or the frame itself, which has its own charm. Nice job!

Janet McCormick said...

So cute!! I love the clustering in the corner. It really brings more focus on the photo!
