Cute Way To Display Vacation Photos

Before Dave's birthday party I wanted to update some of our frames and I realized we had no pictures up from our recent vacations. Since we've been lucky to travel quite a few places in the past couple years, I quickly ran out of frames to put them in, so I came up with a new idea!

I had seen this frame at Pier1 a while back and it was perfect for my idea!

So I picked it up and then I edited a few of the best vacation photos in Picnik to make them look like Polaroids. Then I added text to the bottom of the Polaroid saying when and where the photo was taken.


I loooove the way it turned out!
Here are a few close ups for you stalkers :)



I hung this in our kitchen above the trashcan, so pretty much everyone saw it and I got tons of compliments and how'd you do that?'s ! The possibilities are really endless with this little project, how cute would ultrasound pics look?! or monthly baby pics! So much fun and easy to swap them out whenever you want! If you have any questions, let me know!

I might have to steal this for monthly baby pics once the little bean is here. Such a great idea!
