Good morning, I started on our guest 'book' for the wedding. If you couldn't tell, we are having a New England Patriot football/fall themed wedding. So how perfect is this for our guest 'book'?
I found this all white football at the Christmas Tree Shop. I put silver vinyl on the 'rough' panel that reads 'Amanda & Brian' (again in the birds of paradise font)...
and the date on the other end (stoehr number font). I just love it.
Here is a shot of the top of the football.
Here is the other side of the top. I have a football tee to stand it on a table at the reception. I just now have to buy some fresh sharpies for everyone to sign our ball. I am getting super excited.
Here is a bonus photo...this would be my son Jack (treeing walker coonhound) on the left smelling the football. He's gotta stick his nose in everything. I guess you can take the dog out of the forest but you can't take the hunting out of the dog!!!

Hello folks. I am so excited to share with you all the wine glasses that my lovie and I just made for our wedding. 
Since our budget is tight, we used glasses that we already had. 
I cut vinyl on my silhouette machine and stuck it to the glass.
Then we brushed on Armour Etching Cream. (Available at any craft store. I got mine at Joann's with a 40% off coupon.) I brushed it on in one direction, then another direction, then a different direction for 5 minutes. Then rinsed the glass off with water. Then I dried it. How simple is that? I just love, love, love how they came out. 
On the front they say 'Mr or Mrs Timberlake' (bird of paradise font) and then on the back...
It says our wedding date 9 (stoehr numbers font). I am unsure if I want to keep them like this or paint the stems with glitter. I think I will sleep on it and decide in the morning. Stay tuned to see how they come out.
