Gosh, been a while!

It seems so long since I posted. Have been around but very busy and no time to play, do not like to post if I have nothing to show!

Today Elliot was going to a friends after playschool which meant I had all day to spend doing my favorite thing - making a HUGE mess!!

Have been altering my frame for the challenge over on DC.
I picked this frame up at a bootsale a few months ago and it has sat waiting patiently to be altered! Have used metal to cover it with. The metal was embossed and coloured with alcohol inks and acrylic paint and then distressed it a bit more before sticking it on the frame.
The little puzzle tiles are made by sticking letters on a piece of gray board and the covering in metal. Can you see a theme running through here! am loving metal at the moment. I needed somewhere to display all the charms I received in the jigsaw charm swap so have left the picture holes empty, without putting the frame backs on, so that it displays them better.
Have also decided that as it is my big 40th birthday this year, I am going to have a whole week of parties! So have been arranging meals out with friends, drinks out, take aways in and a big garden party at the end of the week to finish it all off!! .......better start saving......

Oh love your frame Dee - what a great shape in the first place. Great metalwork, love your embossing on it - and it really sets the puzzle pieces off a treat (I see one of mine on there...hehehe!!)
