Can you stand to see more?

**Thanks to Jane at Finding Fabulous, Jen at Tatertots and Jello, and June at I will craft... for featuring my project!!**

Nope, not an episode of Clean House.  Sorry to disappoint. But same idea, sorta. 

Can you stand to see more subway art?  

I know it's all over the blogosphere but I LOVE it and just had to try it.  Especially when I found some rub ons (you know how much i love them) for $1 in the dollar section (duh) at Target.  As soon as I saw them I knew exactly what I was going to do. 

Here's what I came up with:

I cut out a 5" x 7" piece of scrapbook paper and then cut out each word and image and arranged them on the paper.  Once I was happy with the way it looked I took off the backing and rubbed each sticker one at a time. Super easy!

*EDIT* Want one of your own? I'm giving it away!

Here's a close up:

My words aren't perfectly straight.  Next time I might use a ruler, if one is close by :-) 
I had some left over rub ons and remembered that I had this little black frame. 

I love it!!! 
I made some more but have to get some frames first...stay tuned!
And I think I may look for a more interesting frame for the subway art or add some embellishments, not sure yet.
