Our Story Canvas

Hello again! Back with another canvas project I have made my mom for her birthday. Altho I have to say.... this one I am loathe to let go, it may be one of my favorite layouts I have ever done to date. I was wanting to make her a couple of canvases for her birthday, originally I was planning on doing matching canvases of her 3 grandkids, but just couldn't find the pictures that worked for what I wanted to do (I am hoping my sister in law is going to help me with that this weekend!!) And I kept looking at this photo that my sis in law took of us....goodness... 5 years ago?!?! Crazy.... Anyhow, this is what came out of it. I so want to KEEP IT! 

The photo just does not seem to do it justice. It's a 12x12 thick canvas, but I put that crocheted lace that I have painted Brown around the edge of the canvas so it sticks out nearly an inch on all sides. Then I've used some AWESOME papers by Theresa Collins (I am not happy that the name of the paper line has escaped thru one of the large black holes in my brain.... argh! it's beautiful and has a lot of Chalk like aspects to it!).

Anyhow, I hope you like it as much as I do...and well, I hope my mom gets to keep it! hahaaa
