All That Stickles - Black Diamond Deals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Black Diamond Deals Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

The biggest shopping day of the year is just around the corner, and the ATS design team has put together some fun, sparkly shopping projects to help inspire those shopping lists! (And maybe the shine from all the glitter will help wake you up in the middle of the night to hit the stores!)

 If you've come from Angeline's blog, you're in the right place! If you've just come across the hop, please go to All that Stickles to see the WHOLE hop!

Photo frames are a great gift, so I made went to Michael's and bought a $1 frame and spiffied and stickled it up!  

I used Bo Bunny Back to Basics paper, some flowers from my stash and Timeless Twine to create the frame.  I decided to give it to one of my cousins who is going through some tough times.  I thought it would be nice to include an inspirational "picture" for her (with the idea she can add a photo of her own later).  This stamp from Unity Stamp Company was PERFECT.  I underlined "Big Hugs" in Black Diamond Stickles and used Firefly Stickles to glue the twine around the opening of the frame.  Here's a close-up:
