Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and excited to get back to crafting! Diane here from http://happyscrapperdiane.blogspot.com sharing a project and celebrating my birthday with you. This is something you can make for next Christmas. I am a lover of thrift stores and found this old frame for 50 cents with a terrible picture in it but knew I could do something with it. I tried painting the frame, but it looked horrible so I thought of using paper and modge podging it. I am pleased with the results. I used the digital image from Teresa Collins Christmas Collage and used the negative piece which was probably a little easier thank trying to glue all the positives back in the same order! lol This was a large 10 x 13 size frame so I made the main cut as large as I could fit in. Below the pictures are the cartridges and cuts I used. I was pleased how it turned out and next year will place it on the hutch.
