"Family"....Altered Frame

 Hi all...hope this finds you happy and well.  Summer sure is speeding by all tooooo quickly.  I'm loving every minute but they sure to fly by.
Time to start getting ready for my July classes for Scraps! when I saw this frame in the craft department of my local WM I had to grab one and see what I could come up with....and here it is.
 The frame is 12x12 and comes with nine, four inch pieces that fit inside of it.  I decided to 'think outside the box" and use them as mini 'frames' to surround the larger one.  I used BasicGrey papers...yummy designs from the Sweet Threads collection.
 My fonts, words, and photo corners are all cricut cuts...you will probably recognize....Heritage, Home Accents, Home Decor, Opposites Attract, A Child's Year and Wall Decor and More.
 I've cut my green paper at 3 1/2 inches and then used a corner rounder punch on them.  The frames are stained with Peeled Paint Distress Stain by Ranger and accented with Walnut Distress stain, also used these to color my grungeboard.  I've also added some fun grunge shapes from Tim Holtz. 
 Have you seen the Enamel Accents by Ranger????  Just luv them...I've added them to accent the grunge cuts and used them instead of brads in my hinges.
A bit of lace, a button, and some fave pix of my boysss completes the project....hope you like...can't wait to teach this class!!!!!
