Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Right after we got, we started to receive a few beautiful and really thoughtful gifts from some of our closest friends. I think engagement gifts aren't necessary, so we really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the gift givers. I don't like to do standard thank yous because if someone went out of their way to do something nice for me, I want to give them a personal thank you.

That being said, I think we came up with the most perfect idea for thank yous!

We used 3 photos from the day of the proposal. We wanted to give each person a little glimpse into the day. So we had a picture of us taken the day of the proposal as the card, we used the picture of the date of the proposal written in the sand as the stamp, and a picture of my ring as a sticker to seal the envelope.

Close ups of the pictures used:

I'm so happy with how they turned out! They are super easy to make. Go to Zazzle to pick your product, upload a picture and your product is ready to purchase, you can also add other features such as text. You can't see it, but we had Thank you! written on the card.

Do you like personalizing thank you's too? How have you made your thank you's personal?

OH I love love love love love this! Envelope seals and customs stamps are my favorite and then to use them as a part of the Thank You is sooo neat! Great job.

Just added you to my blog reader and my blogroll. Thanks for your link love :)
