Week 45 Allsorts challenge - "Rags to Riches"

Happy weekend everyone!
This week over at ALLSORTS it's Helene's first time to choose a challenge (it'll be mine soon!!!)
She has chosen a great theme -  "Rags to Riches"
For this you can recycle or alter an item.
I've got a photo from my Friend Anne's Hen weekend (just before we left for London)
It's been sitting on my kitchen bookcase waiting to be framed for ages - so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get something done about it!
xXx

Before
A bit plain

xXx

After
A bit more special
xXx
I had a difficult job taking a picture of the finished item as I kept getting a reflection from the glass.

I have used:
Cheap pine photo frame,
Daisy bucket papers,
swirl stamp,
Tim Holtz tag,
Chipboard letters & buttons from stash.
xXx
Thanks for looking and don't forget to pop over to allsorts to look at what
the rest of the team have come up with.
xXx
Have fun

Hi Fleur.

I love this frame. The colours are perfect and I love the chipboard letters. You did a grand job. Looks much better than a plain old frame. Well done.
