Framed Snowmen

Hi Friends! Happy Saturday to you all! Remember yesterday I said that I went on an adventure in my garage looking through containers and discovering all these cool stuff that I've had purchased moons ago and recently re-discovered. Well, a few months ago, I went to a garage sale and found a package of snowflake stuff and a bunch of photo frames. The photo frames were used but I bought them for 10 cents each. Ten cents! You can't beat that! Whenever I alter something, I don't like to buy new stuff to alter. I mean it's sort of pointless to cover up something that is new, right?

Anyway. . .I sort of stuffed the garage sale items that I bought in a container with the intention of altering them one day. Well, that day never came until now. I decided to create a Christmas scenery and insert it into the frame. Ooooh, how fun! They make for great Christmas home decor! Yay! I'm going to make a bunch of them and hang them up around the house during the Holidays!

I've decided to use a different format to my blog and center my photos instead of having them staggered. What do you think? Do you think I should center the photos on my blog or do you like them staggered left and right? Let me know. . .your opinion counts!

Okay. . . just a little info on my project. I stamped the image, colored them, cut them out then adhered them to the designer paper. I found a designer paper that had a Christmas tree pattern on the paper so I thought it would make for a perfect scenery for my snowmen.

Do you see the snowflakes? Well, I found them at the garage sale. . .again, dirt cheap. It appears that they are faux snowflake made out of shredded plastic but I'm glad I bought it because it sure is coming handy now.

Anyway. . .I'm going to make a few more of these altered frames. I have 3 more to alter! Yay! Be prepared to see more of these!! I hope y'all have a wonderful Saturday!!

What a neat idea!! Very nice!
I like the photos centered, sometimes when you stagger them they overlap.

You created a beautiful piece of artwork for your home, Maria. I'm looking forward to seeing the other ones you make.

What a beautiful but fun idea. It would be a great emergency gift also for unexpected Christmas gifts. I always like having a small stash of them.
