Princess Aria

Good Morning my Crafty Friends!  
It's hump day!  Woo Hoo!!!!!!  

Can you believe it, I'm posting and it's not a DT day!  
I really wish I could get back into posting everyday again but it seems something always gets in the way.  I really thought 2014 was going to be "the year"; you know the year for positive changes in my life but rather it has been a somewhat hard year.  We've lost two wonderful people in our family and it seems like since that time, anything and everything that could go wrong has.  

Well, I've decided to take control of my life again.  I'm determined to make those positive changes I thought would come with 2014.  And I'm beginning with this project! 

Right in the middle of all of the sorrow in our lives, something wonderful occurred, 
A couple of months ago, I shared a picture of her.  She was born March 5, 2014 and she is GORGEOUS!  Of course I am biased!!!  LOL 

Any way, I created a frame for her beautiful new born pic!  Take a look............

I purchased this open frame at Michael's while it was on 1/2 off.  I added a piece of chicken wire to the back using a staple gun.  I cut out the little banner using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge and my trusty Cricut Expression machine.  I cut her name and added some stickles to give it some sparkle.  Added the flowers in the corner and attached her photo using some mini clothes pins.  To protect my wall, I added some self adhesive felt furniture circles.  Last but not least, I added some flowers to finish it off.  

I can't promise I'll be back to posting everyday again, but I am going to make a more conscience effort to post at least twice a week and then work my way up to three times a week and so forth and so on.  

I apologize for the long post but I wanted to share all the craziness that is my life and thank each and everyone of you for sticking with me and visiting my blog when I do post!
