Happy B-day Ray Ray

Oh my gosh I think everyone in my house is officially not sick any more. I sure hope so cause I need to take pictures of a kid in the worst way. I didn't want to risk taking them outside just yet but I promise Jenn and Jess I will get my fishy pictures soon. (I am always late for a date, ;) )

On to today's post Monday is my best friend Rachels birthday. I am always trying to find perfect or unique gifts and Rachel just moved into a new place with her fiancee. I happened upon some site that had these really cool prints, most of them were words with one or two pictures thrown in. I thought they were really cool and went to check the price. $175! Yeah I love Rachel but that's a lot lol.

So one of my friends said maybe I could make something like that. Now I don't think I am that creative in that department, but I started to think about it. Photoshop seemed to be my only answer. I found a ton of really cool royalty free allowed to use for personal use vectors and went to work with some textures.


If I do say so myself I think they turned out pretty a-mazing! I even love them more than the originals I saw. There is just something about the pictures over the words that I love. The hard part was picking which ones to use, I have quite a few that I didn't use.

This picture really doesn't do them justice (just layed them out on my floor), but they will look so cool hanging on a wall.

A little closer look at some of them:

FYI- It is so hard to find 9 matching 8x8 square frames (heck even finding a square frame was kinda hard). So I had to order them, in the end I did save money but it was still kinda pricey. Who said you can't put a price on friendship ;) Now I have to make one for my house.

Happy Birthday Rachel!

Those are so awesome-I need something like that for my bedroom. We've lived in the house 7 years and still have NOTHING on the master bedroom walls. Ridiculous.
So don't be surprised if I "commission" you to do a few for me too. :)

Jess said...

WOW, I freakin LOVE those! You HAVE to share with me where you found those awesome vectors! And no worries about being "late to the party"...I knew you guys had the sickies going around. Better late than never, right? xoxo
