Framed

For a while now I have been wanting to display some maternity photos that my lovely friend, Megan took for me as well as some new born shots of Morgan that Evaly took for us. I wanted to put them together in a collage style frame, but I just couldn't find the right one. I don't know if you have this problem, but when you have specific pictures in mind you always find frames with way to many vertical or horizontal slots than you want. SO...I decided I would make my own frame. I went to Ikea and bought some cheap picture frames and glued them together (well I will be honest Kevin did most of the gluing. I picked out the frames, pictures and laid them out how I wanted.)  If you like this idea and want to try it yourself, everyone I have talked to said that Gorilla glue was really the only way to go. Every other wood glue would be too rubbery and expand too much. A word of caution though...ya know that old kindergarten saying "a dot is a lot"? well it definitely applies here. Anyway, here is a picture of the finished result.

It's not perfect, but I like it.
