We look so very young!
We don't spend a lot of money on anniversary gifts. We usually just have a nice dinner and movie date. But, I have been on a craft kick, so for our anniversary this year, I wanted to make something.
I looked all over blogland for inspiration. My criteria was pretty general. I wanted something cheap and fast that was within my limited skill level. One of the things I saw were mosaics made out of photos of letters and numbers. I honestly can't remember where all my inspiration came from, but there are lots of you out there.
So on to the project...
I could have sent it out to be printed in a photo lab, but I am all about instant gratification. I printed it off on my printer with plain paper. It looked great! Then, I stopped by my local thrift store and grabbed an 11X17
awful gold frame with a white mat and a terrible lovely cherub print. The price was right at $3.50. The print went into the trash and the frame got a quick coat of Bahama Sea spray paint by Krylon that was hanging out in our garage.
The finished product - I love it! And Tommy loves it too!
My only cost was $3.50 for the frame. What a deal!
*Warning* Terrible cell phone picture ahead!
Happy Anniversary Tommy! Love you forever!
