Peachy Keen Challenge 21::" 3~D Objects You've Been Framed!

Yeah 2 weeks in a row I get to play along over at the Peachy Keen Challenge! This week it is ALL about frames! Well I have had this frame, from Micheal's for about a year now that I bought for $1.oo. After searching high and low for this I FINALLY found it! I knew what picture I wanted to use and the idea was rather simple! This picture is of my son from last year when we were taking down his pool. We have one of those ~ blow up one ~ we call it our "redneck" pool! Hey it works for him and us to keep cool in the summer. Anyway my hubby used a pump to take out all the water and my son had a BLAST playing with the hose! Honestly he had more fun with that hose than in the pool! Go figure! LOL! So I stamped my background using their new "Cloudy Day" background stamp! I have to say this is a "MUST HAVE" stamp! I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I used some Stampin Up paper that is wonderful to have for grass and made them sort of look like hills. I paper pieced my PKS sun and popped the face to give it a little dimension. Then I just couldn't resist using that CUTE duck! I just LOVE him too! I liked the look of the cloud stamp so much I decided to use that for my background for my tag ( which I cut in half). For my sentiment I used 2 different My Creative Time stamps. That is what I LOVE about those stamps ~ you can mix and match them to what you need. Added my favorite Stampin Up ribbon for a little accent! I LOVE how this frame turned out ~ simple and quick to put together!

I took 2 pictures so you can that the goggles also have acetate for the lenses! Plus you might be able to see my picture of my little man better! LOVE how that water looks in the picture! He had the BEST time with that hose makes me smile just looking at it again!

  7. This is FABULOUS. I am afraid if I start making frames I will get addicted and then run out of room! My daughter made about 5 or 6 of them and they are everywhere on her book shelves. Maybe I should make them for gifts for the holidays!Then I can create and don't have to worry about the space. : )
