first project today is a frame - I love frames - especially when you make them yourself!!   I used a plain 5x7 mat opening mat.  had these awesome stickers for a while now - Studio basics 101 from creative imaginations called "rugged boys" and a few from pebbles inc. called "My Guy".  I just stuck them on there letting a few hang off a little.
Inked around the edge and on top using a yellow sponge and the colors Star Spangled Blue, chocolate, & orange ink pads from Ctmh.  SIMPLE AND EASY and now I have a cute boy frame!!  NOW JUST THE HANDSOME LIL GUY IN THE MIDDLE!
did you notice I 'tried" to make the bubble words like they were coming from the engine..
