Monday Motivational 2/28 ~ It's A Frame Up!

Welcome to the hive!  To highlight something very special you put it in a frame!   This week we will be looking at different ways to frame your favorite photos!  Here's Rosemary .... 

Welcome to Monday Motivational!!..So glad you are here to see what I have to share with you today.

Last week I spent several days with my HoneyBee sisters where we shared a 3 bedroom condo.  Each of us was asked to bring a project for all to do, and I thought of a picture frame.  I knew there would be a group photo and thought how fun it would be to design a frame to put that photo in. 

I found the perfect frame at Michael's and bought each HoneyBee one for their project.  I also brought with me a selection of different papers, punches, Nestabilities and my Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge, but the project was not restricted to use just those things I brought with me.  Each HoneyBee was to create their own frame to whatever design they wanted, and use whatever they needed to get the look they wanted.  I love how everyone brought so much to share.

For my frame, I used DCWV Linen Closet card stock.  The leaves were cut with my Sizzix die using paint chips I picked up at Home Depot.  The branches were punched with my Martha Stewart punch and I used my I-Top and card stock for the centers. Added flowers to the outside of the frame are from Wild Orchid.

Here is a close up of the corner cluster.

Don't you just love that paper?!! On the top of my list for favorite tools has got to be the I-Top

We had no idea where the time was going and we wanted to do as much as we could.  I had seen some beautiful frames getting worked on so I'm excited to check back on Wednesday to see the finished projects!  Please stop back and see what our HoneyBees have done!!

Don't forget that we are looking for Guest Designer HoneyBees!  If you have an idea for a project to share, see the information on the sidebar, and send us the information at  You could be the next HoneyBee!!
This is your last night to leave comments and participate in challenges and posts, so you can be entered in the February Blog Honey drawing.   The winner will be announced on March 2nd.
Happy crafting ~
and the HoneyBees
