Home Decor for The Scrap Room

Oh dear...what a Monday! We started off the morning with my youngest son running in the living room and falling on the end table, resulting in about a 2-inch straight cut on his forehead. I thought I might need to take him to the ER for some stitches, but after a call to my mom (who works at the hospital and talked to a nurse), it was decided that I could just put some peroxide on the wound and then close it with some Liquid Bandaid and some Steri-Strips. Ugh. No mama likes to see blood from her kid! :(

Anyway, got the head wound under control....now I'm just praying it doesn't leave a big scar on my beautiful boy's face.

Moving along....

I'm going to share a couple of home decor projects I made this month using the June kit from The Scrap Room. First up is an altered picture frame. I bought the wooden frame for $1 at JoAnn's and covered it with some of the paper from the June kit. I then made a felt flower to add to the bottom corner. I printed off a "Keep Calm & Carry On" print and put it in the frame. Easy peasy!

Next up is a little wooden star I created. I got the star at Michael's and Mod Podged some patterned papers on it. Soooo easy, and I like the way it turned out!

Be watching The Scrap Room blog for a more detailed post on how to create the altered picture frame.

Thanks for taking a look....and remember: I LOVE comments! hehehe

hope your little one is feeling better. Our little guy (4 at the time) fell inside a bank and hit his head on desk and had to get 8 stitches. He was such a trooper! Love these cute little decorative projects!

I know your heart must have been racing. On my dd 5th birthday 15 minutes before guest were to arrive my ds split his chin on the patio umbrella stand. I did the same thing your mom recommended. But I felt so bad, using Neosporin later minimized the scaring you can barely tell!
