Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge


Happy Saturday...it's time for another challenge at Just Us Girls.  This week Elise is challenging us to alter and decorate a frame.  I decided to go with a very CAS design for my frame.  During Christmas, I love to have a variety of decorations...and they normally include berries. So, I kept my frame very simple.  I picked up some berries and staple gunned them to the frame. I added a bit of twine to cover up one of the staples.  For the actual frame, I used Basic Grey Little Black Dress paper and then stamped the sentiment from my PaperTrey Ink sentiments.  I changed the photo to black and white to go better with the frame.
We'd love for you to play along...please stop by and check out the gorgeous creations from the other design team members!

Hey Lynn! This is just gorgeous! I **LOVE** the 3D element of the berries, this will be a fabulous decoration! :) Haha on your comment on my blog! ;D I'm sure we **ARE** living parallel lives with all these boys and all these birthdays! But, it's good to be "queen" right? That is as along as the "Queen" cleans the toilet and breaks up brother battles from time to time! Have a great week! **hugs**
