Hi friends! How are you doing on this Memorial weekend? I just want to take a minute to thank all of our service men and women for what they do for this country each and every day. Thank you for protecting the freedom that we have in this country. My heart goes out to all of those serving currently as well as all of their families, we pray for you all...God Bless You!

A few weeks ago I thought it would be fun to make Whitney a silhouette of Angelina for Mother's Day...I totally cased the idea from Emily...check her cute little blog out here. Here are my little step by step instructions should you feel so compelled to whip this fun little project out too!

It is super hard to take a profile picture of a small child! They are so fast! This picture here was the best that I could come up with. It was even a little blurry but it really doesn't matter as we will be painting it black.

Ok so I just cut her right out of the picture...I even gave her wavy hair in the back!
Then I got out the acrylic paint and a sponge brush and gave her a nice even color.

Taadaa! Here is the end result.
Picture frame...$3
Paint & Supplies...$2
Time to make the project...10 minutes plus drying time
Feeling of satisfaction...priceless!

Thanks for peekin' in on me this weekend! Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day!

Great idea. It looks really good in person too! I love the idea. I will have to try it as Britton gets older. Thank you for a great time this weekend.
