We moved about 6 months ago. My boys FINALLY have matching beds and comforters. So my mind has been reeling (and their Pinterest board has been filling up) with ideas. I've had a really hard time trying to decide what to do. I originally thought super heroes because my 4 year old is right in the thick of a MAJOR super hero obsession…but he shares a room with his 10 year old brother, who is well out of that phase.
My husband has always had a thing for maps. He thinks they are so cool, and though at one point it would be fun to hang a large map in their room. I kind of dismissed the idea because my mind was focused on super heroes. Today, however, I came across this image on Pinterest:
In my church when boys turn the age of 18, they are asked to serve a mission for 2 years to teach those who want to listen about Jesus Christ. It is a huge part of their life, something they prepare and plan for for years in advance. They are called to serve all around the world, if my 10 year old could choose, he'd go to China, but they don't get to choose. :)
I decided to create some of my own printables to hang on their wall to remind them of this goal, along with an oversized map of the world. I wanted to share them with you, of course! :) The CTR print is 8x8 and the other 2 are 11x14. (click the images to download)
Week 6. I seem to be about a week behind on posting…but no worries, I'm not a week behind on my layouts. I'm promising myself I won't let that happen again! It's WAAAAAAY too time consuming to try and play catch up!
A little tip for this week:
Do you use Instagram? (follow me!! Link in sidebar) Well this week I had a post that I wanted to include…caption and all. So I simply took a screenshot of it, and used the entire thing on my layout! I found the instagram logo online and resized it to fit in the corner. I love how it turned out! It's always fun to try something a little different.
I just sent my Project Life 2013 album to be printed! To say I'm excited would be a HUUUUGE understatement. I've never been so excited to get a book in the mail, I even paid for faster shipping! :) I go through a place called PRESTO PHOTO (previously Viovio.com). I originally started printing with them because they offered a 10x10 size (which is my absolute favorite), and at the time it was hard to find. I believe there are more places that offer 10x10 now, but I've always been pleased with the quality and price. I'll take some pictures and give you a full review, up close and personal, when my book gets here. In the meantime, click the link in the sidebar and check them out!
