Krazy Crafting Crew Fun With Frames Blog Hop

Welcome to our Fun With Frames Blog Hop brought to you by our Krazy Crafting Crew. 
We are an independent hop team that enjoys 
sharing our work with everyone and hope to inspire you with new ideas for you own 
creativity. We are a team who loves to do all different themes, such as cards, layouts, 3D 
projects and so much more. We do all the paper crafting from traditional to digital. Mostly 
traditional, every now and then there may be a little mixed media too! 

Now on to some fun (drum roll here)....................
I was so excited about our Fun With Frames theme this month!!!  Here is what I made: 
My son Tyler graduated from high school last year.  I wanted to create something to display some of his friends photos for his bedroom.

I started with a wood open-back frame from Hobby Lobby that I painted black. 
I stapled chicken wire to the back with my staple gun.  I added felt pads all around the back of the frame to prevent the edges of the chicken wire from scratching my wall. 
The front looked a little bare, so I fired up my cameo!
I found a quote about friends on pinterest and typed it on my virtual mat using a font from my computer.  This quote will go on the bottom of the frame.

Next, I typed out his nicknames for the top of the frame.
I cut out the words in white vinyl.
Here is the bottom with the quote on it. 
Here is the top.

Just add photos and..... 
It is complete!!  I used tiny clothes pins.  The button in the top corner is from Tyler's friend and teammate who was in a bad car accident sophomore year.  We were not sure if he would survive the accident and if so, would he would have severe brain damage.  That year, the baseball team dedicated their season to Tyler Milz and he came back to play baseball his senior year.  He is not 100% the same, but he is a fighter and he gave us so much inspiration!!  The other boys on this frame are great friends and baseball teammates.

Thank you for coming by and hope to see you again next month!
