Sunday 20th February layout challenge

I hope everyone enjoyed last week's first card challenge, hope to see lots more of you card makers joining in! Anyway on to this week which is another layout challenge for you!

This week Amanda's challenge is..Frames! Use a frame of some kind on your page. Frame your picture or your whole layout, just get a frame or two on there!

The design team have been busy creating some more lovely creations to inspire you.


I like using frames on my layouts when I fancy something a bit different! There are so many different ways to use them, I framed the whole layout on this one as it's nice to see a bit of patterned paper all around it and I also made another frame for the photos. The photos are of my little nephew having great fun jumping in the hay bales!

I resisted the urge to add my traditional layered elements with this layout. I really wanted to focus on the frames, photos and sentiments on the page so I kept it "clean", which is not the norm for me but I LOVE how it turned out!


I've had this idea in mind for a little while now, so this challenge was just what I needed. I used a piece of Sassafras paper that has all these little mini frames on. I've cute some out and taken out the centres to frame some mini photos that I've printed off.
Here is my layout using a Pink love heart which was an overlay that I trimmed,  as a frame around the 2 photos at the top. I have also used a frame one the title in the top left. It was a Websters Pages Sweet Season sticker frame.

This is an 8 x 11 inch layout of my son at the beach last summer.  The frames around the photos are chipboard painted with various acrylic paints, and I also stamped a frame around the title at the top. I only had one of the little frames left, so I cut it in half diagonally - you don't see the whole frame anyway as it's tucked in behind the main photo.

This week we were also joined by a couple of the other DT girls, Julie and Tessa for this challenge.
This challenge happens to go live on my son's 14th Birthday!! ( I know, I know, I am much to young to have a 14 year old! LOL! ) ... and so I thought it would be great to document how I feel about the years flying by! :)  My title/journaling says it all.... "When...did it happen? When did you grow up on me? I blinked and you are now fourteen! WOW! I am proud to be your Mom and I will love you forever! To me, you will forever be my baby. It seems like it was just... yesterday" :):):):):):):):):):):):) The picture of him in this layout is when he was just 8 years old! :)

Hope you have fun joining in with this challenge, can't wait to see what you create, please link them up to Mr linky!
