This is Me! (Picture frame for the Hens Den)

Title: This Is Me
Featuring: Simple Stories Fabulous line.

This is a picture frame that I did that I did with a picture of my best friends daughter Sophia who will be 10 in another month. She is basically my niece, (not by blood) but I was there when she was born and she calls me Auntie Carla)

Simple Stories Fabulous line
4x4 craft picture frame
Tim Holtz distress ink spiced marmalade
Prima vintage trinkets
Maya Road candy stripe blossoms
Petaloo mulberry paper flowers
Doodlebug Jewels
Prima say it in Crystals

Take Sassy patterened paper from the Simple stories line and adhere to the frame using modge podge.
Apply modge podge to the outside too and let dry to give it a little of a gloss finish.
Sand the edges, and then ink with distress ink.
Cut journaling card off of the sheet (this is me) and then also cut the min flags off of the other journaling card and adhere to the (this is me card).
Add to the picture frame below the picture.
Adhere ribbon to the side of the frame.
Cut bingo card out of the paper line, and adhere to the frame next to the journaling card.
Take prima vintage trinket and use ribbon to make a bow, add to the ribbon down the side of the frame.
Then add flowers around the trinket and leaves and prima say it in crystals.
