LESSology challenge 8 ~ Frame of Life

A new challenge at LESSology starts now!!!


decorate an old frame or fashion one out of cardboard.... we want to see your frames! 

Here's my DT project for this challenge


an old frame I pick up from thrift store for a dollar, since it doesn't have glass, I glue a few pieces of wooden stick I bought from Michael's


spray it with white paint....


and then I added a little crackle paint for that shabby look... love it!



those little banner pennants are bits and pieces of scraps on my craft table..




I hope you hop over to LESSology and play along
Our fabulous sponsor this week is Really Reasonable Ribbon. The prize pack is a ribbon and baker's twine pack worth $15!



and look at this sneak of our DT project, don't you just want to run over to LESSology right now to look at all these beautiful creation!!!
