Grandparents gift - final picture added

Okay, here's the matted and framed finished gift. Wink I couldn't use the mat that came with the frame, as it wasn't for a true 8x8 photo ... I'm happier with the red anyway.

---------------------------------------

I did a photo shoot with my kids and made an 8x8 photo collage for my parents and DH's mom. I just need to get an 8x8 frame (unless I mat it on a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and use a 12x12 frame - which should I do?)

It is hard to get kids to cooperate in front of the camera!

Very cute! I would be tempted to matte it and do it 12x12 do you don't lose any of the collage.

How cute, they will sure love it. the twelve by twelve is a good idea, that way you get a really nice size.

I found a 10x10 frame that came with a white mat for 8x8 - SWEET! I thought 12x12 would be too much mat, ya know? I literally just walked in the door with it, so I don't know how it looks together yet. But I think it will look good. It's a beveled mat too.

I'll take a picture once I put it together. I only have one print so far - had it printed just to make sure it came out good. Gotta love Costco and their inexpensive prints. Wink

Thanks for the wonderful comments, makes me feel good.

It is so hard to get them to all look at the same time. A story board is a perfect way to get them all in on a gift without expecting them all to look at the Carma and smile at the same time. Well done!!

wow! That really looks better than if you went to a portrait studio Gwen! I love it! If we lived closer I'd pay you to take K's pics.
