I bought this frame from the Target $1 section back in February with the sole intention of altering it. As I was looking through the kit, I also had this photo of my family that I had printed the wrong size for a recent layout that's posted below and well it just all came together. This will sit here on my scrap desk to inspire me!
The $1 frame:
I cut the middle out with an xacto knife and it was ready to be adhered to the frame. I attempted to mod podge the front of the frame but it didn't stick very well so I whipped out my i-bond glue gun and it did it's magic without being lumpy like glue guns can do sometimes!
I started with the little houses and then I fringe cut some grass and rolled it with my petal roller, which worked perfectly. I fussy cut several flowers and 2 dogs to represent our pups, who are not pictured. Did you notice the two little love birds that I perched in the tree? I added the "Home" banner, some twine, a flower to resemble the sun and that adorable little cloud, that I trimmed with white pen.
I like how it turned out. What do you think? Make sure to stop by the Scrapbook Circle blog today to see some other ideas that the design team has whipped up.
