Dollar Store Challenge and Amy's Round Robin!!!!


DOLLAR STORE CHALLENGE!!!!! Join in at Life at Eventually Cottage...
The challenge is to search your local dollar store, or the dollar spots at your favorite store. Create a home decor item or a gift using only items from the spots I just mentioned, and supplies that you already have on hand. The total cost of the item that you create CANNOT exceed $5!!!
I started with this frame, it's about an 11x20. Everything else I had at home from other projects. This is what I came up with!.....

I love anything patriotic it makes me feel proud!

What a fun challenge!!! What is exciting too, is that the first person to comment on this post will receive the creation I made!!! WooHoo!!! It's a little pay it forward, stinkin' fun huh!?

******************************


I also thought I'd add this little inexpensive idea on to Amy's Round Robin! Be sure to go over and check out all the fun there!!!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!!!
