Love Letters

I loved how this project turned out!  I was being lazy yesterday and one of my buddies made me get out of bed and craft.  I'm so glad she did!  :)  A group of ladies had gotten together and ordered these letters from The Wood Connection  We got a discount on the shipping which was nice.  :)

What a fun project, and even more fun that I didn't have to cut the wood out myself!  Not that I don't enjoy doing that, because I really do, but sometimes it is nice to have someone else do it, especially something tedious like these letters.  But aren't they cute?  All we did was paint them, I did mine in Napa Red from Americana (in the craft paints section) and then you trace your letters onto scrapbook paper, cut out the shape and glue it on.  I used spray glue, but a lot of the other ladies used mod podge.  Then you distress your edges and embellish it up!  I used flowers, glitter, ribbon, wire, beads, and a metal heart.  (It's on the "V").

I have letters like this that say Family and Welcome too, and now I can't wait to get onto those and get them done!  Fun times!
