Happiness in Family Life Picture Grouping

I had this urgent need to get a few pictures up(a picture of Christ, President Monson, and a temple) and some quotes and couldn't quite decide how I wanted to do it but I knew I didn't want to spend a lot of money (like none) on new picture frames.  After looking through all my picture frames I have propped up against the wall in my room...I decided that was a none of them would work with what I was envisioning so I started thinking about what I could use and those silver trays at the dollar store popped into my head.  We most often see them around blogging land on top of candlesticks being used for serving trays.  They were going to work out perfectly different shapes, ornate around the edges...perfect they worked with my vision of what I wanted and they were a dollar and I could handle that.  

After a couple of coats of black paint and trimmed down pictures that I adhered with double sided tape this is what I have:


After I had the pictures done it was time to find a couple of quotes to do with home and family and as I was researching it out they came to me quite quickly.

The 2 quotes are: Happiness in Family Life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ from The Family: A Proclamation to the World(to read it in its entirty) and the second one "establish a  house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God" Doctorine and Covenants 88:119

I love how it turned out and thank you to my visiting teacher for the Family Home Evening Board to anchor the whole grouping.
