An idea!

I love this idea that Little Green Notebook featured - taking a picture of something small and sentimental and then blowing it up big and framing it! My head is spinning with ideas =)

I would love to blow up a picture of a makeup palette and hang it in my powder room (ahem, closet). Colors inspire me! I am a gambling woman though, so the blown up card is definitely appealing too!
