Sherry from Young House Love and Katie from Bower Power came up with a challenge to take place every season. Basically, it makes you stop pinning and start doing.
I needed one more frame to fill my gallery wall so I began looking on Pinterest for some ideas. The wall is based around memories and sentimental items from my 7+ years dating my now hubby. I found some fun ideas and knew I could use my box of memories to help me carry it out.
This was my inspiration for the challenge:
I dug through the box and pulled out movie tickets, train tickets, concert tickets, sporting event tickets and more! I began by laying them out on a piece of white paper that was about the same size as the frame I would be using.
I rearranged them multiple times and still wasn't happy with the result. I think there were too many options. I narrowed it down to just sporting events, chose a smaller frame and began working on the layout again. I still was not loving it.
Greg and I have been to 4 Michigan State Football games together, including the Big Ten Championship game (which had an awesome ticket). I grabbed the tickets from those 4 games and shifted them around a bit.
Much better. It was very personal, brings back lots of memories yelling "Go Green, Go White" and I knew my husband would approve. I used removable adhesive on the back of the tickets and adhered them onto a white piece of paper. In the future, when we have more tickets to Spartan football games, I can find a bigger frame and the tickets won't be ruined.
The last step was to hang it on the wall.

Here is the view of the wall looking to the right:
The art in the frames include favorites from our relationship, Murphy, a house picture, engagement pictures/where we got engaged, wedding invite, wedding pictures, our wedding song in tree form, map of places we have traveled together, important dates, Ohio watercolor, a dried flower from my wedding bouquet and of course the newest ticket art.
