Valentine's Day Decor

I think Valentine's Day is one of my least favorite holidays to decorate for.  Not because I hate love or lack a significant other but because Valentine's Day comes up so fast.  I feel like I get all my Christmas decorations taken down, put up some winter/snow decorations and then next thing I know it is February.  I end up with only two week to get something up and it usually takes me two weeks to even get around to it.  

But not this year...
 We've had a Scrabble game sitting in our stack of games for years now and you want to know how many times we've played it...big fat ZERO!  So I figured, no one would mind if a few letters were missing!  I've seen these Scrabble Crossword pictures around. I took a couple different combinations I've seen and put them together.
This was just a normal 8x10 frame with a mat that is actually green turned backwards.  I hot glued the letters onto a piece of scrapbook paper and then put it inside the frame.  The original glass for the frame is in the back.  
With this frame I decided to add a little bit of wide ribbon.  I think it really helped the outcome. I think next time I'm not going to use shiny white paper as the back.  Maybe a plain pink?

Be sure to go to my Linky Parties Button at the top and see the different sites I've linked up too throughout the week!
