One shoe can change your life

Remember this post about my girlfriend who has everything, and what do you get her for her birthday?  Well to go along with the "K" that I made her, I also made this sign with one of my favorite quotes on it.

I bought the wooden sign at Michaels and painted it hot pink.  Then I printed out the words in the size and font that I wanted, and I used carbon transfer paper to trace them onto the sign. 

 Enter trusty paint pen (Michaels also)... those are the best things ever!  Since this font is very girly, it's twisty and small and tedious.  For this project, I used an ultra fine point paint pen.

I used a glossy finish spray and stapled a ribbon on the back.  Of course I couldn't resist bedazzling it a bit with a little sparkle on the flower.

The leopard print on the "K" will go fabulously with the pink and black on this sign.

Happy Birthday Kymmie!
