Shabby Chic Framed Art

Hello, crafters and friends. I have decided that come what may I am going to have a shabby chic front room (as my pocket will allow) it's going to take time and money so it will be a slow process. However I can start by making some art for the walls can't I? This is a box frame that started off life in a charity shop brown with some dried flowers in it (wish I had taken a photo.) Any way I stripped it sanded it and painted it. It's since been sat there looking at me. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, and then I had an idea and so here it is and I hope you like it.

I have to say a BIG thank you to the The Graphic Fairy I have used a few images from her blog (so many freebies you have to go and see) here you can see receipts, perfume bottle labels, post cards etc all from the lovely fairy. I have printed them off and aged the papers so they look old with DIs. The lady images I am not so sure where they come from, the one in the corner says ACF not sure who that is, the other has nothing on that photo to let me know. If you know do let me know and I can give credit because they are really pretty and very useful.

The beautiful DP is from Making Memories the 'Je t'doreor' collection oh so lovely, I used this so many time as back ground to photos I was taking of tags etc I finally had to use it (so glad I did) 

There are some yummy things of Tim's in there too (new things lush ;0) The broken doll I can't remember what there called but DON'T throw away the packaging I made some wax versions as well so I have a supply with out keep buying them (how cool?) not as much detail as the original (original in the frame) but not a bad substitute ;0) Well this is my post I hope you like it, let me know what you think I always value your opinions. Love Dawn xx

This is lovely.
Really need to know, where did you get the Frozen Charlotte from? I've tried E-bay and cannot source them at all and at a loss where to get my hands on them. Great if you can help me out.
Your room will look wonderful when complete.
Wishes and have a great weekend.
