What a fun project, or should I say projectS! 

I made these to go along with my big something that I am doing - will tell all about it later...  But I am super excited about these!  These are 5x7 frames I bought, bare wood (don't worry will be painted but couldn't take it any longer so I had to take a pic and post...) and decorated the inside of the frame with cute-sy stuff! 

The first one is for Anna Faye, my niece, and I've wanted to make her something like this for a while now.  She will be 2 in December and I can't wait!  Precious little baby girl - she is adorable!  So, anywho...  I am going to go down the list of what carts I used for what:  Tree is from Just Because (swing cut off), Elephant is from Create A Critter, as are the grass pieces, clouds and the 2 lil' butterflies.  The latters are from Storybook.  The frame is a tag from Gypsy Wanderings and I welded a marquis shape in the middle of it with my Gypsy.  The hearts on the tree are from Plantin Schoolbook. 

The second one is for a friend of mine at work who's little boy is turning 1 in August, Bryson.  His first Borthday Party is going to be "monkey themed."  and I remember from her baby registry they had registered for safari themed stuff.  So I used my Create A Critter and made a couple of monkeys, and cut out the vines as well, then used Designer's Calendar for the font ( a little less girly than my other fonts).  A little inking and doodling and it is done! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to look! I really appreciate it!  .

Crafty hugs!
