Father's Day Gifts

We all know I love to give personalized gifts.  Homemade.  Usually including some form of picture.  So this Father's Day I racked my brain to figure out what to give Scott from the girls.  And it wasn't until the very last minute that I decided to make this photo on canvas for him.  After taking those photos of the girls in my wedding dress last week and seeing a couple of quotes on other gift ideas online, I decided to make this...

One day when they're in their actual wedding gowns, we can still come home to this.  A keepsake of their childhood.  Of their innocence.  And of their love for their Daddy.

We also made him a frame for his big fish picture...

And lastly, I made another photo on canvas for my dad.  I won't be giving canvases for every holiday, but when I saw this quote somewhere (and I inserted "Grampy" instead of Grandpa), I just thought it suited too well not to use it...

(Excuse the bad picture of this one.  I forgot to take a picture, so I took this in the car on the way)

I would love to one day invest in a cricut or something to make vinyl letters for projects like these.  I actually just made these words in Microsoft Word, copied them into Paint to save them as a picture, then printed them as a picture at Wal-Mart.  But vinyl words would look so much better.  One day.

Unfortunately, I don't even have a picture of Poppie with both girls, together.  I would have loved to give him a gift a like this as well.  But I'm making a mental note to take more pictures of them together.  Sorry Poppie.  I'm sure you will still use the fishing baits we got you.

If you're interested in making a photo on canvas for yourself, feel free to check out this POST for my tutorial.  I also do them for others if you don't have the time or want to bother with it.  I charge $25 for an 8x10 or $30 for 11x14.  Other sizes are available as well.
