Frame it- Upcycle

My fascination with old discarded CDs is taking me down more creative paths lately.  Recently, I put together a bridal shower decoration using old CDs and one of my Cricut cartridges.  They came out so lovely.  So I'm following the same path but this time I created a photo frame with this upcycled material.  I took four CDs and adhered them together using my Crop-a-dile, large eyelets and some ribbon.  I centered my precious granddaughter's photo in the middle and used some beading to highlight it.  Then I went wild with fabric flowers and beads.  The center of the white daisies is a button.  I also used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch to add some additional accent.  Then the sparkling green floral is from a spray I have in my stash.  At the top and bottom corners I used rub-ons that spell "granddaughter" and
"memories"  Do you like to upcycle/recycle discarded items?  Show us your stuff.  Tell me what you think of my upcycled frame.
