I jumped on the frame bandwagon! This took a lot of time, but was fun to do- only 4 more to make now! Sorry for the bad pic, I have the world's worst digital camera (although that will change after x-mas...thanks to Santa!)

Thanks for the nice responses... I'm so glad you like it! I purchased the frame at Michaels- it was 50% off, so I paid about $10 for it. The mat I made using bravo burgundy paper and I lightly brushed it with Pearl Ex to give it a bit of a shimmer (which you can't see in my crappy picture).
I tried to paint the mat that came with the frame (which was originally white) with bravo burg. ink refill/pearl ex like the SS instructions state, but it dried so dark that it didn't match anymore and looked kinda yucky. So, I traced the mat onto BB paper and used that. HTH!
