Frame it Up with H2H

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  This week’s challenge is all framed up. How would you interpret this challenge?

This challenge couldn't come at a better time.  We are raising two of our grandkids.  May I say that it has been a long time since I had sole care of a young child?  These kids came to us from a not so great environment and had not  been raised with rules, schedules or consistency.  So I decided that they each needed a behavior chart.  I pulled out some poster board and started drawing lines and quickly lost interest in all of this work.  Not to mention I would have to do this every couple of weeks for 2 kids - no way, Jose!

I happen to own two of the newest Close to My Heart frames and picked out the Designed Décor Black Frame on which to build my cute little, useful behavior chart.

Here is my behavior chart:

The first thing that you will notice is that I didn't call it a behavior chart.  It is called Keith's Rewards.  The kids' therapist wants me to be more positive and less negative.  Rewards sounds pretty positive to me.

I was delighted to see the weeks of the day stamp set in the CTMH Cricut Artbooking Collection.  SCORE!  I used the Dimensional elements banners from the collection as well.  The days of the week are stamped with Pacifica, Ruby and Outdoor Denim ink onto a piece of White Daisy Cardstock.  I left room so that Keith can place stickers on the days that he does what is listed on the left.  All of the behavior notes and the days of the week are held on with our Mini Clothes pins so that they are removable.  Yay!  No remaking of charts.  No drawing lines.  I can even scan and copy the days of the week papers if I don't want to stamp them.  Why I wouldn't want to stamp them is beyond me, but no problem, I have it covered!
I used these stamps sets:

The letters for Keith's name was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I used the Cricut Craft Room to widen the letters.  I cut the letters out of cereal boxes with the deep cutting blade.  Each letter has 3 layers of cereal box to make it sturdy, held together with out liquid glass.  The paper covering the letters is from the CTMH ProPlayer Paper Pack.
