Give Thanks Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the Give Thanks Blog Hop. I hope you enjoyed your hop yesterday and are back for day 2. I just loved everyone's projects. Seeing everyone's projects always gets my mind to thinking. I have some new ideas for when I get back into a classroom.

Today's project is about something I am thankful for - my family. My husband and I can't have children so we spend a lot of time with our 4 nieces. Last night I had a date with my 11 year old niece, Hannah. She is a soccer player - which makes Uncle Vince proud. Uncle Vince played soccer past college. He officiates today. Oklahoma State University is playing in the Women's NCAA Soccer Tournament. They are playing just over an hour away. Last night I took Hannah to the game. I had so much fun with her. If my 6 year old niece, Heidi, had not been ill I would have taken her too. She is just getting into soccer. She is soooo fun to watch. Both their teams this fall went undefeated.

My oldest niece, Holly, is 17. I can't believe she will be a Senior next year. I tear up thinking about it now. She is a cheerleader, basketball player, pole vaulter, runner,  etc. This year during a football game someone snapped of picture of Holly kissing her baby sister Henley. The picture just melts my heart. Henley is 3 and is growing up way to fast. Last night I thought how big/old she is looking. No more baby Henley.

I love pictures done on multiple canvases. I took the picture of Holly and Henley...
cropped it an blew it up to 12.75 inches by 12.75 inches. I used my photo editing program and divided the picture into nine 4.25 inch squares and attached them to tiles. I am excited about the way they turned out and have ideas to do more with different pictures. I am looking forward to doing the picture of me kissing my grandfather at my wedding.

These nine pictures...(sorry for the blurriness)

 go together to make...
