"Baby, it's cold outside"...

... [que music, scene from the movie 'Elf'] ... love that movie. I don't know why, but the best line: "Smiling... smiling's my favorite" :) Yes, I am a dork, but I am sitting next to the sliding glass door and my legs are freakin' popsicles.

That being said, I am going to try to make this as quick as possible so that I can fix a hot cup of orange-spice chai tea and go snuggle in bed with the babies (my favorite).
I picked up this wooden photo holder from JoAnn's for $10. It was painted white and the letters were robin's egg blue, hot pink, and purple... uh, eeewww. But, for $10 I knew I could fix it!

Paper: Lilly Anna SWIC
Other: misc. ribbons, buttons are MM, pink rhinestone, white Scraper's Floss, glue dots, PVA glue, sanding block & nail file

No stamps! Whatup w/that? Well, I decided to go minimal with this one, so that the future photos would take center stage :)
By the way... if there are any other 80's buffs out there, I think you know what song was playing in my head the entire time I was working on this project! ('Oh my god, Becky'...). Cindy, YOU know what I'm talkin'bout.

What do you think?

Very cute! I had to LOL when I read your post about the movie "Elf." We quote lines from the movie all the time--including my 5 yr. old son. He's stuck on, "I like to whisper too." at the moment. GREAT movie! TFS!
