A couple of weeks ago, one of my cards was chosen as top pick over at Challenge Up Your Life.  That honor comes along with the opportunity to be a Guest DT over at their challenge blog.  I never turn down that sort of fun!

The theme this time is Frame(s).  Now I have to say, I had several different ideas in my head and I just couldn't seem to commit to one.  Then I was out in the barn and saw the old shoes hanging, remembered the most recent pic of my little grand-girl with a stuffed horse, and decided on an entirely different project!

I designed this in Cricut Design Space.  I cut 4 ovals from cereal boxes and glued them together as the backing.  Then I cut my photo in an oval slightly smaller than the previous ovals.  My flowers were cut from the CTMH Artiste cartridge and stamped using background stamps to give them some texture.  I fussy cut a little heart out of burlap and tied a twine bow.  To make this stand, I cut a hinge type of arm for the back and adhered it with a glue gun.
