Prima's Divine Shabby Chic "Altered Frame"!

Happy weekend everyone!

For today's post I'm posting a altered wood frame that Micheal's carries for just $1! Not bad huh?!! So of course I had to grab a few to play with yet this was the first one I've ever done!

This is Wild Orchid Crafts DT monthly challenge for the month of March! Our theme to go with was to use pastel colors and make whatever we wanted!! Being that CHA shared some new releases from so many of my favs is Prima! One of their new releases is from Jodie Lee called "Divine"! So I just got my paper pad and it had all the pastels I could ever need! So I altered my frame with this collection and added several WOC items and it was a perfect match!! yay!! :)

Here is what I created!
(Remember that direct product links will be listed at the very end of this post! Let me know if you have any questions! :) 

I decided to add some small hanging rings to add some ribbon for hanging...
So, it will hang from this seam binding!
 I think I got all the pastels I could! right? lol

Please stay tuned for April's project challenge as I will be challenging you to join in, there will be something you could win if you participate! 
The video will be up soon!!..and of course I'll share it here 
and on my FB page!
