Frame Makeover!

Happiiie Friday To All My Friends!

We are heading towards a weekend...and for a change I am planning to explore some adventure in this leaving the kids at home with Mumma and going on trecks with my better half....slightly excited :)

Before leaving I will make a quick post of an upcycled frame. This frame is almost 8 years old and m slightly got bored with its look...then thought of doing a makeover :) and here is the final outcome :... This is two sided frame.... so I tried it with a vertical twist.... flower embellishment is in fabric...also used different pp and pearls to make it more lively!

Now here comes the other side of the frame....the flower embellieshment was actually a part of broken hairband of my lil one... and I loved it soo much that I wanted to use it any of my here it is....

Again top it with different PP, pearls and an affile tower die cut...

 and the other side can be used horizontally this :) So both of my cutieee pies are happy as they both have dedicated wall on this frame!

 and I started from here....

Hope you will like it :)
