You're Sweet.....

Good morning everyone..... yay it's nearly the weekend! Hope you have something nice planned!

I noticed that the new challenge over at Magnolia-licious Highlites, chosen by the lovely and very talented Janny, is to make a card or project with a frame and thought it would be fun! Oh boy, check out the DT creations if you have a minute..... they're all so fabulous, what talented ladies!!

Now I've seen this idea for framing an image out there in blogland a few times, but can't remember where..... so if you're the person who inspired me then THANK YOU! I simply cut out a circle with a thick border and wrapped my lace around, then stuck it over this sweet Magnolia image..... what a cutie!

I nearly forgot to mention that there is also a recipe with this challenge..... to use at least one of each of these - bling/pearls, trim/ribbon, Magnolia image and flowers!....... CHECK!
The papers I've used are Papermania Blueberry Hill and I added these yummy Sizzix leaves as I love them so much, plus some gorgeous Prima Hydrangeas which I scrunched up a bit for shabbiness, lol! Added a few pearls, a Martha Stewart punched border and a Studio G sentiment and...... finished! I hope you like it! I've had so much fun with my last few creations so I won't be surprised if the old mojo does a crash and burn on me sometime soon!!! You can't stay on a roll forever right?!

Here are the other challenges I'm entering with this one:

Stamptacular Sunday - You've Been Framed

Flutterby Wednesday's - Open Challenge

Totally Papercrafts - Pearls and Lace

Stampin' For The Weekend - Springtime

I'm so grateful you took the time to come over today and check out my work..... thank you sooooooo much for your time ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
