70 Things We Love About You…


When my mother-in-law turned 70, we wanted to give her something a little different. We had all her children, their spouses and her grandchildren write down a list of things that they loved about her. We gathered them together and typed them all up so that we had 70 different things. I typed up each statement and then we cut the paper into 70 strips, each strip containing what was said and by whom. I decorated a brown paper box (found at Robert’s) and covered it with scrapbook paper using Mod Podge. We placed all the strips inside the box. Hopefully it will be something she can pull out every once in a while and enjoy.
