Framed.....

So, how are you all? Hope your week is going by in a hurry - I know ours sure is! Don't know where the days go....


I had a little frame from The Dollar Tree, and decided to use up some scraps. I simply tore lots of uneven scraps and Mod-Podged them on.


I printed this sentiment, a new release from The Doodle Pantry to roughly 3" x 4.5", sponged around the sentiment with Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress Ink, and punched a couple of birds with my Stampin'Up! Bird Punch. Voila!


Taking the photos at night never work out so well, but tomorrow's 'one of those days', and I know nothing will get done in my craft cave, so had to take it tonight! It looks a bit curvy, but it's straight as can be in real life!


I think I am going to enter this at Our Creative Corner - the challenge there is to "Frame It"!!!


Keep praying for those folks in Joplin, Missouri - their death count is well over 100 now, and still many missing. My heart just breaks for them all.


Have a great week, and I'll be by to see you as soon as I can!


Smiles and blessings,
Patti J.

Food for thought: Much like one drop of food coloring tints an entire bottle of water, a tiny bit of kindness colors a whole friendship.

Hope you are okay with all that weather we had yesterday! Heard and saw pictures of the Joplin and Sedalia tornado destruction yesterday on the news. We had a tornado on either side of us, but I thank God for his protection!
Looks like you got some frustrations out on that paper! *smile*

What a fun way to do up a frame, Patti -- very clever, and oh so pretty! So many terrific patterns and those birds are so sweet. I used to decoupage a lot -- might need to dig out the modge podge and "borrow" this fun idea!
