Dates that changed our lives



I love pinterest.
There are so many great ideas out there and it is nice to keep them all in one spot.
Not to mention how easy it is to find other great ideas.
Like this one.



I saw this personalized art date print from The Memory Gallery and immediately was inspired to make my own.
Personalized Art Date Print. Vintage Letterpress Style Art. Unframed Print 8x10 inch. Wedding Date Art, Wedding Anniversary Date Print.

This is a copy of the one I made in picnik.
It has all of our families birth dates.


I printed it off on photo paper at Walgreens for $2.99
and then put it in a frame I had laying around the house.


So easy to make!
You could add anniversary dates, wedding dates, proposal dates, birth dates, the possibilities are endless.
What dates would you use?

**Update: I've had several people ask me what font I used.  For the dates I used FF Confidential and for the written script I used Marcelle Script.  I made it in Picnik which is closing on April 19.  Don't forget to make one before then!
