A blog about my paper crafts and how I "try" to save money so that I can do more of what I love!

I decided to make a gift for my friend Penny, who is a new grandma of a beautiful baby girl, Ariana. I took that 13 opening frame that I got from Goodwill (which I didn't take a good before shot of) and transform it into a beautiful frame to remember Ariana's 1st year. The cost was only $1.99 for the frame, and I only used things from my stash.
This shows the frame in the background. Just a plastic scalloped frame.
Distress Ink Pumice Stone
Anna Griffin Papers (all three coordinated nicely)
Banner pieces (mine were printed from Gecko Galz B is for Banners collage sheet)
I wanted to keep this simple because it will be filled with beautiful pictures of Ariana. I am entering into the Banners Challenge at Gecko Galz, which is where I printed the banners out from.
Sorry for the messy background. I really need to set an area to take pictures of my work, something cute with doilies or jars of cute stuff. But I need to clean and organize a space for that first!
Have you found anything wonderful at the local thrift stores?? Leave a comment and let us know!
