Why Yes I Really Did Make It :)

Well this is the year that many of my classmates turn the big "5-0". No way can it be that many years since we graduated from high school. Anyway one of my dearest friends has her birthday in April, and I wanted to make her a cross for her collection!

So I asked Poppa to help me make one after I had gotten my idea together of what I wanted to make. I used my drawing skills (which are minimal) to make a pattern for him to cut it out of plywood.

Then I painted the edges and Mod Podged scrapbook paper to it and sanded the edges.

I added another cross and some ribbon that I found at Hobby Lobby. I added a hanger on the back and wrapped it up for my friend. When I gave it to her, I told her that Poppa & I made it for her, and she didn't believe me at first. Yes, I will definitely take that as a complement! :)
