City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #58 *I've Been Framed*

Hi all! It is Cheryl back as hostess this week and I have some alarming news..."I've Been Framed"! Never fear...I've been framed in a good way and I hope you'll get framed this week, too, as you participate in our challenge. The challenge this week is simple...either alter an existing frame or use a frame somewhere in your project! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!

Week 58 ~ I've Been Framed

Guest Designer
I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Colleen Dietrich!!!

Here's a little about Colleen in her own words: When I was little, I loved making cards for my parents out of construction paper, stickers and crayons. In my early twenties, I bought a few stamps and ink pad and began making super-simple cards to sell at work. After that, other hobbies consumed me and stamping fell by the wayside. In October 2007, I dove head-first into the world of stamping and card-making once again, and on a bigger scale. I thought I might save money by making my own cards. Ha! At least this hobby is cheaper than therapy, and much more fun. J
My style varies from clean and simple to vintage, and somewhere in between. I am currently the Private Blend Designer for The Play Date Cafe Design Team. I also design for Mark's Finest Paper challenge blog. Being challenged each week - and blogging about it - has helped me grow significantly as an artist. I am so in love with this hobby, I can't even imagine another one taking its place!
