Wedding Gift

One of our good friends got married this weekend in between rainstorms and power outages during what was probably some of the worst weather we've had in a while. And the wedding was outside! But, thankfully for them, the storm passed so that the ceremony and reception could take place with no further interruptions. I wanted to make them a personalized wedding gift, so I copied an idea from another friend (because I can't come up with original designs! I'm not creative, I'm just a good imitator!). Remember my faux painting project from the other day? Here's what it transformed into:

I really hope they like it! I think it's neutral enough to go with any decor. I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software to cut out all the letters in vinyl and reused the pretty mat that came with the original picture that I had painted over. Of course, now that I really love it, I want to make one for myself! We'll see if that ever happens. I attempted it once and it's not nearly as pretty as this one.


  1. It's fabulous! I'm so impressed with your crafty skills.

  2. Thank you! And I'm really not that crafty! I have crafty friends and read crafty blogs and get ideas from them :)
