DANCE ---- ALTERED FRAME

I played today in my craft room making an altered frame.  The frame is from the unfinished dept. at Michael's.  My pp was by Reminisce called "JUST DANCE".  How wonderful it went with the Ballerina Tilda by Magnolia.  My embellishments were:  Say it in Pearls by Prima, and a beautiful button by Tim Holtz/Ranger.  My ribbons were from Walmart and SU.  Tilda was colored in Copics.  And my heart punch was by Martha Stewart.  I'm hoping to sell altered frames at a Bazaar in mid October.  Wish me luck.  No clue what to ask for a price.  Any ideas would be helpful!  Thanks for stopping by to visit.  hugs....

Peggie, love the frame. Good choice of DP and colours. Ang the Tilda is perfect. This would be a qonderful gift for a girl who’s into dance or ballet. Wouldn’t know to price this one though. Sorry can’t help you there—it’s invaluable.

Hugs,
Norma

Hi Carol.... I didn't have an email address for you to send back a message. The pretty paper came from our LSS in Denham Springs. It is by the company Reminisce and the paper's title is: Just Dance. I have a friend from Lumberton - close to you. Cynthia Marcantel. do you know her by chance? Her sister is Robbi Hiller. She loves to stamp and make cards too. I will be selling some things at a bazaar in Lake Charles October 15 and 16th Send me a message if you are interested and I'll find out the location and more details for you.... thanks for the sweet comments on my blog's post. hugs

Wow! This is fantastic! :D

Candy said...

Oh Peggy!
I would pay a lot more than you mentioned for this gorgeous frame!! You have invested in so many pearls and flowers as well as paper, a Beautifully coloured Tilda as well as the frame itself and your time.
I would buy one in a second for my granddaughter who started Ballet Lessons today. I know there will be tons of pictures taken of her.
Big hugs, Candy
