Mother's Day Banner

Last night I made this sweet banner for my Mother's Day mantel that I can keep out until I make a Birthday banner! Each picture measures about 7"x5". I love making them!
Below is a picture of my darling Grandmother Alberta. She was a model, here at age 16. Once again..Happy Mother's Day!

The banner is just beautiful! I love old photos. Sometimes I buy them at the antique shop. I have one I picked up that was already framed. New member of the family! It's not true that you can't pick your family!
