Collage of My Daughters Early Years to the Present

This top photo is current years and the bottom collage in the frame My daughter's 40th birthday will be celebrated tomorrow night with family and friends. I am making a collage of photos from birth to now. First is a collection of her early years. Sweet to see her infancy with great grandparents and grandparents, parents, big brother, friends; in my nursery school with my best friend Patty who worked it with me when she turned 2; the year she lived in Israel with her father and step mother age 9-10; time spent with cousins at family holidays; etc. Sweet to do this...brings back lots of nice memories. The bottom collage within the collage is photos taken the past several years in her adult life with families, friends, her children, grandparents, parents, and siblings. Today I framed the 2 collages: early years and current years and found some very fitting quotes that say a lot about family and life. Tell me what you think? Double click to read the quotes by famous people or annonymous This of course is the finished gift. Each small collage is 8" X 10" in size, the whole black wooden frame is 16" X 20".
