Its Friday FINALLY and that means its time to stop stressing about this FRAME and just give it away with all the love, time and effort that went into it!!! hehehehe

Thank you soooooo much to all of you out there who took the time to have a think and make such awesome suggestions - I really really REALLY appreciate your kindness and effort and feel TERRIBLE that I haven't been able to incorporate ALL your ideas - they were all brilliant and I thank you so much and apologise and hope you wont be offended if you dont see your suggestion used here this time - but there IS always a next time and I just was just wowed by the support and help you all offered!!! Thanks so much guys.....xxxx

I did kind of forget to mention in the first place too that I had HOT GLUE GUNNED everything down so it wouldn't fall whilst hanging so that really limited in moving things around.....SORRY!!!!

So, in the end I was able to incorporate a suggestion by Sandy M (thank you!!!!) - she suggested glueing some blue ribbon around the edges of the frame and hanging it with a ribbon bow, so I've cut up strips of the background paper, sponged them in white and then sanded away till I was happy with the result! I know it is flawed, the frame was bigger then a 12x12 piece of paper, but I'm still really really happy with the result! I actually really like it now - it was just the thing (for me) to change it up!!

I am so scared all of you that have invested thought into this frame will still think it falls short but I am happy with it now, and really hope little Matilda will be too!!!

Thanks again, and again and again!!!
Hope you're all enjoying the AWESOME posts by Lisa - isn't she amazing!!!! Make sure to check back and see some more of her amazing stuff again soon!!

Thanks for coming,

Adele... I think you've been a little too hard on yourself. This is GORGEOUS and I'm sure Matilda (what a cute name) will adore it and treasure it forever. I know I would.

I love it too. And the paper on the edges looks great.

Don't doubt yourself so much because you make beautiful things and we all love them :)

Oh Adele, you're right, it really is beautiful (but like I told you, I really did like the first version too!) You are so talented!

looks great Adele - the extra pp around the frame worked well. Ditto to the others - don't doubt yourself so much!

Adele, I am so pleased and flattered that you could use some of my idea! :) - Which you have improved upon a good deal yourself or course, by sponging and sanding the edging paper. It looks really good! :)
(Wasn't that fun, to enjoy a bit of a collaborative effort, everyone together? Especially when you do all the work, (and do it so well), and all we have to do is throw out a few ideas! :)
I'm glad you like it now. Thank you for the email too :)
