Now That's What I Call a Life Verse...The Reveal

I did it
, I did it...I finished Caleb's life verse. It was so easy to put together too! Here's what I did:

I went to Hobby Lobby, of course, and got the paper and frame for the verse. I went with a paisley (my new love) background and then found matching blue card stock for the actual verse. What took me the longest was what I was going to do with the card stock. Did I cut a border, did I just curve the corners, did I cut it in some cool shape...oh, the decisions (and the realization that I could really use a Cricut!).

I ended up just trimming the paper and then curving the edges with my cool little tool to the left.

Then I put the verse on the background. Isn't the paisley just lovely! Or handsome in Caleb's case.

Here's God's true and faithful servant Caleb posing with his life verse. Oh, I also added a cross sticker for some jazz.

Here it is on the wall. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it here because Caleb likes to slam his door and I don't want it to fall.

So, there it is. I like the way it turned out! I hope to be able to keep doing little projects like this, one at a time.

Hi Kelli,

I just e-mailed you in regards to your comment on my blog, but it looks like you've already taken care of the life verse and it looks great!! I like the colors and the corner rounding. What a special thing for your son to have in his room.

Have a great weekend!

I love it! That verse is great! What is that little tool you used for the corners? I asked my hub for a Cricut Expressions for it for an all in one birthday-anniversary-Christmas present. Fingers are crossed.

I was in the scrapbook store yesterday and had my eye out for yellow paisely for you. When I find some I will send it out OH way.

Oh, Kelli, I LOVE the paisley, it looks great! LOVE it, I want to do that :)

Looks awesome!!! He will so appreciate it some day...if he doesn't already!

{I'm so behind on bloggy buddies! Sorry for not commenting, but I'm catching up on your blog! You've been busy! It's actually been a nice break to be away from the computer a little bit...and it's been so HOT! We are tuckered out!}
