My husband, Frank, got a new boat this spring ... this was a really big deal really around our house! I used my Cricut and vinyl to cut the registration numbers (that go along the sides) and then Frank decided I should 'dress up' the back of the boat, too! Love it ... another reason to play with vinyl!
I used my Gypsy to lay this out and weld the letters. The font for the names is from the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge and the other font is from the George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge. Now, I was going to leave it at that, but Frank suggested adding a little fishing pole and make it look like an exclamation point. Who knew he could be so creative!? This pole is from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge and is actually pretty realistic looking. I thought it needed a little something else, so I added the bobber. I made the bobber by welding shapes from the George cartridge ... I'm really proud of that little bobber ... it's my favorite part of this!!
Here's the story about the other name on the boat: Tatum is the 4 year old grandson of one of Frank's fishing buddies. Tatum is just a sweetie and he adores Frank. Now we're not quite sure what Frank said to him, or when he said it (because Frank talked about this boat for months!), but apparently he told Tatum something about having to save money so he could get a new boat. Well, a few weeks before we got the boat, Tatum's mom stopped by our house with a dollar and instructions to give that dollar to Frankie 'cause he needed money for his new boat ... too cute! We figure this makes him a co-owner, so his name is on the boat, too!!
