guest blogging

I'm a guest blogger over at Ali Edward's blog.
I may or may not have jumped up and down when she wanted me to share my storytelling frames.

This is such a good solution to my Avery's dance competition memorabilia...and I'm always lookin' for an excuse to go to IKEA.

Seriously, this is absolutely the coolest wall art groupings I have ever seen. I will totally be creating my own family memory wall soon. This beats the usual yearly family photo on the wall that I've started! Love this, thanks for taking the time to post this!

Amy said...

Getting ready to purchase some shadow boxes and create something new for my entry wall at home!! You Rock!!!

emily said...

Love this!

Dawn said...

Completely adore this! I had that same MS magazine and had started a "Scrapbox" about 2 weeks before I got the magazine. Then the ideas just came pouring out! We need a place to buy those boxes in bulk for a little cheaper price, IMO! ; )

Jenn said...

love this idea! do you remember the name of the ikea frames?

Jen Johner said...

so so so SO cool! My fave is the horses.. my girl would so totally be head over heals for that! Lovely!!!! I say you should come decorate my house!! ;) Such an inspiring arrangement! I love it all!

Holly Thatcher said...

I also saw this idea in MS Living and I wondered if I could find a less expensive solution. The scrapboxes Darcy used were $25 each. I loved your post on Ali's blog. (I only read 3 scrapbookers blogs-yours, Becky's , & Ali's. Can I also just say that Creating Keepsakes is not he same without all you guys!) Do you know the names of the IKEA frames you used because it seems like you have several sizes here? Do you know how much you spent? Were the frames white to begin with or did you paint them? I really want to do this idea on my huge empty family room wall and any more advice/help you could give would be greatly appreciated!

Jen said...

Cool idea!

Amber Zimmerman said...

I am giddy about this! I have a few shadowboxes that sit unused because I never knew what to do with them. . .now I can't wait to fill them up! My girls will love this! Thanks for sharing. :-)

Would love to know what color that turquoise light is painted. I have been looking high and low!

Heidi Y said...

Love your scrap-wall!! I also had to ask - where did you get that super-cute chandelier?? I love this room! I've been wanting to get one for my dd's room!

Kelley said...

I saw the post on Ali's blog and was wondering...where did you get those frames?

Collin said...

Wait...why is my Jungle Book record hanging on the wall?? I've been looking for that forever!

maribeth said...

i love it! i can't wait to do something similar. thanks for sharing!

carrie said...

Great idea!!! Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

those look amazing!

Kirsten said...

So awesome - the wall stuff and you guest blogging. Good day all around

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Here I am, having come from Ali Edward's blog. That was truly a labor of love! I am sure it was well worth doing watching the faces of your kids.

Kami said...

how cool Liz! I loved this idea too, and I love what you did!

I would jump for joy too! so fun!

ps. Are you guys leaving somewhere for Spring Break? If not, we should get together!

Yvette Adams said...

I totally love these! What an awesome idea!

Sheila Cruz said...

Love this idea for my girls' rooms. But i can only hang one or two shadow boxes on the walls. Why? Because living in Puerto Rico we use cement to built our homes! It's very hard to drill holes & once you made them they become permanent fixtures- not a pretty sight! {LOL}

Yoli said...

What a wonderful idea! Thanks Elizabeth . . . thanks Martha for the inspiration!

Carri Powers said...

I love your story wall and also loved the wall in your booth at cha from the pictures that you posted. I'd love to see more detailed photos of those framed layouts, too. More Dear Lizzy layouts would be great in general. I have almost the entire collection and so far, it's too pretty to cut!!!

karen said...

I was just about to do something similiar in my scraproom.I LOVED the sunglasses idea.If only i had kept my daughters sunglasses 15 years ago.
What issue of the mag was it.As I may search for it here in the UK.Or does the contributor have a blog?

Mary Beth @ Live. Laugh. Make Something said...

Well, yeah! They are so delightful! Congrats!

suzyplant said...

These boxes are so super duper cooooooool! xoxo PS - why is my word verification "comating"???

rachaelwood said...

yep, in love with these. Seriously thinking I need to go buy some shadow box frames next time HL has them half off.

Lori said...

Love, love, love this! Oh, how I wish there was an IKEA here. I think I may need a road trip!

Rebekah Williams said...

Can I have your autograph, please?

Michelle said...

Oh, cool! :) Amazing project/guest blog! I'm just soaking up the inspiration! :)

Robin said...

Love the frames - my daughter started college last fall - so hopefully I can complete a few of these for her before she comes home for the summer. What is the name of the frame and are they from IKEA? Thanks so much for a great idea. I too saw the article in MS but yours are more down to earth for all of us - that is a compliment.
Happy Spring!

procrastinationmama said...

Hey!

Great post! I have posted some of the pics credited to you on my blog. hope you don't mind! The Pinkalicious frame was my favourite as it is my little girls favourite book too. Very freaky when i saw it as i don't know anyone else with this book in england (my hubby bought it back form a trip stateside!)
