Here's something I revampt the other day.

Originally I had received this by winning a bridal shower game.  It's not that I didn't like the verse or look of it, it just wasn't something to go with my style or craft nook!

So, I did what any other self respecting crafter would do...make something new out of it!  I have scrapbook paper I bought just to make things look pretty.  I am so glad I bought it!  Here's the finished product:

I decided to leave the frame itself the same bronze-like color.  It's not too bad with the picture itself.  I found the tree somewhere on Google?  I will have to find it again.  The neat thing about the leaves is when I was cutting them out with a X-ACTO knife, they left their 'image' on the paper I was cutting from.  Meaning, I now have this neat looking paper with a design that looks best with white underneath it (pop-effect) and is ready to go for another project!  : )  Happy places!


  1. hoo hoo said the owl so far I'm liking these craft projects. Are you going to design a Christmas card this year? I hope you and Nick are doing well and have fun in Florida for Thanksgiving. Take care, Chris

  2. That looks great! It's always so nice to be able to recycle/repurpose something you already have into something fabulous.

  3. Hey Vivienne! Thanks for responding!
    I haven't given up on my blog yet, just I haven't really been posting my stuff I've done b/c my camera died (although I just got a new one!!! :D )
    I also don't know how to really go about getting it up and published, but seeing you commented really surprised me and I guess gave me some motivation!

  4. cool!...why have i not seen this before?

    lol, I have no idea? Maybe b/c it was when I was in Kentucky with a slow computer/technology, unorganized/unhappy in the state AND my phone didn't send pictures....yeah, that's about right, plus life's daily duties :D
