I thought that a garage sale barn picture was so cool.  When I got home & opened it up, the "photo" turned out to be a cheap calendar page!  So I guess the .25 was spent on the frame and sage green matting.  That's still a good deal.  Check out what I made. . .

I painted the negative space in a vinyl cut out on my Cricut.  The cartridge is called Winter Frolic. 

 It needed some dimension, so I put on two buttons. I also added strips of scrapbooking paper around the matting.  This lovely paper is cream gingham from Authentique.  The distressing is pretty neat!

  1. What a savvy shopper you are! Anything for 25cents is great, but your cool re-purpose is amazing! See, sometimes it takes a little disappointment to make us think outside the box.
    I love it, and thank you for sharing with us at "What's It Wednesdays". Hope you link up again next week!
