PARTY ON, Ryder!!!

 So our 1st Grandson turn 1 on the 23rd and the party was at our house.  I wanted to do something special to recap his first year of life, so I decided to do a picture for every month of his first year and do a picture 'wall'.

Remember these frames from here?  I got them for all for $2.00...this is where it started.

I set them all on a board outside to get a coat of paint.

 The backs are black...thought that's what I wanted...but changed my mind to brown...went better the sign I made.

These had been sitting in someone's garage and they were the glass got a cleaning!!

I made 'month' signs on the computer and then glued them to handmade paper.

I glued the signs to another piece of scrapbook paper (the same paper I made the sign with)

Then I just used regualr tape to tape them to the frames.  I was going to hot glue them on, but then figured I would use tape and then I could use the frames again for something else.

 See how cute they turned out...

Not as cute as Ryder....

 It was a fun way to go down 'memory lane' of the past year...

Supplies & cost of pictures - $7
Remembering each month of Ryder's life and smiling at each picture = Pricele$$
