I stitched this up as a Christmas gift for a friend.
It's a line from the Martina McBride song, "This One's For the Girls," and it hits a little bit too close to home sometimes.

I just wrapped a normal mat for a picture frame with scrapbooking paper, decorated with some scrapbooking stickers and accented the frame with a little bit of ribbon/ric rac.

I'm pretty happy with the finished product.

You should totally try it.  I've done it for other pieces before, but this is my favorite result to date.
I've also had really good luck finding mats for frames at Dollar Tree.  They're often in weird colors, like yellow, but it doesn't matter because it gets covered up anyway.

I totally thought of your super awesome quote today when i heard bon jovi's "living on a prayer" on the radio today.  does that make me weird?!  seriously, that quote is super cool!
