My husband and I have been married for 10 years and we have lived in 5 different houses in 2 states. Every once in a while, he expresses surprise and gratitude that I'm still around, willing to support him in whatever endeavor he feels led to. I tell him he's stuck with me for life! Cheesy
This project is something I've had on my mental list of things to make for quite some time, so when I saw the theme of this challenge I was inspired to finally give it a go! I have to say that I did not come up with this idea. I've seen the "Wherever you go...I will follow you" sentiment on many blogs, including I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar. It's usually done in the style of subway art, but I wanted to give this idea my own shabby twist.
I took an old canvas that I had lying around and painted it a creamy brown and then I went to town with my scrapbook papers, a map, my sewing machine, jewelry findings, and some stickers. I didn't buy a single thing for this project; everything came from stash! I even included a picture I love from our wedding.

The list of addresses uses 10 different fonts. From top to botom they are: Engravers MT, Rockwell, Copperplate Gothic Light, Elephant, Algorian, Rockwell Extra Bold, Castellar, Wide Latin, Felix Titling, and Segoe script. All other text on this project is either scrapbook stickers or chipboard.
Thanks for looking! This was truly a labor of love!

Neat idea.  I can understand your want of privacy but it's too bad you had to blur the last two lines as it takes away from the picture somewhat.

Wow this is really pretty. I love the sort of vintage, country feel it has. Nice work!
