Sparkle N Sprinkle Anything But a Card Blog Hop

WELCOME to the SPARKLE N SPRINKLE Anything But A Card Blog Hop!
I am excited and deeply inspired by what the design team has come up with.

If you have hopped here by way of  the lovely Karin, then you are in the right place! Otherwise, you might like to start from the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle site to become eligible for some FABULOUS prizes!  And please don't forget to stop by to see what the super-talented April has created to inspire you after this.

I don't want to keep you too long and will go on to show you what I decided to do with re-cycled cereal boxes.

I started with a box of Cheerios..


And ended up with a photo frame.

This was a really fun project to make. The Sparkle N Sprinkle's double-sided "Tear-ific" tape makes it so easy to put this frame together! I would say that the hardest part was looking through my album to see which picture to put into it! I have decided to put my daughter's picture....she had on her pretty hat and Easter-colored dress.


If you didn't guess it already, that is the poinsettia re-vamped as Easter flowers. Yes, it IS a very versatile set. Please check out the Holiday Foliage set! I find it very lovely...and versatile! Even in the Spring!




Yes, very versatile. Here is a picture of it in pink-colored flowers.


I guess I never showed you the back of the photo frame. So here it is:


Thank you for taking the time to visit m blog.  Please remember to leave a comment to become eligible for a prize (some are “hidden” in the various posts) and don't forget to stop in and see what the lovely April Williams has come up with to inspire you!

Can you say INCREDIBLE?! How gorgeous! Love how you used the poinsettias - many people don't even know they bloom all year long LOL - but the remarkably soft colors really look rich. And your daughter... is there any subject matter cuter? I think not. She will love growing up and enjoying the marvelous chronology of her life in your artwork. Just beautiful. hugs, de

Well, aren't you the clever crafter. Who would think an old cherrio box would end up looking so fantastic. It is gorgeous. I just love your flowers too and done up in the blue, one would never guess it was a poinsettia either. I have that stamp. Might have to try it myself some day. Thanks for inspiring me.

Wow, looking at it I'd never guess you used cardboard for the frame. You've turned an everyday item into something very beautiful. Even though there is a lot for my eyes to see on the frame, my eyes were immediately drawn to your daughter. This is due to your wonderful use of color. Love it, and your daughter is a real cutie!
