Good afternoon all.

Today it's my turn to inspire you over on the ARTplorations blog with a tutorial. Here is my project...click on the link to see how I made it.

I've recycled a photo frame....one of a string of three, the other two containing photos of the boys are still to be done.

  1. This is gorgeous Carol, fabulous colours, just popping over to check out your tutorial.

  2. Just returned from looking at your tutorial, a few tips in there for me to try at a late date. Lovely texture and colours and the recycled frame is perfect there in the centre.

You must have searched forever to get all the tiny embellies that encircle this adorable picture, and I really like the card base too. As soon as I can catch up commenting, I'll be checking out your tutorial. This card framed this little sweetie in such a beautiful way. I think MoJo has sneaked back! Glad you got Mt.
