Here we are at Week 4 of the blog hop! We have a VeRy fun "die" to work with this week, it is called the Frame with Stand die, by Eileen Hull. I decided to make a Victorian Picture Frame. I am in love with the Victorian Era and especially the hats and patterns! So, I found a hat pattern and made it into a picture silhoulette!
