Cherish Moment

For the longest time, I have been wanting to do something with some of our old childhood photos. Some photos have become rather fragile and faded over time. Yet, these are the ones that have the most memories for me and my family. Over the holiday, I made one of the photos into a canvas print. First I scanned the old photo to my computer and then changed the faded color photo into black and white via Photoshop and cropped to my desired image. Then the folks at Bags of Love printed the photo onto a canvas for me. I got two 30x30cm square canvas for myself and Savvy Sis. My niece was amazed auntie and mommy was that little once. We wanted to tell her mommy and auntie weren't always this big and grandma was young once too. I am so glad I am able to do this. Next, I will put my parents' old wedding photo onto canvas so Savvy Mom can display it. How do you preserve cherish moments?

  3. I LOVE having the ability to put photographs on canvas - my mom has had quite a few of my nephews photographs preserved that way. :)
