I've been FRAMED!

So, I totally know that is one of the lamest titles ever.
I try to come up with catchy titles for my posts.
You know that you look at other posts cause the title intrigues you.
So-did I intrigue you?

OK-why the post name.
My Grandma has been gone for a little over 11 years.
I loved her,no, I ADORED her!
Pretty sure I was her favorite grand child! (my family is so going to roll their eyes at that!)

A month or so ago-I framed some of her recipes that were written in her hand. I loved it and so does everyone who sees it.  If you want to see-click here.
Anyway, my Mom asked me to make this little picture for her friends birthday.
My mom and her have been friends their whole lives.
My Grandma was also best friends with my moms friends mom. (have I totally confused you know)

In 1964-church was split up into blocks of time during the week.
Well-instead of heading to church-they headed to the golf course.
No one would know-they thought.
That was until one of them hit a whole in one and it was published in the paper.
HA!
So-this little creation is dedicated to my Grandma.

It all started with this:

This is the score sheet. It is written in my Grandma's hand.
I took this copy-and cut it up.
I also enlarged the newspaper article.
I backed them both with some paper and then inked them.

I found some fun paper and attached it to the previous ugly pictures mat.
Super easy-just used my scrapbook tape runner.
After all that was done I stuck it under the frame and then glued tees directly to the glass with E600.
(That is the most Awesome run on sentance!)

So...what do you think?
I think that this little idea would be so great for Mothers day or Fathers day.
This could be done with anything.
Old school projects of your kids. Maybe you have vacation momentos.
I love this because you don't need to have a shadow box frame to get the dimmensional look.


Sorry about the glare.
It's late and I am a freak when it comes to photo skills.

Something like this would be cute in a office.
Maybe have your kids draw pics of Dad-frame them up and then add his favorite hobby items to the glass.
Now that I think about it, I am so going to do that for my husband for Fathers Day.
He loves to fish-so some fun fishing lures and such would be darling!

Ok-I'm crazy-telling myself that my own ideas are fabulous!
Yea-still love me!
Please!
Happy Thursday!

  3. Great idea, I love how you save keepsakes by framing them. It is such a great idea, because instead of throwing them in a box or a drawer never to be seen again you can alway see them and remember them. Very creative.

  12. Your grandmother sounds like what my grandmother would have called "a pip"! I'll bet she was a lot of fun to hang out with ~ how funny that she "cut" church to go golfing. I love that! : ) Great framed project to remember that day, too.
