Flip Flop Theme Photos

Thanks to Reva for the use of her photo!

Reva is one of "My Creative Ladies" as I so lovingly call you all.  

This was from her church Mother's Day Banquet 2013.  

Their theme was "Don't Flip Flop on Jesus".

I'm loving those large flip flops.  Her pastor made them for a photo prop. 

Here's how she said he made them.

He cut them out of a piece of 4x8 press board (it has a slick finish on it) 1/8" thick and then painted it.
