Wedding Sand Bottle


Okay, I apologize to all of you that look forward to my email or blog posts daily.  I assure you I have been crafting, just haven't had much computer time.  It seems that when I can actually get onto my computer someone is using it.  I know, you are probably saying "well, it's your computer, so use it".  Well, easier said than, I finally have some computer time, so here is something I created. 

A friend of mine is in a wedding coming up and she is a bride's maid.  She wanted to get them something special and of course came to me.  At first we were going to etch some wine glasses like I did for my daughter's wedding.  The saying was a bit too much for the glasses though.  You know how much I love garage sales and I had gone with my daughter a couple of weeks ago and found these awesome wine carafs.  They were $1 a piece and I snagged 3 of them up.  I tried etching on them, but it wouldn't take.  I've ran into that a couple of times before.  I'm not sure why some glass takes, but others doesn't.?? so, vinyl to the rescue!!!  The wedding colors are hot pink and black and I love those colors together.  I used my SCAL to cut the letters using the Georgia font and made some letters bigger than others.  I really love the way it turned out.  My friend is going to buy some black and pink sand and then they can layer their love.  If and when I get a picture of it filled I will post it.

Let me know what you think and remember, I LOVE comments.  Good or bad.
