This is my first time posting on craftster!  While this wasn't a craft made by hand so much it was really fun to do on the computer and turned out to be an excellent gift for under $10 frame included.  I used this for all of my fathers day/mothers day gifts and they all loved their mosaic pictures.  I downloaded a program for free from:
This program was very user friendly/free to use/and virus free...what more can you ask for?  For each one of my mosaics I used 300-400 pictures which made the repetition of using the same picture over and over much better.  The more pictures you have to use the more original the picture turns out.  There is also an option of using 1000 1500 or more pictures to create the picture you want. 
I filled each picture full of adorable grandchildren and their parents of course and picked a favorite theme for the main picture.  For one picture I used a black and white picture of the moon, another I used a dog, and for the cheesier grandparents I used a picture of them and kept it in color.
This took at least 3 hours between figuring out the program and finding that many pictures and organizing them into one folder to download, but it was totally worth it, fun and inventive.  What parent/grandparent doesn't want hundreds of pictures of adorable children?

Wow!  That's amazing.  No matter what I do on the computer, I stay on for hours and hours, so this project is perfect for me!  I'll have to check out the program.  Thanks for sharing.
