Summer Polka Dot Canvas

I am REALLY ready for Summer here in RAINY Oregon!  Today it seems like the rain will never stop.  At least it makes everything Green, right?

Remember this canvas I won from Blooming Words?
I love it, but it took me forever to figure out what to do with it!  Well, here is what I did:
First, I found all these cute little chipboard letters, flowers, hearts, mushrooms, etc. hidden in a drawer down in my craft room cave (the room that is supposed to be my 17 yr old daughter's!).  I laid them out on the canvas to see what they would look like.
Then, I found some adorable huge apple green ric rack in my ribbon stash.  I made a sweet little flower with it.  
Next, I glued on the chipboard letters, and ric rack flower.
I decided to add some of the green ric rack to the bottom.  I glued the edges and in the center.  I have some pictures I want to stick in there!
I just slipped the pictures under the ric rack.  Now I can switch out the pictures throughout the Summer!  Yay:)
Here's a close up. I also added a chipboard strawberry, flower and mushroom on the ric rack. 
Cute, huh?  I think it's a tad bit busy, but oh well, I'm a BUSY person:)
