Looking for the easiest way to spruce up your walls for the season? Take a page from my sister's book (or should I say, "magazine") and find a few summer-centric pages, cut to fit the frames you have on hand. While these three frames are identical, I also like the idea of using different sized, mis-matchy frames you already have to create a scene. Although summer will be the theme that ties them together, you could also focus on one color or summer-y foods to make the connections.
Calendar Pages - we employed this on our Chicago wall in the hallway with some black and white shots from the early 1900s. A great way to keep great images or photography on hand long after the year is over. As another example, in college I had an Elvis Presley calendar of black and white images of the King. After the year was through, I kept the 4 images that featured him playing different instruments and put those up in a display.

Infarrantly Creative way back when - frame your game board and attach packages of the pieces and playing material to the back of the frame so the game is usable. Keeping it in the frame will help protect the board from spills and more. Of course, you could also render the game unplayable by gluing words onto your scrabble board that mean something to you or using them as backgrounds for your photos. Picture your family photos on a Life background, Candyland to showcase a recent trip to the fair or a Hersheys Factory tour or pie-shaped photos on a Trivial Pursuit board to celebrate a graduation.
