More canvases!

I made a canvas for each of my girls.  The first was done for my youngest with a quote that I found that reminds me of her.  The photo is one of her with her BFF, Kim.  I used Gimp to make the photo comic book style then added a blue cast to the photo.  The quote was cut out from vinyl with my Cricut and the rest is supplies I had on hand. I picked up the metal tape a long time ago at Big Lots and finally found a use for it.  She loves it - and so does Kim!

The other one was done using one of my favorite pictures from my wedding.  It's my older daughter dancing with my dad.  We lost him to lung cancer in 2004, so this picture is very precious.  The quote I used sums life up pretty well, I think.

The flowers were cut on my Cricut from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge that came with my machine.  (Flower 2)
