[project] trip chart

Elle and Liv left with Grandma today for a trip to Washington. While they're gone, I made them a chart to keep track of the days. The image above is an example of how the chart will look at the end of the trip.

It was a last minute idea and easy to make. I drew the chart in Illustrator and printed it on white cardstock. We took pictures on my Mac with Photobooth and then printed them on white label sheets. I glued the chart to a larger piece of colored cardstock and attached a mini white envelope to the bottom of the chart filled with face stickers.

Each day Elle and Liv can pick a new face sticker of mom or dad to fill in the chart. Of course, they'll be having too much fun to care about ol' mom and dad, but hopefully it'll help them remember how much we love them! Have fun girls (and thanks Mom and Dad, Lauren, Sam, John and Olivia)!

Not only is this BRILLIANT Michelle, but it's possibly the best laugh I've had all week. A side of you two I rarely get to see ;)
