I met Liz last year while I was working on the project "A Homespun Affair" (a sister site to my blog a monthly crafting magazine that I created with a talented group of designers.

We would certainly love it if you stopped in and joined us!

I just finished this project on Wednesday night, and it has already been featured over at Craft Junction!  Craft Junction is fairly new, but is a spin off from Northridge Publishing, who have been around a long time! I will be guest designing for Craft Junction in the coming weeks, so be sure to stop by! ALSO, they are about to hit 15,000 fans on Facebook, so I'm sure something SUPER fun will be coming soon! Stop by and "LIKE" Craft Junction on Facebook so you don't miss out!! Ok, on to my project!!

This project was made using a ready to finish wood frame from Hobby Lobby. This frame was on Clearance for $1.50. When I see the frames anywhere around 2.00 or less, I pick them up and finish them, and as you can see, they make perfect gifts!!
 I received this Kit from Northridge Publishing for a Photo frame I made that was published in their Home Decor December Edition Book. You can view that project Here

This Collection is "The Sweetest Thing" Tangerine from My Minds Eye, and it lives up to its name!! 

I LOVE the Chipboard stickers! They made making this frame a breeze!! Even the adorable Bling dots came in this kit from the collection! 

I took this sticker (Below) and bent it around two dowells to give it a few ruffles and bent the edges upward. 

I added some Twine from Talking Twine and Trim 

 Dont you just love this kit!! There are so many other pieces I can't WAIT to use!!
My Minds Eye, is quickly becoming one of my Favorites for my projects! Between this set, other "Sweetest things sets, Honey, Miss Caroline, Lost and Found, Lost and found II, On the bright Side and the Follow your heart Be Happy set, I could use MME forever!
