Y is for Yanet

In the Sun Kissed Boys’ playroom, I’ve started an alphabet wall.  I only buy letters when I find them on sale and I also want different fonts to them so it’s going to take me a little while to complete.  My intentions are to have all the letters in gold, silver, or bronze except for our initials.  For all our first name initials I want to paint and embellish the letters.   

What better time to start than on Jenny Matlock’s Alphabet Thursday – Letter Y?!  After all, Y is for Yanet! 

I spray painted the letter Y in my favorite color.

Then I embellished it with these rosettes I made with white and black fabric. 

The little faux pearl in the middle came from an old necklace that had broken.

While I made my rosettes Sun Kissed Boy #1 made a craft of his own.  A Harry Potter wand!I

You made a very pretty "Y" Yanet! I love the color red.

To answer your question about photo size ...I use the "minima stretch" template though blogger which will allow for the extra large photos to publish without being cut off.

LOVE your alphabet wall. The red you chose for your "Y" was a great choice and I like the embellishment, especially the addition of the pearls! Are you going to paint your boys' letters with their fav colors? By the way, thank you for visiting my blog... I really appreciate it!

Yanet, I know I've told you before but I've always been enchanted with your name.

And I am enchanted with your wall as well. I love this idea!

And that wand is adorable.

I think he is taking after his very creative Momma!

Thanks for linking up to Alphabe-Thursday for the letter "Y"!

I'm so glad to see you here!
