My Creative Time's 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~DAY 1

Hello to all MCT friends!! I cannot believe Christmas is just around the corner! Emma, at MCT will be hosting the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS blog hop..So if your stuck on what to get your loved ones, please hop along for the next 12 days! Our design team members will be posting a project on their blog for the next 12 days. You won't want to miss this fun filled hop!! If you came from Liz's blog, your are in the right place. Here is the line up if you get lost along the way..

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me..this cute upcycled frame I made using a binder clip! I love this picture of my mommy and me and thought this would be a great gift for a co-worker in the office. The best part, you can change the picture!! All I did was cover the clip with designer paper, used one of Emma's beautiful stamps and cut it into a banner..Fast and simple gift, right?  It's not so festive but I am going to make a few of these as gifts..Best part is they can be displayed all year round! Have an awesome day and don't forget to leave a comment!
