I finished my baby girl frame element. Now all I need do it get them in the mail. The baby, teddy and duck were cut using the Everyday Paper Doll cartridge. The thing on the baby's head looks really odd in this picture. It is a flower, like the ones at the top and I put a bow in the middle of it. A 4 x 6 photo will fit, the baby, etc. are not glued down at the top so a photo can be slipped in behind them.

This is my Mystery card for July. The mystery item is the numbers. They are grunge board and I painted them gold. Oops! the ink I used wouldn't dry. After two days of waiting, I finally patted it dry with a paper towel. At least it wasn't sticky. I hadn't used grunge before and not sure if I want to in the future. Of course, I could read to find out how to work with it, or go to the Tim Holtz web site for information on it.
I have my August mystery item and have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with it. It is very colorful and I love the colors. An idea is forming...

Its Friday night, the weekend has begun. Everyone have a relaxing and safe weekend. Take care.

Great job, the frame is just adorable, now if I can figure out how to be 39 again, that would be perfect for me :).
