I rather like it like that! After all it is a vintage photo. Many congrats to your Mum. Please give her a kiss for me when you see her this week. The important thing is that you made the canvas' and I'm sure everyone was thrilled.

I had to enlarge it to get a good look...the eyes aren't what they used to be...lol - But, I like the look, very nostalgic and the picture is a lovely heirloom...what was your mom's response?

She didn't want to part with them, there were actually 4 different photo's presented in the same way. My niece wanted them and I was happy to let her have them.
