Weekends Full of Weddings

We are so blessed to have so many amazing friends.  In the past two weekends we have gotten all dressed up to attend the weddings of two of Hub’s dearest friends.


For both wedding couples we wanted to give them a heartfelt gift that had special meaning.  I made these personalized gifts for our friends, and loved how they turned out so much that I plan on making one for our home too!

I grabbed a 11x14 frame from the store with a 8x10 matte.


I used the canvas from some painter’s drop cloth, and projected an image I had created on my computer.

I used my trusty old Sharpie marker to trace my design onto the canvas.


Finally, I trimmed the canvas and placed it in the frame.  I am in love with the final look.


Both the Dunahoo and Kern weddings were so beautiful and perfectly suited for each sweet couple.  We had a blast at both wedding celebrations and feel so blessed to have been a part of these special days.  Hubs and I wish these newlyweds all the best!

PS - I just had to add this pic of Hubs getting ready…isn’t he so handsome? ;0)
