Inspired Wall Hangings

So the other day I was trying to figure out what I should put on my wall; I have two vacant nails in the wall screaming for attention. I wanted to put something to encourage and inspire me; something that will make me smile each time I see it.

My mother has these antique wall hangings that we find at Estate sales which I think are amazing:
I wanted to do my own version of the image or at least the style; originally I just wanted to copy the silhouette and just put a picture from my mission in the background. I served in Switzerland and France, so I had plenty of breath taking views and pictures. Then I kept looking at my mission pictures and I ended up using them for my silhouettes, too.

I loved my mission, up till that point it was the best part of my life and I still hold so many fond memories; the most inspiring part of my mission were the amazing ladies I was paired with. So here is what I came up with for my wall:

 I ended up making three (I couldn't stop); I'm going to add quotes and choose my two favorite. (the bottom two) and then mount them on board. This was a fun project and I loved looking back at all the amazing miracles that happened on my mission. Thanks everyone for the inspiration!
