framed initial art

I can't believe it!  I actually did a project start to finish today.  It's a minor one compared to the other projects that are only half complete.  [every time I start a new one I get an ugly look from my husband] So here it is.  

I wish I had taken a before picture of the frame. It was really dark and already had this board attached to the back of it.  I painted it all this off white color and sanded the edges to give it the antique look. Then I modge podged the scrapbook paper to the 'h'. I used a tutorial from craftoholics anonymous found here to make the rosettes.  They were sooooo easy. Then I hot glued them to the frame, and VIOLA!

I had the paint, the frame, [thrift store find $1.48], already had the scrapbook piece of paper, modge podge $6 and I already owned the "H". Lovely initial frame for $7.50!  

I'm not sure I didn't hang it too high...I'll have to look it over for a few days. We just got new SS appliances and a new backsplash, will post pics soon!

My little froggy

Sunday Funday

We had a great day Sunday. Parker was dedicated Sunday and then Jennifer, my SIL, and my nephews (aka "the boys") met us at my parent's house for a pool party and watermelon. It rained most of the day but who cares we were in the pool. P can swim like a frog, its too funny, will post a video once I get it from Jennifer. OBTW Parker has slept all night for a week! Go P. Happy 9 months Parker...Have a great week, there will be lots of studying this week, BOO!

It's a start
