A Little Bit of This...


It's Monday and I hope you have all had wonderful weekends. Today I get to kick off the week with Imaginisce and My Little Bit of Whimsy for a fun week of blog hoppin' goodness! If you arrived here from the talented Ms. Anita's blog, you are in the right place and, if you get side-tracked, you can check the link list at the end of this post.


I wanted to create a frame for my husband to have at his desk. His office is nice, but pretty dreary decor-wise, so I thought he could use a bit of whimsy. 


I took a recent photo of he and our son and put them behind one of the darling chipboard sticker frames from the Sole Sisters collection.


I adore these darling little pins and buttons from My Little Bit of Whimsy. The colors are bright, vibrant, and so cute! Now, since this was for my husband, I didn't want to go too cutesy, and I think I needed up with a happy in-between.


A chipboard sticker from the same collection was just perfect, and I added another MLBOW adornment. To create the frame itself, I used a die-cut frame backing and some Craft-a-Board for extra sturdiness.


Imaginisce and MLBOW also have some very cool prizes to give away!
