Flight of Fancy frame tutorial

SONY DSC

Hi Everyone,
me2I’m Maggie sharing a simple tutorial using Dictionary, stamps and spray. My daughter wanted to have a fancy dress for her prom, off we went in search of the fancy dress at a posh designer store that so happen to be having a great 75% off  from last year’s trunk show. As you know I’m a bargain hunter,  I had get an extra $60.00 off any purchased of $150.00. We found a fabulous dress that was $589 down to $148.00 with said 75%off, a brooch  that was 24.99for $5.00, our total was  101.65. I left with a very happy kid and a fancy dress…
Which brings us to today’s tutorial flight of fancy! I was perusing Michael’s 75% bin, yeah my middle name is 75% off lol… when I stumble over this cute little frame from $1.99 to .49cents, I knew right away it will be perfect to commemorate the fancy dress picture I took in the store fitting room before they scolded me no pictures in the store !sheesh.

Welcome to Rendez Vous Monday!

What a great frame! I totally love stuff that looks like this but my brain just can't think up how to make it look awesome one my own. I think it's the same brain section scrapbookers use (can't do that either) so loving how you walked through each step!

Found you on the Tip me Tuesday party.
