Starry Trees Doodle Frame {printable} & a GIVEAWAY!

I wanted to say thank you so much for all of the sweet words about the tree graphics I posted yesterday--your words really made my day!! I feel so lucky to have such kind bloggy friends...you guys have always been so supportive when I have tried something new.

And you are always so understanding when I'm on some kind of new whim--and for that I am very grateful!

This morning, I practiced a bit more with graphics. My main goal right now is to make some frames--I can't get enough frames lately!! Here's my first attempt at a sort of frame, just in time for the holidays!


If you would like to download and use this frame, I would be absolutely over the moon about it!! If not, I'm just happy you're here reading my blog anyhow!

On a semi-side note...
I've learned a little trick with frames (nothing earth-shattering, but I'll share just in case!). It's really easy to set a frame to its fullest size in Powerpoint. All you have to do is choose Format, then Slide Background. Under the Picture menu, you can navigate to your border, then just click Apply.



When it's time to print, the border will print as full-size as possible, without going over your page margins.

So, back to the frame...if you'd like to use it, all I ask is to please credit Ladybug's Teacher Files--thanks!!

In other news...I am so excited to have stopped by Farley's blog at Oh Boy Fourth Grade to share in the 12 Days of Christmas giveaways! I am giving away a premade blog template (actually two, since someone is going to get to win EVERY prize on the last day!!). If you'd like to read more about the giveaway, please be sure to stop by Farley's fantastic blog! :)

And finally, here is the file for the Starry Trees Doodle Frame...
