My mom has sung the song you are my sunshine to M since he was a little baby. When I saw this frame project by Echo Park using the Hello Summer line I was just sold on making it for her birthday. I followed their pattern, but since my picture opening wasn’t in the same place as theirs it’s a bit different.
I purchased the frame, and the paper pack, at Hobby Lobby on sale and using a coupon. The frame was actually a beach theme and I just covered it with the blue paper, to mimic the sky, like the example frame on Echo Park.
My sun is cut from the Paper Pups cricut cartridge and I used one of the sayings from the paper pack in place of where they had a puppy. M is constantly asking to spend time with Grandma and always comes home happy so I thought it was perfect. Some of the elements have pop dots, and some don’t, so there is a very nice mix of depth to the frame.
I also wanted to share tip with you, that my friend La-Vie shared with me, when doing a project like this. Since all of the items that extend over the edge of the frame are stickers I kept wondering how I would keep them from sticking to say wrapping paper. Once stuck down you sprinkle the extra bits with baby powder! Genius I tell you!
