Happy blocks

I've had this picture on my desktop for months now.
I found it on some linky party and have wanted to make it ever since. (sorry, I can't find the link to the source though!)

My biggest obstacle? I don't have a saw to cut the wood. Yes, I have a fabulous sister who would let me cut any old time at her house, but that required to have enough motivation to actually go get the wood and figure out sizes and such.

Last month our church did a craft night. We made these beautiful temple blocks with pictures of our local temple.  When I took mine home, I realized I had just enough blocks to make the saying. I'm a fan of double duty crafts (less to store!), so I flipped those blocks over, modge podged some scrapbook paper (I also inked the edges), and slapped on some vinyl cut with my Silhouette.

Swoon! I adore the way it turned out. Now, obviously, I didn't do it exactly like the inspiration picture. But I had just the right about of room, and I'm very happy with the results!

(and since I know someone will want to see the temple side too)

*in case you're wondering, the paper came from Michaels and Hobby Lobby. The fonts for the vinyl are Pea Aimee, Century (the &), and Bookman Old Style (the love).

    And BTW, I checked the button and for some reason blogger added a bunch of weird code to it when I copied it. I have it fixed now. Thanks for letting me know!
