Mother’s Day Word Collage

I was racking my brain yesterday to come up with a Mother's Day project... and then I saw this idea at Projects, Pinching Pennies, and Plugging Along and knew I could adapt it for Mother's Day.
Here is what I came up with! In Photoshop, I created this image with words that described my Mom.  I used the names of my Dad, me, and all of the kids in my family.  I printed the picture last night at Costco and bought a frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.  (Score!)  I just added paper to the mat board in the frame, a little bit of ribbon, and ta-dah!  I love how it turned out, and I plan on doing one for Father's Day also.  

So for free download Friday, I created a Mother word collage--BUT it is not specific.  I took off all the names of people in my family and made it a bit more generic so it could fit a lot of the sweet mothers out there.  It looks like this:
You can download the full image here.  I designed it to be 5x7, so if you're going to print off a different size you'd probably have to re-format it.  I hope someone out there can use this... let me know if you do!  I'd love to see!
It feels so good to have Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts already planned.  Normally I don't plan this far in advance!  :)  Happy Friday!!
