It's gorgeous Tia!!!! Truly!

It seems to disappear a bit on the wall but I also am not a fan of it being in the cubbie. I feel like it needs to be displayed standalone, on an easel, like a work of art, ya know. Is there any way you can rearrange things and place it on top of your storage unit?

Maybe a nice ornate frame if you didn't have the display space?

I agree it disappears on the wall. I like it in the cubby but I also like the idea of putting it on top of the cubby.

I really love it!

Thanks gals, an easel is a great idea but I don't have one:( I am also thinking it is lost on the wall now. I was thinking of maybe buying a large black shadowbox frame for it??? Not sure yet but I am happy with how it came out Smile

Sidenote... I LOVE my dh. We were at the grocery store together the other day. I walked past the magazines and said to myself '' oh they got it'' I was talking about the new creating keepsakes magazine. Then I told dh it's fine I won't get it cause I had been spending way too much money lately. Tyson was with us and asked if he could get something out of the gumball machine on the other side so dh told me he would meet me in the car. I checked out and then went to the car. On my seat was the magazine! Smile I was so happy that here he is this manly looking guy and he still went up and bought me my girly magazine when I was not looking:D just had to share

I put cardboard on the back and then used dbl stick tape and hung it to a sign I already had up on my wall. Now it is on my desk as I am trying to figure out where to put it.

I LOVE that LO! I would get a thinner black shadow box frame so the words pop and then hang it on the wall. Very creative! Also, you may want to start checking for online sales at Creative Keepsakes because I think I got a 2 year subscription from them for $24 last fall. A heck of a deal!

WOW! I know I need to get a subscription. I buy the magazine every month:eek: and scrapbook trends and they are now like 6 to 7 bucks per magazine. Thanks for reminding me Smile
