Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've all had a wonderful week. Big plans for the weekend? I've got a couple of things going on but nothing too big. I like those types of weekends.

Well, today I show you the plaque (?) I made for my grandpa and his wife for their new house. I picked up the lacing cards, letters, and patterned paper a couple of weeks ago and thought it would make a neat happy new home gift. This is made to set up kind of accordion style but I knew I wouldn't get a good picture of it that way so I just laid it down. The letters are chipboard with pre-cut patterned paper over top, I found it interesting that the colors ended up being same right next to each other. I really wanted them to alternate. So, while it is nothing over the top involved I know they will love it.

If you are wondering how the adoption hearing went it went very well and very quickly! I think we spent more time taking pictures than the signing of the papers took which is kinda funny! A couple of people were super sweet to bring gifts. My friends, Stephanie and Debby, got Todd balloons...a congrats, smile, and It's A Boy balloons. How funny is that! They also got Kyler a CWU t-shirt with AMES on the back. So sweet! Thanks so much you guys! A couple of Kyler's classmates got him some small gifts, too. Now, we need to make thank you notes!

Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful day! See ya tomorrow with my UDI Sketch Challenge card!
