Here is what she has to say about her project:

I absolutely am so INSPIRED by both Barbara Picinic (a.k.a. Babz510) and Shanna Noel! One project Babz510 did that particularly stood out to me was a silhouette cut-out (that she made herself!) of the United States map! She put it in a frame and used hearts to represent places her and her family has lived. I knew I wanted to do something with her amazing silhouette cut right away!
So I grabbed a couple pallets, tore them apart and put them back together, I stained the pallet and then I cut out the United States map on my silhouette with vinyl. I removed the inner cuts, so that I would be left with just the outline of the map. Then I layed it down on the pallet and painted it white. I used push pins to mark the places we've lived and kept it pretty simple.

I loved this to a million pieces and want to order 55 of them to give as gifts to all of my family! LOL Seriously though, this is a very special pieces, thank you so much for sharing it with all of us! I love the dark wood background again the white map! TDF!

Here is the project from Barbara that inspired her piece:
