Getting My Feet Wet

Alternatly titled:
So Many Fish In The Sea
or
Gone Fishing
or
Holy Moly, Josie is almost 3!
After wondering around Hobby Lobby for well over two hours, I finally came up with what I wanted to do for Josie's invitations.
I walked out with brass fasteners and 8 sheets of scrapbook paper.
An hour later, I was surrounded by fish!

I love invitations. They set the mood for the shindig!

The fishes eye is a brass fastener so the fish swings open and I wrote the info on the inside.

Josie's Turning 3 Under The Sea!

And while I was in Birthday Execution Mode, I finished up the sheet for the game.

Can you come to my house and help me with Izzy's party which is Sunday? I have no theme, no games or activities and no motivation. All i know is I am making cupcake cones for dessert. I am so lame! Poor Izzy

Hey!
Okay, so our beadboard for that large of a wall was $8o.oo
We needed 4 pieces, and had quite a few big scraps left.
I'm trying to decide what to use them on around here. lol.
I already had the paint, and the shelf portion only cost about $15.00.
So I guess a grand total of about $100.00. It was definitely the most expensive project that we've done yet. But I really wanted the look of that thick beadboard there.
PLUS we aren't the MOST handy people ever, so seriously, this project took us only about an hour and a half. Because the work is already done for you. All you have to do is cut the boards to the height you want, put some paneling glue on the back, a couple of nails, and wa-la! It was great.
Hope that helps! Good luck with your project!
