Each year I make something for my Mom and my MIL as their Christmas gift. In fact, it is expected of me. This year I made my Mom this wall-hanging. It is made from and old window and I scrapbooked a page for each pane of the window. Good thing I bought 2 of these windows so I can make one for myself now...LOL
Pane 1 - My DD shooting Archery for 4-H
Pane 2 - My DS shooting Archery for 4-H
Pane 3 - Both kids with backpacks on the 1st day of school, the file folders have a personal message to my Mom from both kids.
Pane 4 - Both kids in their Santa hats last Christmas, one of my favorite photos of them.
Pane 5 - both kids singing at our 150th year celebration of our Church, my Mom loves for them to sing at Church.
Pane 6 - My DH, DD, DS and myself at my nursing graduation.
I copied all photos in Black and White to go along with the old frame look and so I could use coordinating papers without having to worry about color in the photos clashing. The only thing I did to the window was scrape as much of the paint off as I could and clean it up. I'm not sure what else I need to do with it to preserve the photos.
