One thing I am doing for Christmas this year is making the children in my family personalized coloring books. This is so easy and quick. If you have Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop you can use that, but I am using this free program to turn pictures into sketches that look like coloring pages.

I will find pictures of the child and do a whole book of just him or her. I plan on making a cover that will say something like "_____'s Coloring Book" or something and having it laminated. Our local office supply store charges .75 per foot for lamination.

Here is an example of how the pages come out using a picture of my own kids.

When I first saw this, I thought it was cute.  I also found out that I have picked my cousin's 3 yr old daughter for a grab bag gift.  I decided to see what I could come up with.  I ended up using 2 different programs to get the result I wanted.  This is what I got:

Firefox users can right-click and view image to see full sized.
Now I don't think it's cute ... I think it's an amazing idea!  Thank you so much for this idea!!

I may also have to make one for my kids, too!  Cheesy  They have been stealing my test images and coloring and painting on them.
