Choose the Right plaque

Late last week our church's women's organization got together to do a bit of sharing and creating! We were each asked to submit Traditions that our families observe and favorite family treats.  In addition to that, we were each given a piece of parchment cardstock and asked to print a family motto on it to bring to the activity. Honestly, I forgot about the motto until the last minute and when I asked my sweet hubby to help me come up with one he kept throwing out silly things I couldn't see hanging on my wall at home. So, I decided to do something a bit different. Our son has discovered the wide world of lies and fibs. Oh yes, the sad day has arrived. He hides notes from his teacher when he gets in trouble at school. He hides the food when he's caught eating in the TV room. So... I decided to dedicate this plaque to him.

I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted at first, but lo and behold I discovered a fun printable on etsy. And with some fabulous help from my sister, I cut the design out of navy blue vinyl after painting the pine board cream.

A small picture hanger was nailed to the top center and a couple hot glue bumpers were attached to the bottom corners to protect my wall.

I love easy projects! I was almost an hour late to the activity because of some last minute design tweaks, but I was one of the first to leave since I didn't have to wait for ModPodge to dry. If you haven't tried working with vinyl you should give it a try. It's great stuff! and available in so many colors now.

Thanks Purple Designs for the inspiration. And muchas gracias Judi for your technical assist!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Have a fantastic day!!
