What's Behind Door Number One?

I found this neat picture frame at a resale shop in Eagle ID. For several months now I have pondered over what I could do with it. So here is how I came up with this piece:
1.My husband has been asking people this probability theory question that involves a Monty Hall style scenario were you have to pick what is behind door #1, door #2 or door #3. Most people get it wrong.
2. I found the magazine clippings: "She may be a bag of trouble" and the quote "Live Hard Regret Nothing."
3. I decided to make a collage with the quote "Live Hard Regret Nothing" and put it in the frame and said this would be my new motto for my next 50 years as in the past I have always regretted almost every choice I seem to make. (Maybe that is why I am so indecisive and have found it easier to live with other people's choices)
4. I decided the frame needed something else, but didn't know sat like this for another couple months. Then I went to Art and Soul in Portland and came back with all these great game pieces and such and the final idea was born.
