I bought some felt and cut it 4 x 4 and glued it onto the backs of the tiles. It gives it a much nicer, finished look. I also put mine on little easels so they can be displayed. Was thinking about putting a hook on the back so they can be displayed either on the easel or on the wall, but decided against that -- didn't have time for an run to the hardware store! I have 2 of my 3 done and am hoping to get my third one done today while I watch football -- ALL DAY!!! Then I'll take pics and post.

Sassie, I know the feeling! I ended up at M's 3 times Friday. Each time, I bought stuff, but forgot to buy the ONE thing I actually went for!

Scrappy, I hadn't planned on putting anything on the back of my tiles. It's up to each person individually, but if anyone plans to use the tiles on a wall or something, they'd need the bare back to hold the mortar.

Ummm... LOL. It's been a busy week around here. We threw a surprise party for my uncle and aunt's 20th anniversary last Saturday and this coming Saturday is our family reunion. Everything in between has been preparing for both parties. LOL. After this weekend, things should calm down for a few weeks. Every weekend this month is something time-consuming. The next weekend is Scrapbook Expo, then the last weekend is my 30th bday. I'm sure I won't get anything done that weekend.

So, my wonderful, awesome, amazing, loving husband bought me a new super duty glue gun for my birthday - complete with several bags of mondo sized glue sticks!!! I've been complaining for months that my little glue gun wasn't enough. Then it started to heat the glue too hot which of course meant that I ended up with blisters a lot. He was apparently tired of hearing about it!! Just wanted to share and knew you ladies would understand my excitement!
