A little over a year ago, my husband took me to Italy. We were accompanied by his sister, brother and both of their spouses. It was the BEST trip I have ever been on, including the fact that we carted our then 6-month old with us. We were only there for 10 days, but in that short time we drove in a big loop, hitting Venice, the Cinque Terre, Florence, Sienna, Rome, Assisi, Verona, and so much of the beautiful countryside. It was quite a whirlwind trip! I wanted some way to memorialize the trip on our wall so we could always remember the fun little moments there, which is how I came up with this next idea.
I found the frame at a thrift store and repainted it. I printed the pictures at Kinkos, but I wish I had used Shutterfly as they produce better pictures. The large photo that the other pictures sit atop was printed at Kinkos. I suggest that if you are going to do that, pick a picture that is primarily a texture and not a pattern as it gets too busy. I used some brads I found in the scrapbook section and some embroidery thread to mark the different cities. I tied the embroidery thread to the brads then poked them through the cardboard backing the frame came with.
Hey there! I'm Kristin, aka Kit. Here is just a peek into my crafting mind. I hope you find something to spur some creativity!
