Intro: A Gift From the Heart

Low-to-no budget for Valentine's Day this year? With just a little time, you can make a gift that shows her/him you truly care! For those of you who don't know, Google Maps has a feature that enables you to make a custom map in just a few easy steps. Using this feature, one can create an 'e-scrapbook'-type map of locations related to your relationship that only matters to you!

Please vote for me in the Valentine's Day Challenge! Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback! I'll add some screenshots of what I did soon to help give people a better idea of the possibilities!

    This is a fantastic idea, thank you. I think in order to make people understand the possibilities, it would be nice to have some close screen-shots of example 'scrapbooky' type posts.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that, if you have access to a computer the only cost of this project is the time you are willing to put into it, and the cost to print one sheet of paper if you choose to gift it as a QR code.

    Some people find "free" to be the same as "cheap", I wouldn't...
