Inspired by Pinterest

Yikes! It has been forever since I posted on this blog. I really need to get my act together! Now that all my Christmas cards are made (but not in the mail yet, I need to work on that tonight), I have had some time to play around with My Digital Studio. I was inspired by a picture I had pinned on Pinterest. Its about time I got around to making something I had pinned!

The numbers are the birth dates of myself and my husband, our wedding date, and the birth dates of our two boys.  My plan is to put this in a frame in the collage of frames on my bedroom wall. I chose Baja Breeze paper for the background so it would coordinate with the room. It is so easy to use MDS to make custom artwork like this. You can adapt this idea based on the number of children in the family and make it in any color scheme you wish. This would also be a nice gift for a couple on their wedding day with just the bride and groom's birth dates and the wedding date. Having a framed reminder of these important dates might be a good idea for the groom to have around the house!

I can choose to print it on my home printer, take it to the office supply store to be printed, or get it printed via SU's professional printing service. I am in a hurry to see the finished product but I don't have the best color printer in the world so I think I will use the office supply store option. Stay tuned for a picture of the completed project in place on the wall.
