Betsy and Birdie Get Framed!! :0

Hey There!

How are you all doing out there? I want to say a warm WELCOME to all my new followers! I hope you enjoy your visits here! Thank you for following my little spot on the Web!

Today I'm sharing something made by a good friend of mine (who wishes to remain nameless). She took one of my latest images and made something fun with it. No, not a card... a frame! She doesn't have a blog, but has graciously agreed to allow me to share her project here with you!

She started with a plain wooden frame that she got at Michael's, and then took my image of Betsy and Birdie and carbon copied it onto the right side of the frame. Then she painted everything, and this is her completed project with a photo of her beautiful granddaughter. :)
I just love the Prim look to this whole project! Isn't it just adorable? I love this style of work! 

*Please let her know what a talented artist she is. I think she needs some encouragement!

Have you considered thinking out of the box with some of the free images out there and doing something just a little different? If you do this with one of my images, I'd really love to see it and share it on the original Digi post with a link back to your blog!

I have a Free Digi waiting to be posted in the next few days! Check back soon!
