Picture Frame

Happy May Day!  We've had a pretty cloudy day today.  I hope you're having better weather where you are to start the month of May!

A while back I created a picture frame for my cat.  I promised my sweetie that I would make one for his beagle as well.  Oh who am I kidding?  They're OUR animals now and they both have taken special places in our hearts.  :)  I designed this frame similar to the frame I made for the cat so that they would look good hanging near each other.

I decorated a plain white chipboard frame, painting the sides of the frame chocolate brown, adding the pattern papers and some brown ribbon over the seams.  Then I added our dog's name, a cute dog image from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and covered the entire thing in Mod Podge.  Then I added a simple bow and button accent and of course a picture of our pup.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
