Sew Many Challenges #14- Anything Goes

It's Friday, yay, the end of the week is here! Plus, it's also time for a new challenge at Sew Many Challenges! The theme this week is anything goes. The sponsor this week is Bugaboo stamps and the winner will receive 7 digi images of their choice from the Bugaboo shop...WOW, can you believe that! Thank You, Bugaboo!
Without further adu`, here is my project

I've had this frame from Michaels laying around for forever, and, what better time then now to utilize it! I knew what image I wanted to use for the frame, but had no clue what I was gonna do about paper, so I put the Baseball Bear kit(shown below) to work! Everything(including the background paper...don't you love what you can do with digis) on this frame was made using the Baseball Bear set from the march release at Sew Many Cards.

Here is a close-up of the bear...isn't he just adorable! I love this set even more now! I've never made my own paper before, but this was pretty fun! Incase you're wondering, I shrunk those bats down to about 1"x1 1/2" and just placed them randomly in a new 8 1/2" x 11" template. I printed it out in black and white and colored them ALL with my copics...that took a while. I think I need to figure out how to color well with my program, but at least this got the job done.

The bear, bats, and diamond were also re sized to fit my needs. So, other than that, a lot of coloring and that's about it. In the end I think I've got a great little frame for my boys' picture. Hope you have enjoyed my project, don't forget to see what the rest of the DT has made. It's Freebie Friday today as well, so be sure to stop by Sew Many Challenges to get that!

WOW!!! this is fabulous! Your coloring was well worth the time you put into it. The frame is perfect for the photo. Your paper came out perfect! I never thought of making my own background paper with digis, thank you so much for the idea.
