Canvas Family Tree

Over Spring Break, we had a bunch of family in town.  I have been throwing the idea around to do something crafty for a family tree and decided on the following:

Nothing fancy, just took some basic canvas paints, canvases and painted some trees on each canvas.  Then Since I had so much family here at the time, we each put a green fingerprint on a branch and I wrote initials and birthdays next to each 'leaf'.

I ended up making 4 of these with my Sister in Law and she took 2 back to some of our family where she lives so they can add on to them.

Here's ours:
This certainly looks like a 'Spring' tree, but by the end of this summer we should have almost ALL of our living family's fingerprints (on both sides)!!!  That is an additional 23 prints!!!  Nice and full :)
