Default Layouts using big chunky frames

Can you link me up to some layouts using the big chunky frames as kind of the central focus of the layout? I love the look of layouts using cool frames but don't ever do them myself. I'm wanting to change that but need some inspiration. I've looked in the gallery but I'm not having much luck. Thanks!

I don't use them often myself, but when I do, I usually layer them behind the photo and rotate it a bit, like this:

Apparently I'm really bad at using frames.. .. This is the.only.one. in my entire SSD gallery that's more than just a thin and simple white frame offset from the photo.. Looks like I know what my next personal challenge is.. Thanks for all the awesome inspiration in this thread!

I love chunky frames but I agree they can be hard to use sometimes. I usually only use them on smaller photos.














And here's one where I used it behind the photo:

I realized, while looking through my gallery, that I use chunky frames quite a bit! Here are a few of my pages where I've used them:

Lots of gorgeousness! Thanks so much ladies for all of your help. I'm currently working on mine. Hopefully it will turn out half as nice as yours.
