Fun & Simple Photo Card

I love how inspiration is at our fingertips constantly and left for us to interpret however we please.  It is an amazing thing how one idea can take off in twenty different directions.  Love it.  

I have a friend named Jody.  She blogs at Clean and Simple.  She is awesome.  She recently threw a party for her oldest daughter who turned 18.  The party was held outdoors and on their garage door she created a huge # 18 formed by 100 black & white photos of her daughter.  Genius, right?    

She shared the original photo that inspired this special feature at her daughter's party.  It came from Martha Stewart.  

I fell in love.  My niece was also turning 18 and I thought this idea could be used on a much smaller scale to create a birthday card for her.

I found a photo of her as a baby and a current photo.  I copied and pasted the photos into a word document on my computer, shrunk the pics to tiny, and printed off several rows of both pics.

I then cut out each tiny pic and glued them onto a folded piece of cardstock in my niece's favorite color in the shape of #18.

Super fun, simple, and completely personalized for the birthday girl!

Thanks, Jody { & Martha} for inspiring me! 

Check out these blog parties for a crazy amount of inspiration!

Happy Tuesday!

This is a great idea! And, I'm sure it made your niece feel so special to receive such a personalized card.

The projected turned out great. I love the both the wall display and the birthday card, very unique.

I've loved that "50" every time I see it, and love what she did with the "18" as well!

This is SO incredibly cute Tiffany! What a great card, so personal and fun! I would keep this out if I were her. :)

Great idea. How fun to gather pictures through the years and use them rather than keep them locked up in albums that rarely get looked at.

And for the record, Tia was pumped about this card! I'm certain it was her favorite...
