Favorite Frame

I gotta say, I think this is my favorite frame of the bunch.  I love the washi. I love it so much I almost didn't want to use it on the frame.  Then I had such a hard time deciding which image to use, then what embellishments to use with it.  I wanted it to be perfect!

If you look really closely, you'll see that the washi has a subtle pattern to it.  It includes tiny cranes, hexagons, sakura, etc. all in a pale blue color.  This was a paper I got from the Paper Source in LA.  I had initially only bought one sheet, but after using a lot on one project during the Anniversary release, I decided to conserve... Luckily, I was able to replenish my stash when I went back to LA in October.  Yay!

To add interest, I added in a crystal flourish. I think its a Recollections brand, which I got from Michaels.  Finally, added some acrylic flowers that I bought from Etsy and also found some at Craft Supply in Honolulu.

Ended up coloring Miyoko's cupcake light pink.  Somehow I just can't imagine a blue cupcake!?  Weird yah, so even though the rest of the design has blues, I went with a light pink wrapper and cherry.

So in case you come to my craft fair and don't see this frame, it's cause I decided not to sell it!  I'm still debating...

How can I buy a frame like this from you?!?!?! I'm never home for craft fairs, maybe have a sakamoto craft fair on Oahu one day?!
