BBTB2 - Cricut - LOVE this kid - picture frame

I brought a plain $1 or so wood frame at Walmart and created something a little out of my comfort zone for a friend who just became a grandma.  I used my Cricut Explore to make a stencil for the wording "Love this kid" using the "Retro Script" font.  The embellishments are ones that I had in my stash for the last several years - a die cut gears (only used a portion) and various buttons and ephemera.  The photo that went inside just made the whole project perfect - a baby boy wrapped in his new light blue blanket that had his name on it.  I so love it when a project comes together.  This is one that I won't be able to replicate again, it's one of a kind.

Join us for this week's challenge over at Bitten By the Bug2, where our theme is Valentine/Love - anything goes.  I am sure you have created something that you would love to share that you have created for a loved one.  Link it up to BBTB2 HERE.
