 This year I made each of the couples on Doug's side this fun catch-all serving tray. 
 The artwork is by Nancie Rowe-Janitz and the entire project directions can be purchased at right here.  The tutorial is on sale right now!
I think they are so fun and they were very easy to make and really affordable.
 You don't even need any Photopshop expereince, the tutorial has everything you need as far as artwork, you just need a printer to print (I actually took mine to Staples to have printed).
 Someone suggested they would even be cute hung on a wall.  I thought that was a great idea!
The tutorial is worth it just for the art.  Nancie is amazing!  I think using this concept the possibilities are endless.  You could personalize the tray with your own sentiment, you could use other things than a serving tray, even use totally different artwork.

I love that it's not perfect looking.  I think they have a lot of character.

 She walks you through painting the trays to get that distressed look, even giving you the exact colors she used in the artwork so you get a perfect match.
