DRS Postage Frame FUN!!!

We are having a challenge over at the DRS blog on ways to use the postage frame stamps other than the intended purpose (Stamp it on an envelope, and
add postage.) Well, here is what I came up with!

I stamped postage frame onto white card stock and colored it with
copic markers and of course , glitter pens. Then I took a small photo of the most gorgeous child ever (my darling AVA) and adhered it in place. After that, I took my Xyron and laminated the whole thing and added magnets to the back of it. I adhered DSP to some chipboard and cut it out with my new nesties label dies. I added magnets to this as well so that the photo will stay in place and then can be removed later and stuck onto Mimi's fridge at home so she may gaze upon my lovely child's face!!!

On a piece of kraft paper, I used the DRS branch stamp to add some texture to the background, and I used my favorite sentiment on another nesite die cut. Then after alot of dots with my gel pens and tons of sponging... here is my
creation! I hope that you will take a peek at the blog and play along if you would like. We would love it if you did... please link your project to the page so we can see your creation as well. thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
