Trendy Twine GD~ Memo Board + GIVEAWAY!!

Morning Bloggers!!
I am so super excited to share my project with you today!!
I was asked by Lesley of
to be a Guest Designer today and of course I JUMPED at the opportunity!!!
This month Trendy Twine is showcasing the beautiful
So for my project I wanted to make something that I can display in my home 
as well as fit into this months Challenge at Trendy Twine~ 
which is to create a 
project using red, white and blue 
 Trendy Twine :)
So instead of making a patriotic project
I made a cute summer 
Memo Board~
a place I can show off our summer adventures, photo's and mementos.
My inspiration for this???
The two colors of twine together made me think of a 
~postage stamp
and since we just got home from celebrating the 4th down at our family cottage I thought this would be perfect!!
I started off with a picture frame that I picked up at the dollar store
removed the backing and hot glued Berry and Blue Berry Twine  in no specific pattern across the back.
Once all the glue had set, I replaced the glass backing back on
(this is not necessary but I wanted to give my frame more stability because I will be displaying it on a stand)

Here is a close~up of the tags 
I have been looking at this washi tape sitting in my drawer for weeks now and
when I pulled them out again and placed them up against the twine....well it was a match made in heaven!
So what do you think??
I have yet to print out pictures but as soon as I do I will add them to my board.
The best thing about this project,
besides being so super easy to make
It can be made to fit any time of the year, embellished any way and would make a GREAT holiday gift!!

Now the super sweet Lesley
has very kindly allowed me to offer one lucky friend
