Canvas board craft project

I saw this idea on one of my favorite sites "Scrapbooks Etc." and thought it would be a great gift for my cousin's 1st Birthday. It was very inexpensive to make too! I bought an 18x22 canvas board at A.C. Moore on doorbuster this morning for $14, regular $22. The 2x2 paper squares were cut from various types of scrapbook paper and I used a hot glue gun to adhere them to the board. (since I had all of the paper, not sure what the cost would have been) All of the stickers and brads I bought either on clearance or doorbuster this morning and they all came to about $10. Therefore, the grand total was around $25. I had a lot of fun making this and I'm in the process of thinking of other ways to make this for different age groups.
The color in the pictures looks girly, but they are really reds, greens, blues & oranges for a boy.
