Monday's Christmas Card Week 2

Happy Monday!! This morning was chilly..I didn't want to get out from under the covers!! I almost poured another cup of coffee just to warm my hands!! It's too early to turn the heat on right?? Fall is definitely in the air so I first want to share with you a 'fall' themed project.

I have been picture crazy over the last few all started when I purchased some frames that I liked. Well...that led to painting the walls a fresh coat of paint...then finding the right photos for the frames. I have this one frame in the basement that was given to me over a year ago that has even been hung on the wall...but still has that 'generic' family smiling back at me! I feel like maybe I should name them and officially 'welcome' them to the family!!

But you know when you need to have just the right photo?? Well...I printed a TON to choose from and most have now been filled. This is one I had I left over of my oldest son Tyler. He is now 17 and a senior this year...AAAHHH! (This photos was taken 4 years ago)

Here is what I have created with it:
It started off as a 5x7 with a border, I trimmed it down to fit a 5x7 mat of Night of Navy CS and added it to a 8x8 scrapbook page. Then placed it here:

I found the scrapbook stand at my local craft store, it holds 8x8 pages. Love it!!!
