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.

Birthday Card for Aunt

My Aunt's birthday is on Christmas Eve and I wanted to try out the paper roses that are such a big hit right now.  (thanks to Tracey Mason I believe for the tutorial).
I embossed the front of the CTMH acrylic card and then added the roses.
