So read about this in the Big Ass Book Of Crafts and decided to try...

TADA!!!





Right to left...Mary, Kelly, Rebekah, and Kenny



And this is just me




I made them for my mom for mothers day and the "mat" is a page ripped out of a book.

Now, I buy A LOT of cheap books from thrift stores and i got mixed up and ripped pages out of "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" which i hadn't read yet. Turns out it is my moms favorite book! so yeah...I'm pretty awesome!

Oh yeah if the pics don't work here are some links:

wow...those look great! I love silhouettes (hate to spell the work tho...) Did you use a projector, or some other method?
Also, did you know that "In God we trust, all others pay cash" is what "a Christmas Story" is based off of? I bet you did.... Wink

It was so easy!

I took profile pics of everyone. Then cut them out (leaving ALL details, eye lashes, glasses, hair)

Then i spray painted the actual picture black.


Viola! (sp?)   Grin
