Blogger's Challenge Sunday???

Happy Sunday! It's a beautiful day here in New England! In fact, one might go as far as to say that it's hot!!! Spring seems to escape us the last few years and we head right into Summer.

I have been having computer troubles...hence the reason for Blogger's Challenge Sunday instead of Blogger's Challenge Friday. This week's challenge was to alter something. This sweet square frame (Target find) actually hangs on a piece of ribbon, but I was having a dickens of a time photographing it that way, so I moved it to one of my plate stands in the Dining Room. (Still not the best picture, but I'm afraid that it will have to do.) The frame started off white with a black ribbon and the contrast was just too much for me, so I painted the frame and then went from there. The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly and the images are from Stampin' Up's In Full Bloom (retired). I accented the flower and the little bee with Star Dust Stickles, but you wouldn't know that from the photograph...lol. A nice little project for the two people who are always there for me and help my family out whenever I need them. I'm truly blessed!

You can see what the other Ladies altered by clicking here. Thanks so much for visiting. Have a beautiful day...Toodles! :D
