Saw It, Pinned It, Did It Link-Up!

I'm linking up with Katie and Steph for the Saw It, Pinned It, Did It Link-Up!
I knew from the beginning that I wanted to find a fun/cute way to ask my girlfriends to be bridesmaids in our wedding. I didn't just want to call them and ask, I wanted to get them a small gift and ask them in person. I saw this picture of a really cute way to ask and I knew I had to do it. I bet you can't guess where I found the picture? No way, it couldn't possibly be Pinterest could it? Imagine that. Yes, I confess, I am a Pinterest addict and I like to recreate other people's brilliant ideas. Someday I hope I'm as genius as others and can come up with something spectacular for Pinterest.....but right now I'm enjoying the inspiration from others. Thank you, Pinterest.
Here is my Pinspiration:
And here is my version:
I used the wooden door knob hangers from Michaels and I spray painted them with chalkboard paint. I tried to write on them with chalk so the girls could erase it and reuse them if they wanted, but it was super hard to write that little with chalk and make it look half way decent. Instead, I wrote on it with a white paint pen and if they decide to reuse it they can write on the other side. Not sure why they would need a chalkboard door hanger, but you never know.
We've been engaged over two months now, but I just now gave my last gift to one of the bridesmaids that lives in Nashville. It was super hard not to ask her over the phone and she FINALLY came into town!

I also saw this on Pinterest the other day and couldn't resist pinning it because it looked all too familiar. It made me crack up laughing.

Here is the Pinterest version:

And here is my dog, Samson's version:

Isn't that great? Soooooooo cute!

Thank you Katie and Steph for hosting this link-up. My goal is to participate every week so I can be held accountable for making, cooking, and using things pinned to my Pinterest. Most of mine will probably be wedding things so sorry if it gets old to you guys! I'll try to mix it up.
Have a great rest of the week!
