Pink Your Life Whisper Blog Hop Finale

Happy Friday everyone! I'm so glad you stopped by today because I am wrapping up the week with a grand finale post for the Pink Your Life blog hop. 

There are prizes for our hop and not your usual comment to win! We love to know that you see us across the online community and maybe even where you'd like to see our projects posted. All the details for the contest are on the Stampendous blog today

Be sure to stop by all the other designer's post and give them a quick comment, we really do love to hear from all of you!


Now for my project today. You may have already spotted this mixed media frame on the Stampendous website or even from a post over at the Pink Your Life blog, but this project was created for the January 2017 Stampendous catalog!
I had far too much fun creating this frame. From the stenciled background to the popped up watercolor Whisper Friends, it was always growing and evolving into a special day piece.
