This month's challenge to the designers is Frame It!  Put a frame on something.  I decided to put a frame on a frame to create a mini dry-erase board.  I purchased a frame at Ikea for $2.50 and glammed it up:

I created a Happy Frame following instructions from Els's Technique video - found here - using the Thinking About....Polinesia 12x12 paper.  Love the polkadots!  I created the flowers on the edge embellishment using the Color My Flowers clear stamps and coordinating dies.  I colored them with Copic markers:

YG11, YG13, G12, G14, BG02, BG05, B12, B14, Y13, Y15, R81, R83, Y26

The opening in the frame is 5"x7", so for the inside, I stamped the n I stamped the Circles Background stamp, and then moved the paper in my Tim Holtz stamp platform and stamped it again at the bottom.  It's a random enough pattern that it wasn't hard to continue it.  I then colored the circles with Copic markers:

YG00, B00, BG000, R00, Y00

Here's what it looks like with a note on it.  I plan to use it as my status board at work on my door.
