Week of Giveaways!

Here's for day two of the week of giveaways!!
I'm super excited for you gouys to meet Holly.
She's a great new blog friend I've made through the blog-o-sphere ;)

Take it away Holly!!
It's Holly here from Eight Six Eleven.  
First and foremost, I'd like to wish the always gorgeous Ali a very happy birthday week!  
I love that Ali is celebrating her birthday week with some cool giveaways for all her readers.

I started my blog, Eight Six Eleven, in August of this year and I'm addicted!
I love sharing my thoughts, creativity and photography.
I began blogging because I was beginning a new chapter in my life.
One that included a husband, a house and dogs.
I thought blogging would be the perfect way to document all of the crazy adventures
that are sure to follow since my husband and I tied the knot.
And not only have I been able to share this with the world,
but I've also gained a group of supportive and lovely readers.

While my blog consists of a variety of topics, 
one thing you may notice is my love of DIY, re-purposing and crafting.  
That is why I decided to make one of my favorite crafts for Ali's giveaway. 
I love framing words and sayings.  
Such a simple thought yet such a powerful meaning. 

For the giveaway, I have made one 5" x 7" frame with the words "love the life you live" in vinyl. 
I fancied the frame up by adding three felt flowers,
complete with rhinestones and studs in the center.  
I hope this little reminder can give the lucky winner some big inspiration!

Isn't it amazing!?
I fell in love with the frame when she first sent it to me!
