For David's birthday, I wanted to commemorate the time we spent in Europe last spring and summer. Although I wanted to do something like this, I have limited experience with Adobe Illustrator. Instead, I took a black and white photocopy of an old Europe map, colored it, and added mini photos of each city we were in together. It's really simple, but I love the way it turned out. And to think: this time last year we were just heading to Salzburg!
