Picture This Collage

I loved this idea from The Brassy Apple. So I had to make my own. Plus, I am totally in the "pregnancy=nesting" phase and am going crazy w/ "Home Beautification" ☺
The letter "p" -for our last name, is a cardboard letter from JoAnn's painted black with paper modge-podged on the top. Frames were purchased at Target; The yellow sign (which I think is a little too bright) was from a scrap of wood in the garage; which was just painted with added vinyl lettering. Scrapbook papers came from my stash and I did purchase a few sheets. B/W photos of family added in.
This one is the in the bathroom. Sign was $7 at Home Goods; Frame from Target; Papers from my stash; and added family photos in B/W.

This one I already had this frame so the cost was basically nothing! I even printed the photos with our printer (which I can replace w/ better quality later.)

You can find instructions on how to make this at The Brassy Apple by clicking here.

Very cute! I'm right there with you on the nesting thing. I've started to enter into the final clean everything and keep it that way because the baby might be here soon stage.

And I'm oh so jealous you have a Home Goods near you - I love that place!

I love your idea of putting paper in some of the frame openings. I always have 2 or even 3 pictures, but coming up with 12 good ones is tricky! The shot of color is very fresh looking.
