Pay It Forward: Gift #3

This gift had to travel all the way to Utah! I hear they've received it FINALLY and am so excited to share it with you!
I've been friends with Scott for a long time. I remembered that his favorite hymn was "Families Can Be Together Forever" and his wife, Kristin, does their family blog, which is called "Our Familyz Forever." I figured that would be a great theme for my gift to them!
Kristen had some super great photos taken around Christmas time (I think!) and I loved this one. I actually want to get one with Dale, Brighton and I like it.
So, I did some tweaking in Picasa- made it black and white and increased both shadows and highlights. Then I painted that image onto a canvas! Pretty fun, I think. I'm definitely going to make something like this again.
Kristin, Scott, and Emily I'm glad to hear you enjoy your new gift!
Reminder: I haven't seen any blog news about other Pay It Forward gifts going out. Get your butts in gear! It's already June and you only have until the end of the year!

way to be on top of it Kim! Yes I do need to get in gear although I only have one more to do since only 4 people commented on my giveaway. Lucky me I guess. Great job on the canvas painting. very cool.

Well - I only had 2 people tell me they would do the pay it forward from my blog ):

And I made a gift for one of them - but forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to her! my bad! It was a cute little 3x3 scrapbook for her to put pictures of her kiddo's in. Bangin' my head against a wall - why didn't I take a photo of it?!!!
