friends are the family you choose

did you have a lovely weekend?
mine was nice and quiet with a mix of resting, church and shopping.

today i wanted to share an altered canvas i made back in the fall for my friend. one of her favorite sayings is "friends are the family you choose" and i wanted to incorporate that into a gift for her birthday. she had hinted before at wanting an altered canvas so i thought that would be the perfect gift. the winter before we ended up at church wearing very similar outfits and so i decided to incorporate that pic into the canvas. here is the pic from that weekend.

i took the pic and printed it out on just regular copy/printer paper to use as a loose template for the clothing styles. i was really happy with how it turned out and she immediately recognized that i'd used the pic as inspiration for this gift!
