Pretty Little Things

Happy Monday everyone!

Anyone else dragging just a bit this morning after the big game last night?  Boy it was hard to get the girls up and going this morning.  On top of that poor K has a cold and so she was even harder to get moving.  Speaking of K, thank you to all my sweet friends who left her a comment on the layout she posted this weekend.  You made her VERY happy.  I truly love you all, you are the best!!!!

It is funny, I go back and forth style wise.  I love creating fairly clean layouts and cards and then I create items like this one that I did  for a recent issue of  Crafts N' Things magazine.  Oh how I love pretty little trinkets and embellishments.  This altered jewelry frame just makes me happy every time I use it.


I started with this frame from Hobby Lobby.

I painted the entire frame with Linen colored acrylic paint by Plaid and then covered it with two different pattern papers.  I then cut a piece of screen that I found at my local hardware store and used small U shaped nails to attach it to the back of the frame.  I then added some of my favorite goodies and attache a shear brown ribbon for hanging.  You can find a complete supply list in the February issue of Crafts N' Things.  

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!
