A picture says a thousand words...or twenty-two...
I wanted to bring something to Brandon & Rachel at the hospital in celebration of Weston's arrival, but didn't want to go the traditional route of flowers figuring they might already have quite a few arrangements. I had seen this concept on a website a while back (I wish I could remember and would give due credit if I could!!!), so I can't take full credit for it. I'm just old-fashioned in the way that I'd rather give you something I spent time making than something I purchased from a store. Plus, when you've got a new family member, I think it's always fun to see their name in writing :).
I had leftover craft paper from the LumberJack & Jill shower, so I made use of that and some twine for gift wrap, then picked up the letter "W" at JoAnn's to dress it up. I apologize for the poor pictures/lighting...I was in a hurry and wanted to make sure I at least captured it before I gave it away :).
So there you have it! If you have a friend that's having a baby or getting married - this is a fun way to celebrate their special day! All it takes is a computer, some paper, and a picture frame & mat and you are good to go!
