I made a fun, framed photo spread of my son for my mother-in-law's gift. Hubby didn't actually know his mom's favorite color -- typical for a guy, eh? -- so I picked some bright blues, greens, and rust colors to give it a modern, but eclectic, feel:
- Papers - patterns by My Mind's Eye: Bohemia; cardstock by Recollections
- Cricut Cuts - font and heart bookplate from Doodletype
- Embossing - hearts with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots
- Other - 8x10 frame from Big Lots; thread from stash
My little guy and I had a blast this weekend taking photos in the backyard and then printing them from our computer in sepia tones. I wasn't trying to make an affordable gift, but this framed photo collage was low-cost if you're on a budget for Mother's Day gifts. Since I didn't send the photos to a photo center for processing, the only expense was the frame -- which was a steal for just $2.50!
So often, I'm not sure what to get my mom-in-law -- someone who has everything -- but what grandma doesn't enjoy photos of her pride and joy? Especially if it's lovingly made with tender cropping care? :)
