For the Bride & Groom - a Chalkboard Wedding Gift

Hello there. We had a crazy past couple of weeks, which explains the "silence" on the blog. We have been rotating from the Princeton Animal Vet to the Northstar Vet Hospital with Jojo. She has been going through a spell where she doesn't eat, drink and has gotten so dehydrated and so weak she couldn't even walk or roll over from her back. It's breaking our hearts that we don't know what's ailing her and we hope that this time around they can come up with a diagnosis. She is currently still in the ICU and any prayers that you can send our ways would be greatly appreciated. 

But I am here to share with you a little chalk-board inspiration that I worked on. It was a present for my girlfriend's wedding. We are gifting them a 1-hr photo shoot and I wanted to create a hand-made little gift certificate. Here is what the chalkboard-part looks like.

For the Bride & Groom
Stamps: (Big Day - Additions, Ovals - Classic Frames, Cameo To Go) Neat & Tangled
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - True Black) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Gelly Roll - White) Sakura; (Border Punch - Postage Stamps) Fiskars


I created a portrat with his and hers. In hindsight I could have used the Cameo Creations, but this hopefully brings the point across that it's a portrait session for the bride & groom.

This part we then added into a wedding frame and wrapped into a gift. (I haven't figured out how to take a picture of glossy things from straight ahead without getting myself into the picture).

Here is a picture of the frame from an angle - a little cleaner and nicer.

I hope to get my December Daily sometime done and get underway with my Project Life 2013 album. Anyone else not done with those? Ahh - I'm always catching up it seems!

I am sorry to hear about your pet :( Hope things are looking up for it!

And your art project, Ren-Yi! What a wonderful use of these sets! I love the double cameo inside the pretty leafy oval. Your extra pencil detailing is FAB and makes the images and the sentiment really look like authentic chalk drawings!

dog insurance You just have to know what kind of coverage you would like to be in your plan so you can choose an appropriate insurance for your pet. It allows you to know exactly where they are at any given time, making it easy to find them in the event that they escape, are stolen, or get lost.
