Home Decor

I completed this project a little while ago but it took me about a year to get all of the pieces together.  I had this idea for my entry way and I love how it all came together.   
 
 
It basically started with the mirror and then I decided I wanted family portraits but rather than just putting them in a frame I wanted to frame a scrapbooking layout. 
 
 
I wasn't sure what I was going to do in the space above the scrapbook frames initially but thought about plaque mounting our hand prints.   Then I found out you couldn't plaque mount more than one piece of paper so that wasn't going to work.  I ended up finding these frames on clearance at Michael's and they filled the space nicely.  There was quite a bit of trial and error to decide how to make the hand prints and Mitchell ended up with a purple hand for a couple of days.  I finally found that just inking our hands with CTMH ink worked perfectly

 
I found the saying and was planning on cutting it with my Cricut but chickened out because it was so big.  I have a friend who owns a sign company and he cut it for me.  I'm very happy with the final result and would love to hear your comments.
