Back to the leather LOL


One of my favourite parts of Pam’s ABC Kits was the square leather frames she did for Jump (I know picking a favourite of these kits is like choosing a favourite child / pet). I loved the look of them, the simplicity, the elegance and yet the versatility. I have totally scraplifted / copied / been inspired by (call it what you like) them for a couple of things including a frame for a piccie of my son. I love that the leather frames can have a metal eyelet in them, or ribbons and flowers on them (Pam’s piccie of her cute nephew the other day) and still look good. So whilst I was at it, I changed the colour a couple of times and made two in each of the kit colours. They are all bundled together because frankly I am lazy and can’t be bothered separating them out, making different previews etc etc. I am trying to wrestle control of the scanner back off my hubby’s computer which has taken over and won’t release it despite me closing all the programs GGGGGRRRRRR – this is the definition of frustration because I have found another button stash. Anyway grab the frames here, whilst I try the last resort of “simulated power failure” as I try and get my scanner back. Oh and if you are unsure how to cut the photo to sit in the frame because you are new to all this like me – I used the tutorial on Shauna’s blog, and it worked a treat (the one with the piccie of her and her friends). Funny story about the tutorials – whenever someone mentions the “marching ants” I get the Dora the Explorer song from the games / video stuck in my head “we’re the marching ants, we’re the marching ants . . . . . march march march march”. Bugger, now its back again.
Best wishes,

Thanks so much for all the wonderful goodies to coordinate with the ABC Kits. I'm also glad to hear that I'm not the only one that gets songs from kids shows stuck in my head from the silliest places! Thanks again!

You really crack me up Erika - who is Dora the Explorer?? I am really out of touch with this kid's stuff! It seems I should get to know this song as I love the "marching ants" expression and always find songs to match things people say!! How sad am I? Hugs from England xx
