Getting My Craft On! {part 2}

Hi Guys!

So, this is part 2 of the Summer somethings I made.  This was really easy to do.  I try to make one for each of the holidays.  I got the idea from Just Another Hang Up.  Suzanne does one for every month, she calls it  a monthly "Plaque Attack" I decided to try to design one of my own, of things that  reminded me of summer.  I  used Picasa to arrange the words how I wanted them.  Then I printed it off on scrapbook paper and mod podged it  to a wood plaque that I had painted from Hobby Lobby. 

This is what you'll need:

1.  Wooden Plaque 6 1/2" Square (@ Hobby Lobby for around $1.50)
2. Scrapbook Paper
3. Craft Paint/ Paint Brush
4.  Mod Podge
5.  Printer/Cute fonts
6. Clear Gloss Spray (to help  stop the ink from smudging when you apply the mod podge)

Here is mine...

FUN right!?!?  All I did was follow Suzanne's directions! 
I love how it turned out!  at Just Another Hang Up she explains in detail how to make your own!  It is so awesome!  She has some super cute stuff too!  She sews some AMAZING THINGS!  She is actually the one who made me decide I needed a sewing machine..yeah, I finally got one for Mother's Day!  Now I just need to make something cute!  Seriously though, I Love her site!  Go check her out! 

Have a great day guys!
I'm linking up to these parties:
