A different form of "Thank You"

You may remember that our sweet niece, Karie recently got married. I am the fortunate aunt that got to help her with a few craft projects for her wedding. :o)


One such project was adding vinyl letters to a couple of vintage suitcases she had picked up at a thrift store. We cut letters using my Cricut and stuck them to the sides of the suitcases. Her idea was to use the embellished suitcases for photos to be used for their thank you cards after the wedding.

I took this shot before the photographer got in the way and had to take his! The final photo they used for their thank you cards was so cute - one of them holding the suitcases while leaning in and kissing each other. SOOOO cute - and their photographer loved the idea and asked to purchase the suitcases when they were done with them.

And while we're on the subject of thank you's ~ thanks so much for your lovely comments wishing Doug and I the best with our upcoming home transition. The love and support I receive from my blog friends is invaluable to me.

Thank you!
Thank you!
Thank you!!!

Great idea. When Henry was two, we made a sign that said "thank you" (I think it was just sharpie marker on yellow construction paper) and had it hold it. We used that for his birthday thank-yous, and it was a big hit.
