Deep Ocean Challenges DT - Anything But Square!

 Good evening!  Did you all enjoy looking at all the crafty spaces on our last Deep Ocean Challenge??  I know I did, I love having a nosy at how others store all their craft items for some ideas!  Our new challenge for this fortnight is "Anything but square".  I loved this challenge as it gave me the perfect opportunity to finish  the gorgeous printers tray my gorgeous friend Kylie sent me that I'd given a base coat to an not finished!
 I wrapped the entire frame with some Tim Holtz tissue tape - this was perfect for getting into all the little nooks and crannies and the frame was covered in no time at all!  The papers are from Pink Paislee's London Market paper pad and to enhance my photos I have added some plaster embellishments from Panduro Hobby along with some flowers.  The gorgeous butterfly is from Pink Paislee too and the little shell and acorn top are some things the children collected that I wanted to keep.
 The Love ticket is, of course, by Tim Holtz too.
 The large heart gem was saved from a chocolate box and the gorgeous chenille/chord trim is from my stash.
 The stunning wings are from Panduro Hobby too and the beautiful rolled rose is from The Ribbon Girl and are my favourite new embellishment!
 The gorgeous cabachon is also from The Ribbon Girl.  I forgot to take a photo of the back but I have added a stand using Tim Holtz small easel die so that the picture frame stands of it's own accord on the mantlepiece - a shabby chic addition to my sitting room :).
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Deep Ocean Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the teams stunning creations - you won't be disappointed!  Thanks for looking! x
