  11. So cute. I love the details! I have a project i did but trying to get a good pic. My camera doesn's take good ones. Used my daughters & it won't allow her to email it. I'm going to keep trying because I haven't done a project in so long.

  16. Holly, this is the type of project that I love -- taking something rather plain and grabbing what you have turning it into something fabulous. Those frames are darling. Thank you so much for sharing this link on the Boardwalk Bragfest.
