Thursday Sparks Challenge Frames

Happy Thursday!

This has already been a LOOOOONG week for me.  I am about to collapse. LOL!! Last night was Open House and I was at school from 6:30 a.m. till 8:30 p.m.  Tonight I have my tennis drill practice so I can't wait till Friday! LOL!!

It has been a long time since I have had some free time to enter challenges.  I don't know about you but I LOVE challenges because they really get my mojo flowing and they really jumpstart my creativity!  So I was able to play along with the Paper Smooches Sparks weekly challenge.  It is a photo inspiration.  Here is a look.
To see all the rules please go HERE!

I just loved this inspiration. I just recently bought some photo frames in the Silhouette store so I thought they would be perfect for the challenge.

Here is what I came up with.


For my card first I splattered some mist on.  I then cut out some frames using the Fancy Pants Wonderful Day collection.  I then randomly placed them on the card and then broke out 2 different sets of Paper Smooches stamps.  I stamped and colored my little lady bug with my spectrum noir markers.  I love how this turned out and now I am motivated to use these frames on a scrapbook layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back on Monday with a week of all new projects.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
