Homemade Mother's Day Canvas
I made a canvas layout for my mom for Mother's Day. I tried to use many pictures showing smart looking women. To me, my mom is a "Woman of Substance". She made so much of a difference in my life, so I wanted to show how bold she was, how charming she was and above all how kind she was.. :) This layout is for my mom.. :)
