Framing A Quote

There are a lot of cute ways to fill an empty frame. I like to layer scrapbook paper, decorate it with stickers and sparkles, and put one of my favorite quotes in it. In this post, I will show you step by step how to make and personalize a quote. Let's get started!

What you need:

A frame

Scrapbook paper

Stickers and sparkles

Glue

Pencil

Scissors

Your favorite quote(s)

Directions:
  1. First, take the glass out of your frame. Put the glass on your first piece of paper. Using your pencil, trace around the glass. Remove the glass and cut along the line you made.
  2. Center and glue a second paper onto the first paper. (Your second paper should be smaller than the first paper).
  3. Write your quote out on a separate piece paper or print it out. It will look better if it is on a solid colored paper.
  4. Center and glue your quote onto the second paper. Make sure the paper your quote is on is smaller than your scrapbook paper, so that the pretty designs frame the quote.
  5. Decorate your quote with stickers and sparkles.
  6. Put the glass back into the frame. Put your quote into the fame quote side down.
  7. Hang your quote on your wall and marvel at your work!

Bright Colors = Bright Mood

On a dark and down day, wear bright colors to change the mood. You can wear black with a bright shirt. For the girls who don't like brightest colors, if you mix gray and yellow, it comes out really good. A lot of the time if you mix yellow with anything it brightens things up, and it looks really good.

Also pink looks good with a lot of things. But, I do know a lot of girls who don't like pink because it's "Too girly!" Pink sometimes can be the best thing to an outfit, just to brighten things up. I love to wear pink because it really makes anything look good. Another color that is super pretty is Coral. Coral is not orange and is not pink, it's a mix. It is really in style right now. My personal opinion, is that coral goes with anything. 

A nice outfit that is really easy to put together, is a white long sleeved T-shirt; coral colored jeans; a jean jacket; for shoes it's really quite optional, but since to me it's more of a "Chilly outside" outfit, I usually wear boots. There you go, a nice, pretty outfit, that isn't over the top, or too worn out looking. And, you can mix these colors too!
