Recently, my husbans grandmother passed away and my father-in-law thought I might want the old cardboard picture holders sense I was into photography. Most of the holders still had pictures in them but they were of no significance to the family. So I had the brilliant idea to take photos of my family rough them up so they look like they've been laying around forever and hang them up. I hot glued ribbon to the back and hung them at varying heights along a wall on which I also hung old family baptism dresses and other 'cherished' infant clothing. I even hot-glued buttons to the nail heads.

Wall from the left:

to the right:

Neat tri-fold frame - image toned in PS and printed on photo-canvas:

Girls with Dad - toned in PS and nothing done to it (I figured some photos still come out looking great):

Image printed on granit resume paper and crumpled up and torn:

Image printed on canvas and folded and frade:

I don't know if you've ever noticed how you can sometimes see fingerprints from developers on old shots. After this printed, I simple put a thumbprint on it before it dried:

This one was done in memory of the photos in my Mom's wedding album that we colored on:

These last two were splattered with water:

Wow.  I really like what you did.  If that is your family (I am assuming it is), you have a beautiful family.  I wish I could take pics that good.
