I'm Going There {Today}

I think most people remember the primary song, "I Love to See the Temple."  It was definitely one of my favorites growing up because I always looked forward to being able to go the temple to be sealed to my best friend.  And one of the phrases, "I'm going there someday" seems to be plastered in every young child's bedroom with a picture of the temple--as a gentle reminder of the ultimate goal.  I know Baby Bunny will grow up seeing it!

Anyway, with my sister getting ready to serve her mission soon,  (She is going to the Texas, Fort Worth--Spanish Speaking.) she recently was able to attend the temple for the first time.  It was a wonderful experience for her and for me as well.  My mom was her "escort" but I was allowed to be her "second escort"!  A very sweet occurrence for me; one that I will always cherish! :)

I wanted to make something for her to remember her special day.  I decided to make a card that all of us at the temple could sign.  And inspiration struck!  I thought it would be so cute to use the phrase, "I'm going there someday!" just changed a little bit.  I have no idea if this already exists on pintrest--probably.  But I have banned myself from pintrest and don't have an account. (Maybe someday that will change but for now, I'm too busy and I have heard it is a huge time user and highly addicting!)  So, I'm excited to report this is totally an original idea!! :)  And you are welcome to borrow it for the next person you know going through the temple!  Also, for your information, we bought her some Downeast undershirts to go with-- the perfect present to make sure you are modest!

Outside of Card:
I found a picture of the temple I liked, traced it and then colored it in for light/ dark contrast.
I just free-handed the words but I think they turned out cute!
And a little ribbon never hurts! :)
Inside of Card:
Julie was no longer just going there "someday."
It was TODAY!!  And I wanted her to have something to remember it!
All Together:
Please ignore the slightly blurriness of the picture.
Of course we forgot a real camera but cell phones proved to be better than nothing! ;)
