Altering and recycling a Chalkboard frame

I found this chalkboard frame at a charity shop for $1.  Originally the chalkboard had just the tropical scene on it..it is like a sticker scene.

The first thing i did was to crochet packing twine to make a border.  Then i die cut some shells and greenery. Added a few bud stems and die cut the "sand" for under Amelia's feet.  I made my bow and added a charm.  I have totally "altered" this chalkboard and plan to hang it up at the lake.
