Krista at Cheapie Cheapie made this great silhouette of her daughter for her mom for Mother’s Day and gave it a nice twist by using pretty scrapbooking paper for the background. I have been meaning to make silhouettes of my boys because I just love those little chubby cheeks and I think they need to be preserved in black paper!! Thanks for sharing, Krista!
