Just A Note

Hello my crafty friends! Savannah is doing well. She has her second vet appointment next week. First for us together. Then we can go start the training classes. Pockets and Savannah are a hoot together when playing. They all but knock everything over in the living room as well as run into my legs. They do get me laughing though! So good to see them have fun together and so good for my old gal!

Well I wanted to show you what else was keeping me busy. A friend of ours got their annulments from their first marriages, so they are getting remarried in the Catholic Church in Sept. She had gotten pads of paper with their names and second wedding date on it and pens with the same info on them. She asked me what she could do with them to make them into a nice favor. Well....here is what I came up with. It is a 7x5 acrylic photo frame with blue paper in between where the picture would go. The easel part is up at the top, so it lays down, but elevated by the easel part so you can write. I attached the pad to the on towards the bottom. Then my friend got pen holders and I attached them to the easel part in the back, but so the first pen would show from the front. Each one got 2 pens attached. Then I cut "just a note" in white vinyl and placed that above the paper pad. Not hard work, but time consuming. But they are all done now and ready for the bride and groom.


Here here are the other 60. I'm glad I only had to do 61 of them! lol .



As always thanks for stopping by and visiting with me for a spell. I so enjoy when you come by! Your comments always bring sunshine to my day.

These are beautiful and very classy Brenda. In fact they scream that lol! Might have to borrow your idea if I end creating favours for my brother. So good to hear that the pup and your girl are making you laugh. They can't control their paws at that age and are hilarious to watch especially on wooden floors. Have a great day xx

OH I'm sure these took you quite a while to put together, but what a fun little gift to give everyone! I think these are a real handy item to have around, and if it lasts long enough, it will serve as a reminder for an anniversary card next year too! Nice job!

WOW Brenda sweet friend! What an amazing job you made of those favours! Such a lot of hard work too! How did you cut out the words? With an electronic cutting machine? I bet your friend was over the moon with them! Have a wonderful day my friend! Hazel xx

What a wonderful wee gift as a wedding favour Brenda, but as you say a lot of time consuming work.
So good to hear you, pockets and Savannah are all enjoying life together.
Blessings
