Collage Frame...

Emma at "My Creative time with Emma" is having her "Throwback Thursday Challenge". Every Thursday she uses an old cricut cart and makes something AWESOME!!! she makes the cutest things!!! you have to check out her website!

The challenge for this week was to make a 3D item or altered item using an older cricut cart.... which is perfect for me because that's all I have lol!!! Anyway, I wanted to make collage frame or shadow box for my brother... so I am going to enter it in her challenge.

My Dad passed away in 2002 and he was a United States Navy veteran and my Brother got his flag in a pretty display case. After my Grandma died last July we got a huge box of our dad's stuff to go thru. It was so neat to see all his "old" navy pics and stuff. I immediately got the idea I wanted to do something for my brother so he could have some of the things hanging next to his Flag.

So here is what I came up with...

I used some awesome patriotic paper from Michael's, Calligraphy collection cricut cart, and some Navy stickers I found at Michael's as well.

I really hope my brother likes it!

Thanks for looking!!!

Love, Mel
