Dollar Store "Where I've been" Map!

I have been dreaming of owning one of these bad boys for years ....

Everytime I fly, I find myself browsing through SkyMall -
and drooling over this.
It's a personalized travel map.
It allows you to put pins where you've been & where you want to go!
(nerdy, I know ... but I just loooooveee maps!!)
But at a price of $199.99 - Not gonna happen. Not in this lifetime.

Then I found a pretty little world map at the Dollar Store ...
and I decided to try and make my own!!

One hour, one map, one bulletin board,
some mod podge & lots of push pins later ...
I had my own version! :)


and although its not perfect and not nearly as nice as the one above ...
I love it!
and I love the price tag - all $10.00 of it!

I like to party ...
