Motivate Me Monday...My Blake Poster

This is my new favorite thing.

(This lovely photo is from Dear Lillie.)

This beautiful chalkboard creation is from one of my favorite bloggers and shop owners,
Jennifer Holmes of Dear Lillie.

You can shop Dear Lillie and download this chalkboard print HERE.

I downloaded this print and enlarged it at Staples (Jennifer gives the details on how to do this on her site when you download the print.  Just click on the Dear Lillie link above.)

I switched out a print I had in this large 24x36 poster frame. There is a great tutorial on building the wood frame for this poster on the Dear Lillie site...I will get to that one day.  For now, I painted a black frame I had with some of my home made chalk paint in a creamy white and lightly distressed it.

The white looks great against the brick and goes well with the this!
I gave it a quick coat of a spray clear coat.

There is a story behind this chalkboard poster.

A story you must read.

A video tribute to a young boy you must watch.

I love my new chalkboard download from Dear Lillie.  What I love even more about it is that it has a story behind it, a beautiful story of a families' love one another and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I hope you all have a fabulous week!

Love & Junk~
