Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, and I'm the first stop when hopping from East Coast to West Coast. If you came from Janet's Blog then you are in the right place! 

For my project I wanted to create something other than a card, which seems to be what I usually choose.  I had a stash of wooden picture frames from Michael's that had been sitting around since my daughter's craft party for her birthday.  I decided that I would cover it.  I used the flower pattern from the Documented Paper collection (x7234b) and the Documented wooded Titles (Z4171).  I wanted to create a title that would fit the photo of my children.  So using my craft knife I cut the word today, making 2 words, to and day.  This allowed me to create my title, Love to Smile.  I used Memories Bonding Glue to adhere the paper to the wooden frame, using my bone folder to smooth all the air bubbles out.  I then used some sand paper to smooth the edges around the frame.

  1. This is such a great idea - and the floral paper is a perfect covering for the frame with the photo of your darling kids. Beautiful :)

  2. Awesome way to use the wood embellishments! & great picture too!
