Well, Ken, it's a bit hard to know how much work you are willing to do,
but this works:

Click on your graphic to select it.
Copy it (Ctrl+C)
Now create a new Custom document, with dimensions the same as your frame
-- if you have the Properties palette showing, you can read the values
from it to enter into the New Document dialog.
After creating the new document, paste (Ctrl+V) - you will need to align
the graphic with X-Pos, Y-Pos of 0,0.

Now you have your graphic-sized document, which you can save as an
image, export to PDF, whatever you want to do.
