Altered Photo Frame

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April New Release Celebration!  I"m so excited to be the guest designer this month for Sweet N Sassy and I had so much fun playing with 2 of the new release sets!!  Today I"m sharing an altered acrylic frame using "Bee Happy Rhubarb".  The images from the set that I used are Rhubarb, the sentiment and the little bee's.  The flowers, sun and border were hand drawn.  And the little cutie in the photo is my son 22 years ago.  Boy how time flies.  If I could just kiss those little chubby cheeks one more time ....  I know there will many more inspirational projects during the hop, so take a minute to hop around and then join in the party over at SCS.

Here's the full list of Design Divas (and our special April Guest) sharing their creativity with you today.  Just click on the name to go to their blogs:

Altered Acrylic Photo Frame

Good Morning and welcome to FireCracker Designs by Pamela's Monthly Blog Hop!

This months theme is "Greetings and Salutations".  All 9 of us will be sharing projects created with this theme in mind. And the best part for you is Pamela will be giving away some awesome blog candy.  But to qualify for the drawing you have to post comments.  She will randomly pick one of our blogs and then randomly pick from all the comments posted on that blog.   So you will want to read ALL the blog hop details below and leave comments on each of the blogs to qualify for the drawing.  Make sure you leave your email address in your comment!

Altered Acrylic Frame
I found this old photo of my Great Grandmother and could not resist creating this altered frame using this set. I couldn't think of a better way for her to "greet me" than by displaying her photo for our family to see.

I really love altering acrylic frames.

#1 - They are inexpensive.  I got this one at Walmart for $1.  So you can spend your $$$ on the perfect embellishements (I highly recommend rubber stamps, hehe).
#2 - I get to decide where and how big the photo window, opening will be.  I like having all the design control!

#3 - They make great gifts because you can add all the goodies/decor to the outside of the frame and the recipient can add the photo easily later by sliding the photo in the back as shown above.

Have I convinced you to create one yet??  Are you seeing a great, unique idea for gift giving this year??
