Bella Muse Challenge

Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend!  Yesterday it was so windy here.  Gusts of winds up to 50 mph.  I thought my house was going to blow away!!  My electricity went off, came on, went off and came on!  We've gone from temps in the 70's to temps in the 50's and that dreadful four letter word "SNOW" is in the forecast for the beginning of the week.  I've been up since 4:30 AM as my daughter embarked on a trip to Albuquerque, NM to visit a friend for a week.  I'm a nervous Nellie right now as she has a stop over in Denver and this is only the second time she has flown on an airplane,  and the first time flying by herself and with changing flights.  I'll be happy when I get the call that she has arrived at her destination.  You all know how us moms are, as I kept asking her tons of questions and her answer to me was mom, I'm not a child any more.   Ouch!!!   My little one has grown up way to quickly and will turn 21 on March 4th.

I've got an altered frame to share with you today. 
I had seen a layout someone did using this beautiful image for the Bella Muse Challenge at Bella Creations, and couldn't resist!  I love vintage!  I dug into my flower stash and was able to use these beautiful flowers that had been part of a monthly scrapbook kit.

Here are a few closeups:



Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
I will be back on Tuesday for my DT reveal for Frosted Designs.  Don't forget that Frosted Designs in having a DT call.  You can check out the details here.

So your telling me I will still worry about Nate as much as I do now when he is 21...lol I guess this is part and parcel of being a mum, she will be fine by the way....but I would be the absolute same.

I love your stunning frame, just amazing Deb. You are an artist. We are having extreme heat over here 40 degrees and is so unbearable.... Melxx

What a beautiful frame - you do such lovely work. This will look great hanging up. Hope you didn't get any more SNOW- you've had such terrible weather in your part of the woods. Keep warm and hope the lights stay on- so you can create.
