A Couple of Challenges

Hi Crafty Friends! 

How's your week going?  Mine is good.  I was finally able to do some crafting.  My boys got sick last weekend and are finally feeling better now.  I found a couple of challenges that I thought would be fun to participate in.  Here is the frame I made for my hubby. 

I bought this frame from Michael's for $1.00.  I painted the whole frame with a white acrylic paint.  Once the paint was dry,I used the frame to cut my paper out and glued it to the frame.  I used the chestnut roan Chalk inks to ink the edges of the frame.  I cut out the "BBQ man" and BBQ from the Block Party Cricut  Lite Cartridge.  I also put some pop dots behind the BBQ but it is hard to tell in the picture. 

The face on the "BBQ Man" is from the Peachy Keen Retro Paper Doll Face Assortment.   I just love the look on his face.  The Happy Father's Day is from Joy's Life Holiday Occasion's Stamp set

This stamp set is from My Thoughts Exactly Grillin' n' Chillin'  stamp set.  The "BBQ Man" is on an Action wobble.  Looks like he had a little too much to drink, he's a little tipsy.  Haha.  

Here he is in action.  Maybe he did have a little too much to drink.  :)  I had to trim my Action wobble to fit under "BBQ Man".  This was also my last Action Wobble, time to buy some more.  I am having so much fun adding them to my projects. 

Don't forget to stop on by Pink by Design tomorrow.  There will be another new challenge to participate in.  I hope you will join us in the challenge. 

**I'm entering my frame in the following challenges.**
