Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside ...

Hello everyone, Katina here with my first contribution to a Get Funky challenge! And what a great challenge Paula has set!
At the Seaside

I love the Funky Freebie Anice has designed this month, so I just had to use it for my share today. I'd been looking through some old holiday photos and decided to make a photo frame. The little girl in the photo is my eldest granddaughter, Molly.

To make the frame I printed the freebie onto white card and cut the striped panel to measure 5.5x5.5" and then cut a smaller square from the centre. This can be any size you choose. I used foam pads to attach it to a 6x6" piece of white card. I trimmed the photo to fit inside the aperture and then added the embellishments around the edge.

I cut a strip of card, scored and folded near the top and glued to the back of the frame so that it would stand up. I hope Molly likes it!

We'd love to see what you make this month but remember to be eligible for a prize you
If you don't have any Funky Hand products you can download this month's Funky Freebie here
Better still, why not browse the full range of Funky Hand products on the website here and treat yourself to something fab!!

I never realised how nerve wracking it would be writing on a blog other than my own! So now I've done it I'm going for a lie down, lol!!
My fellow Funkettes, who've made me very welcome (thank you!!) will be posting their amazing creations throughout the month, so don't forget to keep coming back to see what they've done.

I look forward to seeing what you make
