Our cropping group the Blossoms went away for our annual retreat weekend in March. We usually take a small gift along for one-another, this year I made these initial alphas as we has been looking at photo prop ideas.

I saw an article in an old copy of Creating Keepsakes Magazine:

I made an initial for each of my scrapping friends going to the retreat. So between Hobbycraft and The Range, I managed to obtain all our initials in 8" paper mache 3D letters. I painted each letter with acrylic paint and covered the front with patterned papers, then added names and embellishments from my stash. Each one was created in that persons favourite colours:

... 3 x A's, ...

... 3 x L's ...

... 3 x J's ...

... an S ...
