Hello everyone. I have been a bit busy this week and have been ignoring the blog world. I am currently in Spartanburg, SC at Scrapbook Creations for a Breast Cancer weekend crop. I am joining my friends Jan, Susan, Bonnie, and Peggy for a weekend of de-stressing, girlfriend time, and cropping for a worthy cause.
Last night, while packing scrapping supplies and clothing, I took time to create this hurricane. My older son, Aaron, is attending the wedding of one of his college roommates, Michael, and needed a nice gift. Aaron and Crissie will be spending the night at my house en route to the wedding. I left the finished hurricane, it's box, a gift bag with lots of tissue AND a wedding card waiting for he and Crissie to take to the wedding with them. I hope they like the hurricane as much as Doug and I.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the vinyl for this project. I used a split letter alphabet, the letter M, and a basic font from my computer.
In addition to Michael and Christie's names, I added "est. 2012" as they will be married on 9/22/12.
Here is one final peek at the front of the hurricane. The hurricane is 8 inches tall so the "M" was cut at four inches tall. When I added the gap in the middle for Michael and Christie's names, the design filled most of the hurricane side.
I am hoping to have a restorative weekend here in Spartanburg but also to complete a lot of projects to share with you over then next couple of weeks.
Thanks for stopping by today and viewing my wedding gift project!
