Framed Notes: Dry Erase Board

I just have to share this fabulous idea with you! While browsing Splitcoaststampers.com, I found the awesome idea to create a dry erase board out of a picture frame!
Here's my version:

I found the 8" x 9" frame on the clearance rack at Target for less than $4! It was a little chipped up, so I sanded the edges to give it a little rustic look and used a sharpie marker to fill in the bigger chips. The paper I used is Juntos from the Celebrando Creatividad (Spanish Supplement) catalog--I just love the colors of this paper! The flowers are from the Inspired by Nature set (stamped in Always Artichoke). "NOTES" is cut out of chipboard and designer paper with the Serif Essentials dies and the Big Shot die cut machine. The dry erase marker is tied on with Always Artichoke 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon. It's a very easy project--wouldn't it make a great gift? This one happens to be a gift for myself... :)

I just found out your post through Hope's blog entry. I need to tell that I've seen a few dry erase boards with other materials and just the other day found a great deal in photo frames and bought 2 X $4 with this purpose in mind. It is so really nice to see others have done it! TFS!
