Valentine Blog Hop

Welcome Everyone to Princess and the Paper Valentine Blog Hop! If you are arriving from loganscraftymomma you are on the right track and if you are just visiting my blog be sure to check out the amazing talent along this hop.  I will post a link to the line up below.  I am the last stop along this hop and I must thank Jillian for hosting!  I am so excited to share with you all my first altered picture frame that I so wanted to keep for myself but have given it to my parents for their anniversary!  The chocolate spaniel "Miss Abby" is my parents dog and the lab/shepard "Miss Riley" is mine and they both enjoy the time they get to spend together.  This stinkin cute picture was taken at the cottage last summer!

I purchased the frame from Michaels painted it in Folk Art Berries N' Cream paint then covered it with Basic Grey's Blush PP.  The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The title was cut from the Sweetheart cartridge at 2.53' on my gypsy.  The terrier dog was cut from Create a Critter at 2.53' and was blinged up my IRock with a rhinestone, stickles on the ears and I used my white gelly pen for some puppy freckles then added chalk to the cheeks and attached it to the frame with a wobble. I must tell you as I showed my parents how the wobble worked and wobbling it over and over, cause I think they are the cutest things ever my dad finally said to me "leave my wobble alone"!  It was quite funny!
Prima flowers along with buttons, brads and yummy twine were used to embellish the right hand side of the frame. 

Now what blog hop wouldn't be a great hop without some blog candy!  In order to qualify you must be or become a follower and leave a comment.  Love to read all the comments.  Here is what I have to offer!  Notice all the pink and red!  Wouldn't be a Valentine Blog Hop without!  I will choose a winner on Monday, February 14th, 2011, Valentines Day using random.org so be sure to leave a way in which I can get a hold of you.
