The only thing better than having you as a Mother...

Hi all - 

I made a canvas for a co-worker who needed a birthday present for her Mom! So I grabbed some paint, mists, and Prima goodies that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com and went to town! 

(The photos are blacked out for my co-workers Mom and daughter's privacy) 



The quote reads: "The only thing better than having you as a Mother, is knowing that my daughter has you as a Grandmother."




Some people have asked is this is my handwriting on here. No.  It isn't. It's a cheap alpha stamp set from Michael's (their name brand stuff) - it wasn't easy either - since I am working on canvas and they are cheap stamps - I had to do each letter individually! lol - yes, I am CRAZY! ;)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
