Homemade Christmas Gift = Nightmare!

But it actually turned out great and I hope my mother in law enjoys it and finds a place for this massive bad boy!!! If you notice how the letters are not perfectly aligned just tilt your head a little to the right and left or up and down for that matter and it will look great. And remember it is Sam's fault not mine! :) Sorry the picture is a little dark and there is a terrible glare!

Want to make your own? Click here for the tutorial. I mean did you seriously think I came up with this one on my own.... Ha! The only difference is I used black vinyl and my Blessings block is actually 26 inches long. Not to mention hers is much cuter I know!!! Now I am on to make one for my own mom. I just didn't have enough time to make 2 before Christmas and my mom wanted a new bedspread for Christmas. But since my mom only has one grandchild you just might see my face along with a face for each of their other children and children-in-law on these bad boys! haha. We are blessings right??????? FYI: I used the Alphalicious cartridge for the letters and the Sweethearts Amoureux Cartridge to make the scrolly.

P.S. Do you know what it is like to take pictures of an 8 yr old, 6 yr old (Ethan you are 6 right?), 4 yr old (Logan 4???? I know I am a terrible aunt!), 2 yr old, 1 yr old (nearly 2), 11 month old, and a 3 month old!!! A crazy time! Can you even imagine a group shot... I bet you are picturing crying, some silly faces, and maybe even some hitting???? You are right!!!! Here is "the good one" just for kicks!

Happy crafting to all and to all a good night!!!
