Name frames

This is the $5 frame I got at Wal-Mart on the after-summer clearance aisle.  I used scrapbook scraps and letters to fill in the picture areas for now.  I've never quite pulled off the Americana idea that I've had in my head for the boys so Nate gets it in his room to match his new Ralph Lauren plaid comforter.

I made this for Jake a few years ago for his room.  The e has slipped but I used scrapbook stickers, di-cut machine (at my church), paper cutters and scrapbook paper.  I got the frame 80% off in the Hobby Lobby clearance aisle for like $6.  That littlest star is him at bat.  Can ya'll imagine how hard it will be to paint over his Dinosaur walls to make it the UT athletics looking room he needs during his teen years??  I might shed a tear but they can barely remember loving dinos!  I gotta let them grow up, right. lol  I'll show ya'll the before and after when we get going on his room.

This was made by "Aunt Lori" a dear friend who is a crafting maven.  It was when Nate was into soccer.  Please excuse our dust bunnies.  Is it not cute?  It'll have a prominent spot in his room and those are his colors.  I love the way there are tags on the tags.  I'm gonna use that approach to make some clearance frames into a baby Tegan name frame for my cousin and a 50th anniversary gift for a friend at church.  Wouldn't it be cute to put tags with birthdate, weight...and for the anniv the date established.
