Creative Charms Deal of the Month... and I'M AN AUNT!

When I found out that the Creative Charms September Deal of the Month would have a boy option or a girl option, I just knew I wanted to make a gift for my brother and his wife, who were expecting their first baby, a little girl!  I decided on this altered photo frame.  (The photo in the frame is NOT my brand new niece, who just arrived on Saturday!  For purposes of photographing the project, I put a photo of my oldest son into the frame, for "display purposes" only, lol!)

There is so much fun stuff in this Deal of the Month!  I used some of the fun felt shapes from the "It's a Girl" felt pack, and I just love the fun brads that are also included.  I layered two of the brads along with buttons, die-cut paper and felt, to make these flower centers:

Along with the fun baby goodies in the Deal of the Month, I also used Pink Gradient Gems, a sparkled flower (which I replaced the center of with a pink gem), the fun polka dot ribbon, and the Gradient Pearls.

I also made a card to go with the gift, using another of the It's a Girl brads, more ribbon and a few more gradient gems. The bear from PTI's Baby Button Bits is colored with Copics.  The sentiment is from All About You.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects... thanks for taking a peek!
