Altered Butterfly Frame

I had a lot of fun altering this frame tonight. I was thrilled to find the frame today at Zellers on a clearance table for 70% off the lowest yellow ticketed price! That meant I got it for $1.93! What a screamin' deal! lol :)

Altering this frame ended up being a lot harder than I had anticipated, but I like how it turned out and it'll make for a different frame to have around the house to hold a pic of my two daughters. :) I took this picture on their first day of school last Fall.
This is what the frame looked like pre-altered. A nice frame, but it was beat up a bit, hence it being on clearance. But, in my mind, that just made for an opportunity for it to be altered! Yes, I will alter pretty much anything! lol :) The frame measures 8.5" x 10.5" and the photo insert is 4" x 6".

Well, I have to get up early to go get my hubby at the dockyard so I better call it a day. I'll be back soon with more to show you. Until then...

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Wild Saffron (K&Company)
Tools: Kraft Knife, Mod Podge - Mat Finish (Plaid), Pencil, Ruler, Foam Brush, Scissors, Alfred Sung Frame (Zellers)

This looks awesome. The girls grow so fast. We will make sure that they meet Hailey when we come out next which probably won't be until June 2010.
