Frame the Moment

Good morning friends and happy Thursday!!

tiddly inks

I am so excited to share with you today that I am a special guest for Tiddly Inks 2 year celebration with the theme, Frame the Moment! When Christy asked I was pleasantly surprised and super excited, it was with great pleasure I said yes!

I was browsing the Tiddly Inks store and ran across this cutie called Tree Hugger.
It instantly took me back to almost two years ago in the park where my little Samantha was caught in the moment of loving on a tree, much like this digital stamp, and I knew I had to work with it!

Here's what I came up with.
 See the resemblance? It's like Christy drew this image with my photograph in mind.
I colored her in copics and created this beveled frame from Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette online Store.

Here's a side view, and it even stands up all on it's own.

I realize the decoration was pretty sparse, but I honestly couldn't think of anything cuter than my Samantha framed in this paper bevel frame (which is quite sturdy) alongside that wonderful Tiddly Inks digi.

Here it is on my mantle above the fireplace.. I think I will create two more of these with my other children in mind using different digital stamps from Tiddly Inks.

It would be great if you headed over to the challenge blog to take part in all the specials going on.. join a challenge, say hi..
Thanks for always being great!!
