He then told me it was a great take on carpe diem or seize the day – I had not thought of that but I guess so.

I have recently favorited ones by Aubrey of Aubrey Kinch Design and Lisette of High Note Designs, the lovely ladies behind my blog design, but there are others I like as well. Here are nine of my favorites:
