Thanks! I don't have photoshop (I'm sure that would have made it easier!!) I cut everything out of the photo behind us and then made it black and white, I played with the contrast a lot and then went through and deleted all the sections of the photo that I didn't want showing... then I made sure all the black lines were connected. Took FOREVER! But then I printed it out and glued it to the back of the black paper and once I cut it, I peeled it off the black paper.
