An aniversary and crafting post

September 9th is coming soon!
Who cares?
Me! And that one guy I like to call my boyfriend does too.
(Don't worry, he totally reciprocates and calls me his girlfriend. Unlike the boys I called my "boyfriend" in 3rd grade. Their loss;))
 
Which reminds me.
Is 22 the year that old boyfriends are supposed to write on your wall for your birthday?
I kid you not, no less than FOUR of them did.
 
SEE!
 
Wait, jk, timeline hates me. Which is fine because I hate it back and have possibly said some nasty things about it behind its back.
 
Just take my word for it on the ex-boyfriends feeling the need to spread the birthday love.
 
Anyway, back to anniversaries....
 
Mine and Matt's is coming up and I've been searching pinteresting to see what I could get him.
 
Obviously I came across this ever popular pin

and checked it out.
$65?! Are you kidding me?!
So I tried my hand at it using the MyMemories Suite I won at my girl Alana's blog, Life & Times.

What do ya think? Pretty close, right?! 
I had it printed on an 8x10 and framed it in one I found at Hobby Lobby.

I'm excited to start working on the second 1/2 of his present so I can show you guys:)
 
Happy Crafting!

  3. Congrats on approaching the 1 year mark! September 10th will be four years for me and Chris. Officially the "Are you guys getting married?" couple. NO. No, we're not.

    I'm 99% sure that Chris would assume I was cheating on him or trying to kiss his ass for something if I gave him anything like that. He's totally the girl in our relationship. Totally.

    Such a cute idea, though! And I really need to get my ass to Hobby Lobby!
