  1. Hi!
    Just wanted you to know I tried. Couldn’t get my image from the blog or even after I saved it to my files. Guess I’m not very “techy”. It was fun creating my frame, though. I might have to have it made anyway. Thanks for letting me know about that site.

  2. Thanks for letting us know, Becky! We changed this from a link-up to just leaving a comment since this has turned out to be trickier than we thought. We’ll count your comment above as your entry! 🙂

  3. I love the “Personal Message Frame” but I had it say “Children are a gift from the Lord” because they are, and I love the reminder to be thankful for my children. Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. I created a frame that said, “If you think my hands are full…you should see my heart.” I am going to put a picture of my boys in it. People always comment when they see me out with all four of my little boys. They say, “Boy, you’ve got your hands full!” It used to hurt my feelings, but now I just say, “If you think my hands are full…you should see my heart.” It always makes them smile (and me too!)
    Here is the link:
    I don’t know if it will work though.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I can’t get mine to link here either. ?
    Sometimes I get it “right” when trying to upload links. Somedays I simply can’t get it to work. BUT God is good anyway. 🙂
    I chose Jeremiah 29:11 for our family’s
    framed quote. That has been our favorite verse since losing Dad. God gives us hope.

  6. I couldn’t get mine to work, either. I chose the red, snowflake frame. I love Christmas, and I really liked the frame. My text was about Jesus. Thanks for the chance to design it. :0)

  7. I chose style 1101.
    The text is my favorite Bible verse and was used during our wedding ceremony. The date of our wedding is in pink numbers below. Chocolate brown and pink were our main wedding colors.
    I had wanted to incorporate the verse somehow into our wedding favors, but never had the chance. It’d be lovely to get this frame created! So glad you shared this with us. If I don’t win, hopefully I’ll be able to get one made anyway!

  8. I designed a frame for my great niece. It has her name (Bella), along with the meaning (Beautiful) and the Scripture reference I picked out for her (1 Peter 3:3-4). I wanted to type out the verse but it would only let me type a few words…so I settled for the reference. I still like it a lot. It will be a very special gift because of the story behind Bella’s birth. She is definitely beautiful and a precious gift from God! Thank you for this opportunity.

  9. I have three beautiful daughters, so I designed the “Girls Will be Girls” frame with each of their names. I love it!!! Thank you for the blessing of this opportunity!

  10. Their frames are just gorgeous. I think I’d have mine say “If you want to be happy…BE”. I know that only God can give true joy, but there are definitely times when I choose to be grumpy.
    If not that quote, perhaps something “romantical” for a picture of the sweetheart & I. *wink*

  11. I made one with the word Receive on it. And some thoughts that flowed out. Thanks for getting me to stop and be creative!

  12. I picked Photo Frame (Style 1107) and wrote “Together in the Sunshine – San Clemente”
    I love this giveaway!

  13. FUNI chose the quote square with my definition of HALLELUJAH, using song lyrics.
    You’re the God of free and faithful Grace.
    You’re the One who gladly took my place.
    And I will sing your praise, because you came.
    When I sing Hallelujah, I know my life won’t come undone. Fear and death, you’ve overcome, and I can face the day.
    I sing Halle, Hallelujah.
    I sing Halle, Hallelujah.
    I sing Halle, Hallelujah.

  14. I chose photo frame style 1097 with apple green an mocha text. I put “you make my heart sing” for the plain text and “family” for the script text.

  15. I created the “Special Event Frame.” I wrote Trust and Obey at the top and my sister’s last name and the year 2010. I will give this to her if I win. She and her hubby are getting their first “real” house together this Fall and this would be a great way to commemorate the special event for them!

  16. I chose the “Just Us Girls” frame, and personalized it with Friends Together, Colleen and Kathryn, June, 2011. A long time friend and I are planning a vacation to the Northwest next summer, just the two of us. We’ve both had a challenging year (divorce and M.S. diagnosis) and have been a huge support to eachother and want to treat ourselves with this trip.

  17. I’ve not chosen a plaque as I just need to get my feelings out of me. It’s been six months since I lost my job because another manager didn’t like me and I upset her tea party. I worked for the Board of Directors and Executive Director. Upon being let go, I attended an employment workshop but because the two facilitators thought my resume was great had me assist others in the employment workshop. Low and behold my resume wasn’t selling my skills or me. So I worked through a transitional coach to come up with a “branding” resume. I’ve since gone through a number of pre-screenings and interviews but still have not secured a position. I have really great skills and I know this because I did my boss’s job and made him look as good as I could. Now I’m on an emotional roller coaster because I can’t seem to connect with someone who really cares or either I’m not conveying my true self.
    I know that God is suppose to be in control and knows exactly what will happen, but this is more than a test of patience. I don’t see, read or hear of any signs from Him. I feel as though he has deserted me.
    My husband has complete faith but, of course, everyone loves my husband. I’m just so tired. The women’s scripture group that I participate in has been praying for me for two years, and the couples’ group, for the past year. I really feel He has deserted me.
    How can I possibly have faith?
