I think I am in LOVE!

First off I just wanted to thank all of you super kind people who replied to my post yesterday and all the sweet comments.  It truly made my day!  I couldn't stop smiling at all the nice things! 

Now on to the fun craft that I have been up to today.  Yesterday was my amazing mom's birthday, so I needed to do something for her.  Of course I wait till the very last minute to do it.  We are having her birthday party tonight, so I needed to get started.  Now this women has every thing and more.  But you never can have too many cute home decor.  So I am doing her a wooden LOVE blocks.

I started with a left over pieces of a 2*4.  I had my sweet dad cut them for me.  Then I spray painted then with the Leather Brown Paint.  I have such a hard time with the drying part. I wish that I could just spray a thick coat and then it dry fast.  That is not how it work.  Thin coats and more then one. Yes, I sprayed other for another project! I am not quite sure yet.  But I will show you when I decide.

Then I sanded the edges.I then pulled out my scrapbook
paper scraps cute out a back piece.  

Then I got out my handy dandy Cricut and cut out white letters.
With a little ink and a little time you get such a cute look.  It adds so much to it!  I love inking! 

Then this is the final product! 

I think I am in LOVE! 
(Bytheway, she loved them!)
