Today is Monday. Actually, it's "Make and Share Monday." And that means that, for awhile today, I get to set aside time to be crafty!! That's sometimes a hard thing to do when you have four children. But today, I set aside time with my oldest daughter to be crafty and make a gift.

My cousin is having her baby shower this coming Sunday. We needed to make a nice baby gift in a relatively short amount of time. So off we went to our local store to purchase a few supplies. We started off with a wooden picture frame, a few pre-made animal shapes, and some paint. Britches (aka Big Sister) wanted to make this picture frame to be a jungle theme.

First, Britches painted the picture frame a light green, we came back and painted another coat of light green, and then she and I both worked on some vines around the sides.

Now time to add our pre-made animals to round out our jungle theme, and I wrote the new baby's name on the bottom. And there you have it.

This is our finished product. For our first "Make and Share Monday," we made this adorable baby picture frame.

Look for another crafty something next Monday from Britches and myself. And in the meantime, be sure to click on the picture at the top to find out all the details of this fun crafty idea! Participation is so easy, and Britches and I had a lot of fun being crafty together! And a big thanks to Katie and Kristy for putting this together.
