"Happiness" Sign

Happy Sunday!
Earlier this month I made a present for my dear friend Mel. It was her birthday and I wanted to create a little something special for her - especially because she is always making amazing hand knit gifts for me and my family. If only I had time to knit too! Some day I'll be able to fit it all

in.....hey, it doesn't hurt to dream! :-)
I found the frame at TJ Maxx of all places! Yet another reason for me to LOVE LOVE LOVE that store! - I find reasonably priced frames to use other than putting pic's in.
Here is what I used to make this altered frame into a nice wall hanging.....
CS - Chocolate Chip
Accessories - Decor Elements "Happiness", Riding Hood Red Patterns Designer Series Paper, Rose Red 1/4" Grograin Ribbon, Filigree Designer Brads, Pretties Kit (pearls), Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion Too
Scallop Edge Punch, paper piercer, Sticky Strip
I really enjoy using the Decor Elements! The hardest part is finding nice items to put the D.E. on! Off to TJ Maxx to see if I can find more frames!
Thanks for stopping by,
