Family Wood Blocks


 The sun is out and the kids are outside playing and here I am on the computer!  I just had to post this craft that I finished yesterday.

  Please excuse the crappy pictures.  I let my older kids take my camera out of town (I know, what was I thinking!), so I had to use a really cheapo camera that my daughter should have taken with her, but instead she has my good camera, arrgh!!

I bought the vinyl like 3 years ago from a friend and it's just been sitting around.  Finally I got motivated to paint it!

For this set, I used coordinating Scrapbook paper and mod podged it on the blocks, except the long one.  I just painted that one of my favorite colors:  Americana- "Spa Blue."  The "Family" blocks I painted with Martha Stewart's "Wedding Cake."  

I love the Spring colors, don't you?  

I may give this one away, but it will be hard to part with it!  

Hope your day is going great and that you have lots of Sun where you are!!
