Lots and Lots of Stuff... And a Dare!!!

OK... here is the skinny... or in my case... the fluffy!(LOL) There is a new SHIMMERZ DARE weekly challenge... I am SO on board for this! I check it out this week and it was to make a frame... so here is mine and here is what I did. I went to the local thrift store and found this frame for 15 cents. Then I bought a HUGE box of silk flowers for $1. I had the prima leaves and well... I had the kid laying around too and got an old picture of her and here is the result! I painted the flowers and the leaves with SHIMMERZ. I also painted the red and white squares with SHIMMERZ also. I arranged the leaves and flowers on my freshly SHIMMERD frame PRESTO!!! The pic is not great but I will get batteries for the camera tomorrow and be back on track!
