October Afternoon Altered Memo Board

I'm sharing one of my October Afternoon projects I made a while back, made using this picture frame/memo board I found on clearance at Michael's:
I simply painted and distressed the fame, then covered the left half (the memo board part) using Farm Fresh patterned papers and Mod Podge.
To make the magnets, I covered the Farm Fresh cardstock stickers in Glossy Accents, then adhered a magnet to the back. They curled and subsequently cracked quite a bit--if I was doing this again, I would use chipboard instead of coardstock.
I made the fence and frame around the word 'messages' out of distressed and crackled Popsicle sticks, and used craft glue to hold them together.
Inside the frames, I layered the Farmfresh journaling cards and patterned paper under my pictures. It's easy to change out the pictures--guess a photo-op trip to the farm is in order!
And there you have it, a cute piece to display pictures and use as a memo board!
