Family Ties

This summer is going to be a special one for me. My oldest son, Dave, is getting married in July. My mom and I recently went to San Diego to surprise him and his fiancee by showing up at her bridal shower. It was the first time I can remember that he was speechless!! I made him even more speechless by handing over my camera to a complete stranger to take photos. His nickname for me is mommarazzi, and he pretends to be embarrassed by all the photos that I take.

Today I am showing you an altered canvas that I made for my mom to commemorate our trip to San Diego together. I used Amy's wonderful KNK kit from March 2010. There is a little bit of stamping ( I used TH distress ink in spun sugar on those wonderful Petaloo Color Me Crazy flowers) but it is so pale it hardly shows in the photo.

Being sentimental, I used my new TH butterfly die to reflect the theme of my boys' metamorphosis into a new stage of his life (sappy, but totally me).

I know that you usually expect me to do a card, but I have been away and was moved to make this for my mom. Sometimes it is good to share with friends :)
Until next week....
