Altered Frame for Reneabouquets Design Team

 Hi everyone, hope you are having a wonderful month. Today I have a frame I picked up at the Dollar Store and altered it to suit one of my favorite photos of my little furry boy Bubba. This is such an easy project how you can take something inexpensive and customize it for yourself. 

I did a bit of stamping on the cardstock that I used with a honeycomb stamp. Stamped it here and there around the photo. The cardstock I used is from Country Craft Creations "Bee House", a simply gorgeous collection of papers. I fussy cut some of the flowers to place around the left side of the frame to build my foundation. The florals I used are the Mini Old Gold Mulberry Paper Roses and Leaves, Caramel And Sugar Roses, Gardenia and Leaves and the Honey Roses and Leaves Mulberry Paper Flowers. 

I used some BRAND NEW items from the store on this frame, first up I used Printed Beautiful Board Small Sugar Bee Hive Laser Cut Chipboard, above the corner of the photo is the Beautiful Board Small Sugar Bee Corners Laser Cut Chipboard. The gorgeous bee I used is our Sugar Bees Premium Paper Glitter Glass Bee. I also added the Beautiful Board Medium Bee Hive Elements Laser Cut Chipboard and I cut it into pieces and added 3 layers of UTEE embossing powder to it for the illusion of honey. 

Here is a close up of that pretty sugar bee. 

Then from the trinket department in the store I had to use Reneabouquets Queen Bee Clock Charms Trinket Pack. For the centers of the flowers I dropped beads of hot glue into the middle of some microbeads, wait for them to dry and then place them in the middle of the flowers. The microbeads used are No Hole Old Gold Glass Microbeads and also No Hole Pearl Glass Microbeads . 

I hope you enjoyed this project and encourage you to take a frame and do some altering to it. Wishing you a BEE utiful rest of the month... xoxo
