May Monthly Craft Challenge – picture frame

Welcome to our fourth monthly craft challenge.  When Wanda and I discussed and picked out our items for the challenges I had a totally different idea for my frame.  I thought yeah, I am all over this.  Then I received Valentines in the mail from my cousin.  They were the ones we used to give out when we were kids at school and I was beyond touched.  I knew right away I had to display them. They were bright, colorful and most important when I looked at them they made me happy and I thought of her.  So drumroll please………

frame I used a plain wooden frame I picked up at the dollar store.

Wanda over at A Wandafulthing had a different take on her frame craft.  She picked up the frame at a thrift store.  She removed the picture replacing it with pretty scrapbooking paper she already had.  Painted the frame cream and currently using it as a grocery list.
