My New Letter "A"

Cade and I went shopping at Hobby Lobby today when I picked him up from school. I saw a picture on a fellow blogger's site of a photo wall, and was inspired. . . I can see the letter "A" , the number 5, and lots of other ideas are flying around in my creative mind. . . .I have a vision of what I want to do. So first I was on a search for the letter "A". If you aren't sure why I want this, I will educate you "Cade Style". "We need the letter A because we are the Allen family. . .Right?" Exactly right. . . Thanks so much for making that so clear, Cade. Gotta love him. . .Anyway, we searched all over the entire store. . .with no letter "A". . .I was just about to give up, when I rounded the corner and ta-da. . this is what I saw... The letter "A" that was in my vision. . .Can you believe it? Have you ever knew what you wanted, but haven't actually seen it yet? That is what happened here. . .I can't wait to get my project underway. . . This is the "A" hanging on my wall in the den. . . It looks so good against my Ralph Lauren suede paint. . .The "A" is only a part of my vision, wait until you see the completed vision-on my wall. . . I will be sure to photograph it upon completion. . . I am so happy with my "A is for the Allen Family"!!!!!

LOL, I followed your hit from my site meter and almost jumped out of my chair when the photo came up! LOL
My D is from JoAnne's. It's cardboard. You might also look at "Say it with Letters" She was a feature of mine. Deb is awesome and she has several fonts to choose from.
