Where have I been?!? and Baby Shower Name Frame

First of all I want to show you a gift a made for a fellow co-worker's baby shower tomorrow. I knew what I wanted to do just couldn't get it made until today, but better late than never.  I hope she likes it: 


I really like the way that this turned out.  I had already colored the Mo's Digital Pencil, Spit Happens image a while back and planned to use it for a photo book cover, but like this idea better. 
The inside dimensions of this walmart frame are 4 3/4 X 11 1/2 inches. I usually don't leave the glass in the frame as I add flowers and lace and more buttons that would just get mashed.   Since this was for a boy, the embellishments were kept to a minimum and the layers allowed me to add the glass, even though the Play ticket  and button on the bakers twine are popped up with mounting foam.

The background dp all coordinates and is three different pieces.  The letters of the name, 100 Boy and the truck were cut out with my Cricut.  The Play ticket is a Tim Holtz ticket that I thought was perfect for the corner and the theme.


I have been out of commission the past couple of weeks with High blood pressure and issues with my computer giving me migraines so have not been able to be on the computer except at work.  Went to the eye dr and the problem apparently is not with my prescription, so went to my medical dr and the day I went my blood pressure was way too high and I wasn't even aware of it.   More tests and Dr. appts next week and just having to stay off the computer.

I will do what I can but for the next week or until they figure out what is going on.  5 min on the computer starts my migraines, so I have to save my computer time for work, Don't give up on me, I will be back as soon as I can :)

Have a wonderful creative day.

Cathy
