My First Challenge - Mary's June Collage Challenge

I've never participated in any of the many wonderful art challenges until now. This is my first time. Mary from Green Paper has a monthly challenge. I loved the images for the "June Collage Challenge" especially the image of the mother and children. I've been collecting images of mothers and children for making personalized family history art. I made a special art piece for my Mother last summer for her 80th birthday and have wanted to make similar ones for a few special family members but haven't got around to it yet. Mary's image is one I've never seen and I thought it would be a good one for getting me started on my other family history art projects.

I've missed the cut off time of having it finished and posted before Wednesday but I wanted to link it to her site anyway. The challenge is to use all three images in some way, any way, and this is what I came up with. Thank you, Mary, for sharing your lovely images!
