Ink.Stamp.Share Special Blog Hop...

Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink.Stamp.Share Special Blog Hop for August.  You have probably noticed we have has a little facelift with some fancy new graphics!!!

You may have joined me from Dana or starting the hop here but welcome and I hope you enjoy our Special Hop where we can showcase anything we have been working on.

Today I am sharing with you a project which came about because I had lots of pieces of grey board hanging around which were from the packaging of our Memories & More cards.  I hate to see things like that thrown away and I decided that they had sat there long enough.

The pieces were of a decent size (roughly 6" x 4") so I instantly thought of photographs.

Here is what I came up with...

This is a triple free standing photo frame.  Not having children, my furbabies really are my world and they make me laugh (and sometimes cry!) every day.  I wouldn't change them for the World.

J is for Jeffrey, B is for Betty and L is for Lily

These pictures were taken when the pups were roughly about the same age, around 15 weeks.  They are three months apart in age (you know what it is like, you get one and want another!) but they are not related in any way.  They are now aged 3.

Lily is the boss (or she likes to think so), she is around 13 years old although you wouldn't know it to look at her.  She is very affectionate, on her own terms, but often takes a bite if you don't have your wits about you!

I think this would make a lovely gift for someone so with that in mind, I of course had to make a box to gift it in.

I have also made a video of how the frames and box are made, you can make them any size or shape and are quite easy to make.  Give it a go.

I am now going to pass you on to Sue who I am sure has something lovely to share with you today.

Happy Stampin'
