So this year I wanted to give my BFF something unique and meaningful for Christmas.....and this is what I came up with:


I made these silhouettes of her 3 kiddos with some pics I lifted from her Facebook and some scrapbooking paper I had on hand. I found these awesome 12x12" frames that were perfect for them, then added black ribbon bows to hang them by. Here are a few close-ups (sorry for the crappy pics):




(the background has a very subtle pattern, but it didn't translate too well in the photo)


(not sure what that green dot is on her face -- must've been on the camera lens)

I'm happy with how they came out and can't wait to give them to her tomorrow! What do you think? C+C welcome.  Cheesy

What a thoughtful gift! I'm certain that they will be treasured. I really like the background papers you chose - they are just right.

My parents had a silhouette done of me when I was much younger and it's still hanging in their house Smiley.

Thanks, everyone! Smiley I'm happy to report that she LOVED them....they are already hanging on the living room wall in a "stair step" configuration and look so cute!
