I figured it out...last week I had a problem with my idea that I first had of using the Studio Calico wood states as a full map, that didn't work out too well {see the Link to my first try}.  Then I thought of just highlighting the places that we have lived and "Bloomed where we were planted". 

I bought this frame at IKEA for .99 cents, I should have bought more...what was I thinking!  I used some My Mind's Eye scrapbook paper and attached them very simply.
{that is our wedding picture in the back...we were married in the Bountiful Utah LDS temple on a very cold and snowy day in November {here is a LINK to see more pictures of the temple}. While we were getting our pictures taken, I had lost my shoe in the snow. The photographer caught the moment when we found the shoe and dumping the snow out of my shoe...yes, I was frozen, but it was the most gorgeous day ever!}

It is also double sided, so I took advantage of that.
I cut out words:  Bloom, Plant, Grow, from an old dictionary to make the banner.

  1. INSPIRATION! I love these cute little ideas-- the states, the bloom where you're planted, and, of course, the countdown calender! You made it sound so easy!
