Summer of 2009 my family and I took our first trip to New York. I totally loved it. Maybe because there's tons of shopping, it's always busy, the lights are beautiful at night, we saw Wicked (the musical), and I was able to go to Serendipity 3 (restaurant they filmed my favorite movie, Serendipity)! Finally, after the 100 times I'd seen the movie, I got to actually go...and eat the most yummy dessert, too!
I was looking through all my New York pictures and realized I had a lot of fun ones, but also a ton of architectural pictures. So, I decided to put two frames together with just New York pictures. Here's how I did it:
I started with this picture frame (I was given two of the same pictures by my Aunt who said I could do whatever I wanted to the frames) and since it didn't go with the things I already have, I completely took apart the frame and got rid of the picture inside. The frames were dark brown, so I painted them black to match better.
Next, I covered the cardboard backing piece of the frame with some cute paper I found at Aaron Brothers. Then I cut a smaller square of black poster board to lay inside, so the decorative paper acts like a matting.
Then, I glued the pictures on the black poster board and finished it off by cutting some of the butterflies out of the decorative paper for some added detail. After that, I resembled the frames, put the glass back in and called it a done deal!
They should be cute on my wall in my new bedroom. Stay tuned: I move back to Seattle in just 2 weeks, so I'll be sure to put pictures up of our apartment.
Here's some of my other favorite pictures from New York!
Mom and me in the filming location of When Harry Met Sally.
Despite the heigh difference, this is my little brother.
And this post wouldn't be complete without a picture of me in front of the world's biggest Juicy Couture store (:
