I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE....OOH I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEA....LA LA


Hi, Happy Monday everyone, the sun is shining, longer daylight hours, total bliss.

Last week I bought some new stamps from Crafty Individuals, had been after these for ages and ages. I knew as soon as I got them what I wanted to create with them, which is unusual for me, but ooh so wanted to make this.

This Altered Picture Frame has been mainly made from recycled materials.


One delapitated picture frame, hessian off an old plant, corrugated packaging. Images stamped on an old tissue box, plus stamped and coloured a scrap of material for the Bunting (freebie stamp from a magazine). The shells, beads and charms were given to me by a neighbour who didn't want them (and of course who could refuse). So all in all not a bad recycling project...........lol

Hope you are all having a great day and thank you for visiting me. Off now to prepare the lunch as my dear hubby has come back from town laden with groceries and is of course starving hungry.......typical............lol Catch up with you all later, Hugs Annette x


PS. Just seen that Try It On Tuesday http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/ are doing Alter a Frame so am going to enter this one........well might as well, it would be rude not to wouldn't it........lol
