First off, the Color Combo for today is CC134. You can view more info about it <here>. The colors are Blue Bayou, River Rock and Chocolate Chip. I didn’t have a chance to get a sample made, but you can find a link to one in the SCS thread. Have fun with it! I hope to make one today, but I am meeting up with Julie, Sharon and Jen so we’ll see.

But I did get the letters done for Caroline (the girl half of the twins my SIL is expecting – ANY DAY NOW!!). So I’ll show you those! I had a terrible time getting them all in one shot cause it was a lot of letters! I’ll show you the whole name and then I’ll tell you what I used!

There’s the whole name. I used the white monogram letters from Michael’s. The paper is all Fancy Pants Sweet Pea line. I traced the letters on the paper and cut them out – slightly undercut. Then mod podged the paper on to the letters and after it dried I sanded the edges a little. Next I sprayed them with the Plaid Acrylic Sealant in matte. That’s it! I did embellish two of the letters, but I wanted to leave them pretty plain. Two reasons for that – 1. I figured with several letters in several patterns, embellishments might be a little much; 2. I never know what to embellish ‘boy’ letters with and I didn’t want Samuel’s to be nekkid in comparison.

Here’s a little more up close pic…for the first half of the letters, I just layered several primas on the A and topped it with a pink rhinestone.

For the second half, I tied some ribbons on the N….

I think they turned out pretty cute!  I’ll show you his letters as soon as I finish them.  Seriously though, I am going to need a separate suitcase just to take all this stuff out there when these babies are born!
