Baby Feet Sign

Good morning ladies!

How's your Tuesday morning going?

About 2 weeks ago, my cousin and his wife welcomed their 1st child, a sweet little boy named Sean.

If you've been with me for a while, you know that I love to add a personal touch to every gift I give.

So...here's what I came up with for baby Sean...

I started with a 24"x6" piece of premium pine that the guys at Home Depot cut for me...thanks HD guys!

I sanded my board nice and smooth and added a couple coats of Rustoleum Spa Blue.  After that was dry, I added a couple of coats of Rustoleum Espresso.  Once everything was thoroughly dry, I sanded the edges to expose the blue paint. 

I printed out the words, "Our family has grown by two feet" and the baby's birth info on my Silhouette SD using some baby blue vinyl.  I made sure that I sized the text so that there would be sufficient room on the right side for Sean's footprints.

After a couple of coats of spray sealer and a saw toothed hanger on the back, my sign was ready for gift giving!

I also included a small bottle of baby blue acrylic craft paint and a sponge brush in a cute little bag and tied it onto the sign.

Cute, right?
