Saw It. Pinned It. Did It.

I'm linking up here for:

This was a pretty simple thing to do, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. 

I saw this one on Pinterest and new I could try and make one for my own house. I made a much simpler one for our living room gallery wall when I first added the gallery, but I just used a simple font from word with no color. So I thought this idea was much cuter. I used PicMonkey to make the new one and then just had it printed at Walgreen's since I'm all out of ink in my printer right now. ☺

I changed up the font and added the date that Jake and I started dating, to fill up more white space. Plus the little saying at the bottom says "first comes love" so I thought that date should be on there! Here's my version, before printing and framing.

And here it is printed, framed and hanging on the wall! I love it and it was super easy!

So easy in fact, that I made one for my sister too, and I just might make a few more and frame them for Christmas gifts! 

 What have you been pinning and making lately?

Ah - that is definitely on my to do list. In fact, I have it written out on my dry erase board in my office. I'm just waiting for a number two to come along to complete it. It looks great! :)

Also, did you and your sis plan having Mason and Jackson so close together? They are going to love being so close in age!

I would love to do this. I have been playing around with picmonkey for about an hour now and can't figure out how you did this. Did you just use their free tools or do you have a membership with them?? ... I see where you can do text but I can't figure out how to get rid of their sample pic and make the background just white. If you have time would mind telling me how you did it with picmonkey??

THANK YOU!! Your's looks great!!

Love it! How do you make something a 8x10 size on picmonkey? I'm sure that's a stupid question....but I'm challenged in this area!

I pinned this on Pinterest a while back too! I've yet to make one though because I wasn't sure how to fill it up since I only have one child -- you solved that for me! . Yours turned out fabulous! I like that you included your birthday and your husband's too.

so so cute!! Now I just need a few babies so I can make this and have more than just mine and my husband's birth dates lol!

PS-so sorry I'm just now commenting! Life has been CRAY these past few days. Thank you for linking up with Katie & I!
