Family Sign

I've been dying to make one of these for quite some time and it was one of the first projects I intended to make with my silhouette machine.  I bought a gigantic board at Home Depot and sat down to cut out my lettering.  It took me about 5 sheets to get all the lettering.  I painted the board and then laid the lettering on and then brushed white paint over it and then peeled up the lettering.  I love the rough edges it created and made it a bit more rustic.  I know the year is off centered but I love it just the same.  An even better bonus is that it covers up the wires to the tv that my husband had to hang on the wall. <yes, I'm rolling my eyes>
