Tomorrow we will have been married for one year.
YAY FOR SURVIVING!!
But seriously, its amazing how fast a year can go.
We agreed to stick with the traditional wedding anniversary themes, and the first one is paper. Since tickets to somewhere fantastic like Mexico were not in the budget, Grayson Boy needs to eat and have some clean diapers after all...I started thinking about what I could make.
The hubs has been saying he wants to start a gallery wall in our front entry way, so I thought that might be a good place to start.
I saw similar projects like this out there, but I cant find them to link back and give credit. (If this was your idea, let me know and Ill link you up!)
This is the finished product:
Super easy and super cheap. I bought a frame from Ikea ($9.99), and printed maps from Google Maps of the places we met, the Church where we got married, and our current address.
Then using Word I made the We Met, We Wed and We Love labels.
After printing I made a heart template, and traced it out on the maps. Then I made a slightly bigger one to cut out a backing to make the maps stand out a bit.
A little rubber cement later and voila! A super cute custom piece of art.
Oh and the best part...this guy helping me out the whole time:
LOVE that kid. (Even if he does make it really hard to cut out hearts and glue things together)
