Super cute but after I read her tutorial, I knew I would not have the patience or ability to make something that elaborate, but I liked the idea. Then, just the other day, I was reading a post on Thrifty Decor Chick about creating your own prints with Picnik. I was pretty excited because I had just started playing with Picnik** and was becoming familiar enough with their software so knew this was something I could at least attempt. Sarah's tutorial is wonderful so if you'd like to know how it's done, click over to her post and give her a visit. Here is my finished project - keep in mind, it took me about 3 minutes to create so it's not very fancy, but I plan to spruce it up a bit with a nice frame and mat...
I choose the color based on an evolving color pallet in our living room and I thought to font was kind of fun. The dates do offer significance in our family...
Something that has always fascinated me about our family is our dates. Both Hubby and I were born on the 17th, just two months apart, in the same year. He coincidentally proposed to me on the 17th. And kind of funny we were engaged in December, married in August and then a few years later found out we were having a baby in December and she was born in August. I'm not much for lucky dates/numbers or any of that but if I were, I think I'd have a few to pick from.
I like this idea and am really happy with how easy it was. It will be a simple task to someday change it out to accommodate for the changing events in our family's life.
**I received a notice this past weekend Picnik is closing but they are merging with Google+. I really hope their new program will be just as user friendly and free!
