magnetic picture frame

So I made a magnetic picture frame for the tiddly inks challenge - anything but a card!!!
I hope you all like it!!

here's how I made the magnetic picture frame:

1) I cut a Bazzill dark brown heavy-cardstock into 4x4 squares 
2) I used an exacto knife to cut out a frame inside one of the squares, that's large enough for the photo to be seen through.
3) using my sookwang double sided tape, I attached a piece of clear acetate on top of the rectangular hole I cut out. (this will prevent my photo from falling out of the rectangular hole, as well as, protect my photo from dust/dirt)
4) I placed foam squares on top of the clear acetate and around the rectangular hole, 
(NOTE: as you can see, I didn't adhere any foam squares on the top of the rectangle,
because that's where I'm going to slide my photo into the frame)

 5) then I peeled the backing off my foam squares and adhered my two 4x4 squares together 
(the foam squares will hold my photo in the proper place)
6) after adhering the 2 sides together, you can slip the photo inside the  magnetic picture frame
7) glue a piece of magnet behind the frame

- I used this magnetic adhesive sheet from PROMAG 
to turn this ordinary frame into a magnetic picture frame

here's how the magnetic picture frame looks like from the back
(do you see the little magnetic strip on the top of the 4x4 square cardstock...?)

 and here's the final result

8:02 minutes

So I tried this challenge where card makers are supposed to make a card in less than 10 minutes!!!
WHAT??? I seriously take a long time to create cards and this was a challenge for me!
I mean it takes me longer than 10 minutes to JUST colour ONE image and I have to make a card???
well this is what I came up with... and it took me 8:02 minutes! I didn't pre-cut any of my card stock, so it took me a longer time than it should if I did.
anyways... I hope you all like it... it's definitely clean and simple... LOL
