Sales and French Paper

I hit the sales bins at Michael's the other day. I scored big! I bought little cement cherubs for .50 cents. Wooden plaques, beautiful stickers, notecards and the like- from .50-1.00.

This plaque:


became this plaque. I covered it with this French inspired scrapbook paper, which I bought for .25 cents per piece (probably got 50-75 % off).


Any ideas as to what else I should put on it? Joy? Enter? Welcome?
I bought 4, so it gives me some room to experiment. This week Michael's is have a sale- 50% off one item each day. I'm going to try to get a shelving unit for my 12x12 paper.

Lee,

What a find and what an idea. This has come out so cute. Make a summer themed one next maybe with on eof your clever mermaids. That would be great! Miss you.

Bonjour Lee! I have had no time to post comments even though I have been visiting your blog regularly! Yes! You should raise a few chicken! They are a little joy in our life, part of our pet menagerie and picture perfect in the garden! They each lay an egg a day for a few years, then simply retire. The rule here is: We do not eat our chicken!!! Your kids would love to have chicken around! Take care, LuLu
