Frame-up A Family Vacation Memory!

7/14/2016 | Lynn Lilly
Almost 15 years ago our family took a vacation in a rented RV to a family reunion. I came across a misplaced photo when going through boxes of photographs from back before the dawn of digital! It was a perfect shot of our family in the moment so I decided to put it in one of my special frames.
The frame I chose is a 5 x 7″ beveled edge frame that has screws on each corner.  You can float your photo between the front and back panels of the frame.  The following is a list of the materials I used.
Materials:
Deflecto:  5 x 7″ beveled edge frame #799593CR
12″ cardstock:  collaged with sayings; cream colored
self adhesive alphabet letters:  1″ gold sparkle
sticker:  3-D birdcage with bluebird
die-cut:  blue flowers (about 3″)
adhesive tape runner
tacky glue
Tools:  
paper trimmer
scissors
Instructions:
1.  Cut the selected cardstock to 5 x 7″.  Adhere to the cream colored cardstock and cut out leaving a 1/8″ border.
2.  Cut and place the photograph on the scrapbook paper; adhere.
3. Remove the screws from the frame and set aside.  Place the scrapbooked page on the back panel of the frame.  Layer the front panel over the back panel and replace the screws.
4.  Embellish the frame with the stickers and die cut. I used the tacky glue to adhere the blue flower to the hardware on the corner of the frame.

I hope you got some inspiration here today.  I love deflecto frames as they are a great surface to embellish on the outside after the signage or photo is placed between the panels.  
Make sure to take the time to enjoy the small blessings along the way and
Live Life with a Flourish!
