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:
