How can I go so long and not post!

My classes end this week and my brother is now married so maybe I will start having a little more free time to create!

On April 24th, my brother Robby, the last of the 5 kids, married his campmeeting sweetheart. You know that feeling when you JUST KNOW something is right. Well, Robby and Nicole are just right. They are so made for each other.

Many of you know that most of the time, when I have time to craft, I love to craft with my Sister (in love) Jennifer. So Together we teamed up to decorate for the rehearsal dinner.

One of the first things we did is set up a table for all of the children. Jennifer lined the table with butcher block paper so that the kids could color and draw. The galvanized pails were purchased at Ikea. We bought the pink and blue cups from Michaels. With the cricut and SCAL we cut out the names of all the children with contact paper. Im not sure how long the paper will last, but the kids loved having their own names on the cups.

From the dollar store, we purchased fun pads and pencils and put them in the pencil boxes. I really scored last year with these boxes, I got 180 of them at .10 at Office Depot. They have really come in handy to use with kids crafts. The names on the pails were printed out on white card stock paper and then using the center key on the cricut we cut them out. We inked the edges and ran the names through the xyron sticker maker and attached them to the pail. The kids were very pleased and kept them all together at the table.

This turned out to be such a wonderful treat for the kids!
