DIY: What A Difference A Day Makes.

I loved these prints on Pinterest and knew I wanted to do something like it for Donny for Christmas.

But I put my own twist on it!  I wanted to use pictures instead of just dates.  So, I bought a frame from Walmart with six 4x6" openings in it.  I made the text blocks in publisher and sized them for 4x6 openings and printed the pictures that I wanted to use.  (Tip: Measure the openings in your frame.  Mine weren't quite 4x6", so my first text blocks were too big and had to be reprinted smaller.)


The three dates I used were May 21, 2011, the day we met...


February 9, 2012, the day we got engaged...


And November 10, 2012, the day we got married.


I loved this project, and Donny did too.  It was one of my favorite things I gave him this Christmas.  And now we have a photographic history of us hanging in our house!  :)
