Tu-Tu Tutorial - Altered Photo Frame

Hi Girls!!

My name is Lori Boyd.
I am Co-Owner and Design Team Member here at The Pink Elephant. I was so happy to receive so much positive feedback as far as our tutorials are concerned. We enjoy doing them for you and we were over the moon excited to hear you all are enjoying viewing them. You all are the BEST blog viewers ever!!!!

I am super thrilled to bring you my first tutorial for The Pink Elephant.
An Altered Photo Frame.
I have decided to keep it quick, simple and fun!! I am not a big reader, so I tend to lean towards tutorials with more pictures, less words!! So that is how I decided to do this one for you!!
Here we go!! Watch closely if you blink you might miss it!! Hee Hee!

$1 Wooden Photo Frame from Michael's
Stampin' Up! Designer Paper
SU! Paper Snips
Cuttlebug Alpha Dies - Hippie Chick
Floral Embellishments
Tacky Glue
SU! Sanding Blocks

To start...Trace the frame onto the back side of your desired piece of Designer/Scrapbook Paper.

Cut out frame shape. Add adhesive to frame. Adhere paper to frame.

Adhere paper to frame. Next, using your SU! Sanding Block or Sand Paper, Sand the edges until smooth and neat!! I know this seems too simple to be true, but it is just that simple...As now it's time to have fun and embellish!!! You can embellish with any decorative item you choose. For this frame, I chose ribbon, buttons and flowers. Cut my little one's name out, using the Cuttlebug Alpha Die Set Hippie Chick and topped it all off with a simple 4x6 Snapshot of my Sweet Ella!!

Hope you enjoyed my quick, simple and fun little tutorial!! I know there wasn't a lot of explanation so if you have any question please feel free to ask!!
If you all decide to make one or have already made one previously post a picture in the comments, so we can all be inspired!! Woo Hoo, this was fun!!

Viagra Affect On Women
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
