I love going to GOODWILL on 50% off Saturdays!!
It was there I was able to find this:

It was only $2.50 – woo hoo!(and I had all the other supplies lying around).

I knew I could make something decent from it, but I wasn’t sure what.
I decided to make a little Baby Boy Chalkboard for my good friend’s upcoming Shower.

I found out the baby’s room colors and went from there….

4. Use chipboard letters as stencils by flipping them backwards and tracing onto scrapbook paper. Cut letters out and distress with paint or stamp pad if desired.

5. Add more paper if desired. For this page, I actually decided to stitch a zig-zag around the edges. Hot glue or mod podge on.

8. Print a baby pic, and embellish as desired. I added a crown made from scrapbook paper and stamped on it “BABY”. I found the images at GETTY IMAGES. They have a ton of cute and vintage baby pics (boys & girls). Here are a few of my favs:
