Family Frame

I haven't had a lot of time for crafting lately so I've had to keep my projects short and sweet. This week I stole a few quiet moments to create a centerpiece for our family photo gallery.

I've seen several signs/collage frames that would look lovely there, but their price tag was less lovely so I dug through my frame stash and created this...

Love in our family flows strong and deep,
leaving us special memories to treasure and keep

...for free (now that's a lovely price)

I typed up the quote and fussed with the size and font until I was happy with it. After it was printed I arranged the text on the back of the frame and secured it with a little tape. The I broke out my trusty paint pens (one thick and one thin) and traced the quote on the glass. Easy Peasy!

Gotta love a project that is low on cost and difficulty and high on impact
