PPPR Design Team Day

Hello and happy Wednesday to you!
It's Design Team Day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I've got a fun project to share with you today.  I used the "Friday Freebie" from this past Friday to decorate a frame for my granddaughter....

This summer we went on an RV trip to Destin, Florida. While we were there, we visited a restaurant that had a couple of gators available for a photo shoot!  Emma wasn't real sure about it at first, but when I talked up the bragging rights she would have with all her friends back home she decided to give it a try. She did have one stipulation - Nonna and Papa had to join in the fun.  Notice I'm standing in the back as far away as possible from "Stubby" the gator!

Materials Used:
* I found the perfect frame at Michael's - I love the rustic look of this frame
* My cute little gator is from the Birthday Gator Cutting File. You can still get him as a Freebie until this Friday!  He comes with a cute birthday party hat.
* Numbers - Stickers from Recollections
* Twine - Blue Berry from Trendy Twine

I hope Emma treasures this frame and hangs onto it for years to come because I don't plan on getting that close to another gator anytime soon!

Okay, that's it for me today.  Be sure to stop by the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog to see what the other Designers have in store for you today.  You're gonna love what you see!  Don't forget - you still have time to play along with our "Birthday Challenge". You can link up your project here.  I hope you will join our challenge, I would love to see your creation!

Until next time,
