Nothing like Family

I've enjoyed spending the past week with my daughter and her new son.  What precious days these have been!

Jay was born a week ago.  We announced his birth here.  Now that my daughter and her husband have started their own family, they wanted a family rules sign.  So I had time this week to put one together for them.

I started with a pine board that I got at Lowe's.  I think this one measures 16x36 but they come in different sizes. I gave it a coat of Ce Ce Caldwell's Antique White.  

My daughter gave me a list of the rules and I used my Silhouette Cameo to put them together in different fonts. I cut out the letters and stuck them to the board, then spray painted over all of it with black spray paint.  (note to self: put a spray paint trigger in my son-in-law's Christmas stocking).

Then the fun began as I pulled the letter stickers off to reveal the rules.  I gave it a coat of wax and it's ready to hang in their living room.

Now if they can just get him to obey the "no fussing" part!

Party like a rock star:

Great job! You made that look so easy! But I know how tricky those little vinyl letters can be-especially on a sign that size! So CONGRATS on being patient! But most of all CONGRATS on that grandbaby :)
