Hello everyone, hope your all ok and having a nice week (not sure there is such a thing unless its holiday- but ohwell!) This post is taking me ages to complete, cos I have a sore back, I do swimming for P.E at school and think I've pulled a muscle or something, and it hurts the more I hunch forward over this computer- so I keep having to stop every so often and sit right up and back to straighten my stupid back, lol !

This week the Colour Create Challenge sounded good - 'Pink Sorbet,Lemon and Chocolate' so I decided since this is probably my most favourite colour combo, I had to do it!
I just didnt know what to do.. then I spotted my little canvas I bought and painted at the weekend, and realised I didnt really like what I had done with it.. so I decided to 'Reduce,Re-use&Recyle' and I got scissors and cut all the material off the frame to leave me with a lovely little photo frame.. so I decided that should be what I used.. and I painted it white then started to decorate it until I came up with this..

and my image close-up.....

Image: Daisy, Coloured with Watercolours, I drew the letters to spell Kim and the little flower is just some wee stamp from my stash!
Embellishments: The brown and yellow flowers are punched using my Grannys flower punch, the cream ribbon down the side is from my stash and it has a nice sparkly pin shoved in the bow and last but not CERTAINLY not least - my most favourite embellishment in the world = PEARLS!!! and they are Kanban.
Frame: Well as I have said above, I painted the frame white then just went round the inside bit with some 'Worn Lipstick' Distress Inks and stamped all my images and my name and stuff onto white card and stuck it on the back.. and VOILA! there we have my frame :)!

I hope you like it.. 'cos I do =D ..
I would love to hear your comments if you have a spare second or two :)

Daisy's looking lovely, Kim. Nice to see you re-using and recycling things instead of consigning them to the bucket! Look forward to seeing this on your bedroom wall. Very nice work.
