Title: CELEBRATION OF THE LEGACY

collage

While at INSPIRED last weekend, I created a Mother’s Day Collage to based on a kit provided by the super talented memory arts artist, JENNIFER STEWART.

I chose to create this collage as a Mother’s day gift for my Mother.

It includes pictures of each of us all about the same age. My Mother…
mom

my Grandmother….
gramma

and my Great Grandmother “Nana”….

Me…
shawn

I was inspired to do this for my mother…a STRONG WOMAN, who loves and admires each of the women in her life. One day, she can give this piece to one of her granddaughters…
girls

Girls who are lucky to be part of these women’s lives.
