HLSC29 Frame It Challenge.

Our Challenge at Happileigh Scrappin' this week is set by Chris who chose Frame it, and asks - what does that mean to you? Frame the whole project or frame an image. It's up to you so long as there is a frame somewhere in your creation. 

I've made this 12 x 12 Scrap Page of my beautiful Niece Emillie. Sorry for poor quality of photo, it was bedtime before I had this finished and the energy saver light bulbs we have just don't make for good lighting. I've had a rough week and didn't think I'd get this done at all, but so love it finished. I've used a coloured Digi image by Leigh which is called Victorian Mirror - you can find it at the shop here  by clicking on the cottage button in the shops toolbar.
 The true colours of the lovely frame digi show up better on this scanned image, I added gemstones to the flower centres. Leigh has coloured versions of all her digis - wonderful if you just need to get a really quick card made (or like me had time and energy constraints) ....and also great if you are a beginner at the colouring game and like to have a guide image to show you where to shade and highlight.
 My lipstick border is from an advert in a magazine...I simply cut it out (two copies in fact to make it that long). I cut a couple of bags and lipstick and nail varnish bottle from my scrapbook papers, embellished with mini flower gems.
 It doesn't show, but the strip of paper I used to divide the two area's is glittered, I cut it with decal scissors. I can't remember where I bought these gorgeous shoes die cuts...somewhere on e-bay. I added alphabet stickers to spell out Emmie.
Hop over to the Challenge Blog and see the wonderful creations of the rest of the Happi sisters, and check out the new releases, and this months freebie, available when you buy 3 or more images. 

You don't need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to enter the challenge but you'll get two entries if you do, and as there are beautiful free images available at the store, you have no excuse do you lol.

Linda, this is a gorgeous layout! Everything about it screams girlie! Your niece is beautiful. Sorry about the week; mine has been this weekend. Our poor fur baby, Oliver has been having seizures all weekend. It would cost about $300 to take him to the emergency vet (since it's a holiday), and we just can't afford it, so we have to wait until tomorrow. Boy, if that doesn't hurt the heart. Hugs, dj
