A few weeks ago my mom turned 70. We wanted to give her something special, something to show her what she means to us.
I googled ideas and found this great idea from the blog Sometimes Creative
The idea is to get reasons from everyone in your family why you love that person.
There are 10 of us if you include the dog-haha. Everyone had the easy task of coming up with 7 reasons. We all could have done much more!
This was done in a photo editing program and consists of 17 layers (after editing). The original idea is sans photos. Since there were only ten of us I decided to an a picture of each.
When I was satisfied with the results I saved it as a .jpeg and a pdf as well as the editable file (in case anything needed to be tweaked.)
The final picture was printed on 14"x17" paper and framed with matt in a 16"x20" frame.
We presented the gift to Mom on Father's Day (a little belated). The response from her was well worth the hours and days of work that went into it. Her reaction was priceless! I don't think I have ever been a happier as the gift giver. Mom loves her gift and proudly has it hung in her home.
Mom we love you! 70+ reasons...
If you are interested in having a poster like this made for someone you love, I would be happy to discuss the details to create one for you.
