FRAMES, BURLAP AND DROP CLOTH....

I picked some frames up a few weeks ago at IKEA and this is what I came up with.......

I'm loving these...


I took some drop cloth, hot glued it to the cardboard frame and then stamped the word "family" in brown...I put this one back in with the glass...





With this one, I took the glass off, wrapped the board with burlap and then hot glued a sand dollar that our youngest daughter collected down the shore...did I mention that she is the "QUEEN"  sea shell, beach glass, sand dollar collector!!!  We think it's because she is closest to the ground...haha







this is just a sampling of some of her treasures....she has tons!!!!!!



all of that came from this.....have a great day & thanks for stopping by....

  1. Love this!! I did this not too long ago in my sitting room (added the burlap and hot glued a nest with robins' eggs). Such fun texture and the possibilities are endless! Love the "family" frame and the shells. *Becca*

  9. Hey friend, I continue to be amazed at how simple elements like burlap, a rubber stamp or just paint, & a sand dollar can be put together to create such lovelies. I also really liked the vignette you created for a charity donation -- it's a different & really fun way to make a donation. May have to borrow that idea the next time I'm asked to do something like that. Have a great day!

  27. Under the image list you will see a lot of ways that keyloggers
    are more useful as well as a trial version. Is your PC/laptop password the only safeguard option available with you, which
    can easily be installed in less than five minutes and runs maintenance free.
    They have lots of ways to do that but the way i am going with email delivery method.
