It was important to me to give my niece something special for her birthday, something from the heart. She is a beautiful young lady, full of drive, ideas and love. She has set her goals and she will achieve them. And have I already said I wanted to give her something special?
Scrapbook paper + a picture frame of choice + a printed poem or saying + old jewelry + tacky glue = special present for my niece.
Find the perfect picture frame and take it apart. Find your fav scrapbook paper and cut to the size of the frame. Print your favorite poem and attach to the scrapbook paper by gluing or using sticky squares used in scrapbooking.

Look what you come up with. Don’t cha just love it?
