Two Today!

Good afternoon everyone, this is my entry for the TeddyBo Challenge - Anything But A Card.  I really struggled with this one as I usually only make cards.  In the end I decided to make a Photo Frame and a Door Hanger for a two year old.

I used one of the TeddyBo Number images, coloured with ProMarkers, these are really useful for children's birthday cards as you can colour them according to who they are for.  My Picture Frame is for a little boy, hence the blue, green and yellow colour scheme.

I paper-pieced the number two and the balloons using HOTP 'Citrus' papers and added some little strings to the balloons.

I also added some bunting cut from the same papers and joined together with string along with some extra balloons.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

One final photograph of the door hanger which I have decorated to match.

Image: TeddyBo Number Two
Papers:  HOTP ' Citrus' 
Card stock:  Core'dinations White Wash
Embellishments:  string from stash

Thanks for looking today, I hope you have a lovely weekend.
