Subway Art ~Love Song Style

I wanted to make something for Valentine's Day to give to Matt.  Since it has never been my favorite holiday, I wanted something that was functional year round.  With the huge Subway Art trend going on right now; I decided it was time to jump on the bandwagon... but I wanted to give it a unique twist.

I used the songs from our wedding CD, wedding video, and songs newly discovered... obviously all relating to love.  The songs hold a special place to us, and help us remember the different moments when we heard them:)

I got a 12x24 inch canvas and "antiqued" the edges with paint.  I got together with Matt's cousin Sarah, and we had a vinyl cutting extravaganza;)

Here are the songs I used- in no particular order
(click on the links for the lyrics... mushy, romantic, memorable sentiments:)

"Lost in the Moment" I Loved Her First- Heartland
"You Have Stolen My Heart" Stolen- Dashboard Confessional
"Be as One" Grow Old Along with Me- Peter Brineholt
"Forever with You" Ever the Same- Rob Thomas
"I am the Luckiest" The Luckiest- Ben Folds
"Never Never Never Let Me Go" Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me- Mel Carter
"I Can't Breathe Without You" Love Only Knows- Josh Groban
"But I Love You, Until the End of Time" Come What May- Moulin Rouge
"Hold Me So Close That I Feel Your Heartbeat" Lay Down Beside Me- Alison Krauss and John Waite (my favorite love song this year)


Asher helped me a little, and he was just as excited as I was to give it to Matt.  So we did... last night.  We couldn't help it, we don't like to wait;)

Asher ran upstairs saying, "Daddy it's your present, I have your present. We won't sing Happy Birthday to you, because it's not your birthday. Happy Balentine's Day!"  It was adorable.  Matt appropriately gushed.  Now we have something special to hang in our room to remind us everyday of how special our marriage is, and how great it is to be in LOVE.


Happy Valentine's Day
