Photo Frame
"Spring Stepping"


I used this Crissy Armstong stamp "Spring Stepping" to create this little photo frame. I love Crissy's work so much. You can see all her Whimsy Images here. They are always a joy to color! I used Copics to color my image and mounted it with a little dimensional adhesive to raise it up just a little bit. The papers are all Bo Bunny "A Gift of Love". The card stock is Stampin Up and Bazzil Basics. The tiny butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and the ribbon and charm are just out of my stash. The sweet photo is my little girl Ashley who is now 14 (as of last Thursday!). This is my favorite picture of her. She was all of 1 1/2 and oh how I miss those precious curls!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share this little project with you!
Please be sure to sign up for the blog candy at the last stop!
Now off you go to see what gorgeousness Erin has in store for you!
