Frame Me!!! :)

Hi everyone! 

Our latest challenge is live over at LESSology and this time we want to see a Beautiful Scenery, using an upcycled item!! :) 

Create a scene on your project! :) 

I took a different twist on this challenge! :) 


We have vaulted ceilings in our home, and the canvas I made shortly after moving in here, was kind of boring to me :)   So I wanted to create a new "SCENE" on my wall!! 


I started with these little round frames I found at a yard sale a few months ago ...



  

Then I had some papers from Little Yellow Bicycle, American Crafts and Basic Grey that I got on clearance at my LSS and bought some various sized frames at the Dollar Store ... add in some baskets that I also found at the Dollar Store ... and I have created a new "SCENE" for my living room wall!! :) 

I picked several photos from our life that I wanted to showcase! 





And here is what I did with the frames from the yard sale ... I added a piece of paper to the back of them, and then took some vintage Scrabble Tiles and spelled out various "Family" words to showcase them amongst the photos... 















And as the years ... (and photos!!) go on ... I can add more to the wall! :) 


Here is what our winner will win from Studio Calico --




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
