Picture Mat Make-over

This is our family picture, I've always used the white mat that came with the frame.  Just recently I realized how bad it looked with the rest of my frames on the wall.  I love the frame, and didn't want a bigger picture in it, so I decided to give the mat a make-over.

I used some leftover paper from my squares project, cut and glued it to the mat and voila!  Much better!! I also changed the color picture to black and white (since my other pics were all b/w).

This is the set-up on my wall.  I bought the 3 metal frames from Walmart several years ago, when my 3rd daughter was born I tried to find the same frames, but they no longer carry this exact frame.  So when we put up the pictures I decided to go a little more eclectic and put my oldest in a different frame since her pic was landscape. My parent's gave us the name pictures for Christmas.  I LOVE it! One day would like to find my own pics of all the letters so I could give them for gifts.  I think they're so adorable!
