When I found this frame at my thrift store I knew it had Olde Curiosity Shoppe written all over it.  So I spent an evening with the hubby watching Firefly and making this cute little masterpiece.

I did a lot of measuring with my old-fashioned ruler and tracing parts of the frame to get the measurements for the paper.

I did a lot fussy cutting the images and butterflies.  I wanted the glasses to be center over the top.  I love the polka dots, I know I say that all the time but it is true.  So glad that each collection has them for me.  

I used one of the new Graphic 45 key holes(my prize)I just love them.  One of my handmade grunge flowers with a button from one of my FB scrappy friends.  Prima flower that I found in Portland on my last trip.  Fussy cut butterflies all over and a sign sticker from the sticker sheet.

I never toss any G45 paper no matter how small.  The strip across the bottom is just half an inch.  I glossy accented the key in her back to make it stand out.   The frame holds a 3x4.5 size photo.  

So don't forget to check your local thrift stores for fun and interesting frames.  It doesn't matter if they have a few scratches when you are covering them in your favorite paper.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Leave me a comment.  I'll be picking one random person for a prize to be announced at my next blog entry.  Thanks.  Idaho Amy


  1. Amy, I LOVE your frame and how you used all the different papers together. It's beautiful and unique! Is this something for your eBay store? If so, I am sure there will be some hot bidding for it! So beautiful!

  2. Awesome Debi that you posted a comment, I'm sure you'll have this win in the bag. But when they see what you get...they'll be jealous. LOL if nobody else comments I'll send you something in your box with the Graphic items and Product Performers and your other prize. Oh, and yes this is for my Ebay store. Will be doing a video and then will be posting it next week. Thanks for making me feel loved by you.
