Frame Me Photo

I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made-It.  I can't believe it's already another Monday.  Where is my summer going?!?

I've been meaning to make the First Day of School picture frame since I first saw it on Pinterest several months ago.  I loved the idea, but just couldn't find the right picture frame.  And all the ones I found were either super expensive or really bulky.  I finally found an unfinished frame at Michaels for $7 and my search was over.  I knew I didn't want it to be too large or heavy, so this was the perfect solution.  A little paint, some adorable clipart lettering from Hilary at Rockin' Teacher Materials , a heart, and I was done!  You really must check out the lettering-it is SUPER cute! I had to have Greysen help with the pic.  He loves second grade like his mama :)

I decided to change up the wording just a tad.  I put I heart second grade, instead of first day of second grade.  I'm thinking of possibly using the same frame again at the end of the year.  
Here is the original picture from Pinterest: (it wasn't linked to a web page)

Head on over to link up:)

  8. Your frame looks great! I saw that same one on Pinterest and loved it.

  9. I like your frame! My frame currently says First day in Pre-K but I think I like your words better and might have to see about changing it.


  10. That is SO CUTE! I love the idea, too. I've GOT to do this!! Thanks for commenting over at my blog! I love finding other Texas bloggers! :D This summer needs to slooooow down. ;) Oh, and I'm following you!


  11. I forgot to mention how PRECIOUS your son is! My little guy has big brown eyes, too. LOVE. :D

  12. Do you know where you got this and what it was called? I'm trying to find an affordable frame to do this, and I can't find anything!

  13. Hi Laura,
    I'm not exactly sure of the name of the frame, but I know I found it at Michaels. It wasn't expensive at all. They come in a natural color, so you can paint them yourself. They carry several different sizes. Hope that helps!
