Baby frame ...

Hello and good morning ... 
The 1st of September already!
I'm not too well today ... nothing serious just one of those colds that that makes you feel like you just want to curl up and snooze ... I enjoyed my day in Wales yesterday ... It rained all the way there but miraculously stopped once we arrived at our destination ... 
The countryside was lush with greenery and there are some spectacular sights to be seen on the mountains ... this is walking country and so many dogs were out accompanying their owners .... from the tiniest of pups to the biggest of Pyrenean mountain dogs ... I was in seventh heaven ... it took me ages to walk a small row of shops because I had to stop and stroke each one ... I stopped in at my brother's house on the way home as Ross had arrived for a 12 day stay and I came home exhausted!
I only picked up a couple of things ... these pretty doilies 


Just look how much they cost


For someone like me who is not good at crocheting ... I was delighted!
And how could I not get this ...


Guess you know who this is going to ... 

I have a little project to share ... I saw a beautiful frame in one of our famous stores here in the UK and sort of 'borrowed' the idea ... thought I could make it for much less than they were charging and hey you know me ... I love to try different things ...


The glass makes it a little difficult to photograph but you get the idea ...
The aqua post card was made by me using both photo shop and print shop because I wanted it to match my BG paper and the other one was from the Graphics Fairy  ... I also added the stamps from the Graphic Fairy ... the digital bear stamp is from Meljen Designs which I half 'painted' and then reprinted onto CS ... fussy cut and mounted on the original one printed on the post cards ...
I added some embellishments and the little pegs so that photos can be clipped on ...


I have to say that I am pleased with how this turned out and will be making more of these ... I did buy the frames from the store I saw these in so I don't feel too bad about pinching their idea ...
Now I have some catching up to do visiting you all ... 

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by 

Till soon

~ Ros ~



EDIT >>> Why did I think it was September already ??? ... Told you I wasn't feeling well ... Just ignore me ...
