gifts for fifty years.

A couple at our church recently celebrated 50 years of marriage. What a wonderful, admirable milestone to achieve!

I got crafty to make them a little something to commemorate the occasion.


ivory, white and barnwood acrylic paint colors, lace, ribbon and trims, number cut outs, rhinestone gem stick-ons, buttons, various scrapbook papers, burlap and sharpie markers.

I started by making a tiny banner that said ‘love’ and found some coordinating colors from my stash.


Putting the canvas together is my favorite part!

I also had the chance to play around with flower arranging for this event. My friend Ellen was making the cake for their anniversary party and she asked me to help her out with the topper.

So pretty!

Here’s to you, Mike and Paula!! Congratulations ๐Ÿ™‚
