Dress It Up WIth Vinyl! {Part 1}

My love for vinyl has been growing over the past few months.  It's amazing how a little bit of vinyl can change everything!  Lately, I have been fascinated with the effect of adding vinyl to everyday items!  A bit of vinyl turns the shabby into chic.  Drab to dazzling.  Plain to priceless.  (I could go on...)  Enter my new series:  Dress It Up With Vinyl!  For the next couple of Thursdays, join me for some adventures in vinylizing (yes, I made up that word!) your home!
As I anticipated our first real family reunion last month, I really wanted to create keepsakes for our family.  I wanted each family member to have some kind of souvenir to capture the fun family memories.  My parents had declared Helaman 5:12 {"the rock of our Redeemer"} the theme of our reunion.  Our first day, we took a family bike ride.  At one point, we stopped, and I asked everyone to pick out a good-sized rock.  Later that day, we scrubbed them until they shined!  Then my Mom, sisters, and I applied vinyl decals to each rock.
This is my brother's "bachelor pad" rock.  I love those dark colors!  Each family was able to take home their own souvenir rock, and we have all proudly displayed them in our homes.  My Dad even has one in his office!
Who would have thought that a ROCK could become a keepsake with a bit of vinyl?!  Sweet, simple, and meaningful.  Now that's my kind of craft!

    I know, vinyl is addicting :) I love the rocks! Great idea Alison. Is this regular vinyl or for outdoors? I heard there is a difference but haven't used the outdoors type as of yet.
