Family Matters

Well I've been busy...watching the Olympics!!  I LOVE the Olympics!  Who else has been watching?  It's actually a little weird because I don't really watch any other sports or anything...but when the Olympics roll around I watch, I cheer, and I am a real fan.

Well I wanted to pop in and share a fun project with you.  I really love how it turned out.  :)


I received several frames from a neighbor who asked if I wanted them.  I have good neighbors.  :)  So I painted one white.

Then I took some "family" letters from Say It With Letters and covered them with patterned papers from Fancy Pants Designs.  I used their Time For Spring collection.  Painted the sides of the letters brown (spilling over the front of course, that's how I like it).  Then I arranged the letters in a fun, over-lapping way over the frame.  Added some flowers and the chipboard letters saying "matters", and I was done!  :)

I picture it hanging in the hall, surrounded by family photos.

Here's a couple close up's:


It was a little tricky in spots since the letters were only connected to each other (and some in only a very small part) so I added a few pins in the back to help keep them together.  You can see that above the i.



Anyways...what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping in today!!!
I hope you are having a wonderful day!

And enjoy the Olympics!  :)
