Framed Dry Erase Board

Here is a fun project.  I think most of us have frames laying around that we don't use anymore.  Many of us also have lots of Cute paper laying around!! Combine the two and you come up with  a fun and cute Dry Erase Frame!!                                   

I used some cute October Afternoon paper.   The left corner says " a Beautiful day" and the right corner says "NOTES".  The bottom left corner has a cute pic of my kiddos!!
