Embellish Me Happy September Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am here today with the September Challenge for Embellish Me Happy!  This month we challenge you to DIY!  The possibilities are endless with this months challenge!  You can create your own embellishments, alter a frame, and so on.  Just have fun with it and Do It Yourself!  For my project I took a plain picture frame I picked up from the dollar bins at Michael's and altered it into a chalkboard Christmas frame.  I plan to set this in my kitchen and let the kids count down the days in December.  I will leave a piece of white chalk out for them to change the date everyday!  I used some Martha Stewart chalkboard paint and some washi tape I purchased from our sponsor this month SpiegelMom Scraps!  I also created a super cute poinsettia flower to add to my frame!

Here is a look at my altered frame for the September Embellish Me Happy Challenge!
I had so much fun with our challenge this month and I hope you find some time to join our DIY Challenge!  Please take a moment and head on over to our September Sponsor's amazing shop HERE!!  She has some fabulous product in her shop that you will absolutely love!  I want to send out a huge congrats to our August winner over at Embellish Me Happy!  Jackie completed 5 of the challenges and did an amazing job on all of them!  She was our randomly chosen winner!  Also congrats to Karen Ruiz for winning my blog candy for the Back to School Hop!!  Please email me at medga902@hotmail.com with your mailing info!  Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
