Not Your Everyday Memo Board!

I've seen an example or two of these fabulous dry erase memo boards, and this is my spin on it. This is so much more stylish than that white dry erase board or old fashioned cork. I used our Close To My Heart papers to match the color scheme in my kitchen. Paper was used from That's Amore, Life Delights and Notebook paper packs (1 piece from each).
This is just a regular 11 x 17 frame I got at AC Moore for 1/2 off. Instead of putting a picture inside, I "scrapbooked" the inside of it, and viola...done! Buy a dry erase marker, use ribbon or fibers like I did, tie it to the hanger on the back and when you're ready, write directly on the glass. When you want to erase it, just use a tissue or paper towel. Easy, inexpensive and decorative! Who wouldn't love one?
What a wonderful wedding or housewarming gift. Make one for that special college freshman going off on their own this fall. They'll think of you everytime they go to use it. Guaranteed their friends won't have one! :) If you make one, please share it with me. I'd love to see it.
