For those of you with access to Adobe Photoshop or know your way around Gimp, you might want to frame a picture of you and Mom. Trust me. These always go over very well. 7 steps:

(1) To begin, choose a picture. One with you and Mom. Easy enough.

(2) Then, to turn that ordinary photo into an extraordinary photo, I recommend checking out Blurbomat’s Adobe Photoshop Tutorial. I’m not that skilled, but I was able to go from (below) to (further below):

Then, (3) save the final image on a cd or usb disk or other memory card, (4) go to your local printing shop, (5) get it nicely printed to your liking, (6) go and buy a nice frame, and (7) either ship it or deliver it.

Done!
