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! :)
|Julie was no longer just going there "someday."|
It was TODAY!! And I wanted her to have something to remember it!
|Please ignore the slightly blurriness of the picture.|
Of course we forgot a real camera but cell phones proved to be better than nothing! ;)
