Okay, here's the matted and framed finished gift. 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!

Gwen! That's really nice!!! They will LOVE it!!! (I would prob do a 12x12, but that's because I matte everything!)
Custom birth announcements made by me! Check out my Etsy store
How cute, they will sure love it. the twelve by twelve is a good idea, that way you get a really nice size.
I would also go with 12x12 thats just because I like using mats

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.
Thanks for the wonderful comments, makes me feel good.
