Dry Erase Board

Today is the day that we all get together for Art Day. The best part is that we get to find out who our Secret Sister was...the big reveal! Or maybe the best part is the creating we will be doing. Or else the other best part is just plain getting together with my "sista's." Or is the best part the food? You see, I love it all...

Here is what I created the other day for my Secret Sister. Anna, I hope you have enjoyed all your little gifties as much as I have enjoyed making them for you. Do you know how hard it is to keep a secret-and my post office did nothing to help that out either! (That's a whole separate story that I won't go into here :) Stay tuned and I will show you what I receive from my Secret Sister.

Please excuse the glare, but the photo I took without the flash just did not do it justice. As always, click on the picture to see a close up if you want to.This dry erase board just started out as an ordinary picture frame (get them on sale cheap wherever you can find them-I think this one was only about $2.00 at Menard's). You just make your 'layout' for inside whatever you want it to be (I used our Notebook papers in mine). Put it in the frame and include a dry erase marker (I attached mine with a little bit of self-stick velcro). That's all there is to it. So easy and you can personalize them to fit anyone. Let me know if you make one of your own and send me a picture or a link to a picture so that I can see it. I love to see everyone else's artwork, too!

Happy Scrappin'
