Almost Free Wall Art

While cruising the dollar bins at Michael's today (almost as good as cruising the dollar bins at Target) I ran across a cool chipboard phrase - imagine.  Kate is in a very imaginative phase right now. She spent all morning talking to her imaginary friend Jenny on my old cell phone.  Jenny couldn't come to Michael's with us because she had to go to "The Bunny Show", and then to her grandparents.  Except Jenny forgot that her grandpa died.  I kid you not, this all came out of Kate's mouth in the span of about 15 minutes.  So her other imaginary friend Jessica came to the store with us, and I had to buckle her in using the middle seat belt and had to offer her a snack, etc.

Anyway, back to the post at hand.  I knew I wanted to do something with the imagine word, so I snagged it - hey, it was only $1.  At home, I found the perfect scrapbook paper background that will match the new kitchen colors (we are doing a mini kitchen makeover, more to come on that) which are creamy yellow, red and black.  So I painted the word black and adhered it to the scrapbook paper (which I cut to fit a 8x10 frame I had on hand).

Total out of pocket cost now - $1.  Score.  You could create this yourself for approximately $7 if you didn't already have the scrapbook paper and frame on hand.

I think I'm going to link this up with Today's Creative Blog's "Get Your Craft On".  You can find lots more cool ideas through the link below...
