Beautiful Photo

I am definitely not a scrapbooker, but who could resist working with this beauty?! I wanted to show you something that I had created during my time on the Dirty Dozen team. This is a frame that my FIL made out of molding he had kicking around then I got my hands on it and mucked with it. I used distress crackle paint and white paint and some distress ink to antique the frame to match my image.

My little neice is wearing one of the hats grandma has in her "tickle trunk" so I played off the pretty flowers in the hat to create the corner of flowers in my frame.

I stamped my "Beautiful" flourishes directly on my photo with Stazon ink, added a few more flourishes and sentiment and then muddied it up some more with the vintage photo distress ink.

Check back tomorrow for Taylor's cupcake challenge! I have something totally different than a cupcake.......
