Little Scraps Of Heaven Designs Blog Hop

Thanks so much to those of you who visited my blog during the Splash of Summer blog hop from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
And especially to those who became followers. I'm so glad to have you join me.The photo frame project below was made using LSHD Road Trip Kit.


My project is a cute little frame I made to display one of my vacation photos. I loved the little Road Trip pattern kit as soon as I saw it, and knew it would be perfect for my blog hop project.


The frame is an inexpensive cloth covered chipboard frame and I used it as is. I glued the title straight to the frame and used a pop dot to pop up the car. I wanted to have the car appear to be on a road, so I simply cut a strip of grey cardstock to represent pavement and added white lines, and then popped it under the car.




I also added a road sign on one side to help balance out the frame (not included in the pattern set) 




One more look at the final project.




Thanks for coming by my blog. I hope you look around at some of the other projects I have done.
