A Little Something...



When I was in Walmart last week (buying kitty litter and PullUps) I bought this picture frame! It's almost impossible for me to just get what I need and get out! It was incredibly cheap, under $5 I believe.
My original intention was to put a picture of each of my three daughters and scrap the extra framed area with "Our Girls" or "The Chickens 2007." ;)
Wednesday night, I was looking at the frame and thinking about what patterned paper scraps I could use...well this paper with the flowers was left over from a single page layout I did last year, and it seemed to be a good choice! I decided to cut out a few flowers the same way I had on the scrapbook page and using ModPodge, I adhered them to the outside of the frame. Then I began searching through recent pictures and could not find what I wanted...

SOLUTION: After work yesterday I sat them down one by one and snapped their pictures. Why not??? It took several takes to get one for each girl, but by golly we did it! ;)
I converted the images to black and white to print on my printer, but I guess it was too much for my pitiful printer. The last pic printed in a sepia tone, not because I planned it that way, but because I am now OUT of black ink - OOPS! I think I like the sepia tone though, and
I will probably reprint all three pictures in sepia once I get a new toner cartridge. The photos are layered on cardstock, direct to paper craft ink and more paper incorporated. I even did a little stamping. Ended up with {LIVE} big instead of "My Chickens," LOL!!! but anything works!!!
