First project of 2009 - Done!

Okay....so after seeing silhouettes of sweet children all over blogland, I knew that I had to do one of each of my boys.

So after coaxing and bribing them to stand against the wall, turn to the side, "STAY STILL FOR A COTTON PICKIN' MINUTE! QUIT JACKIN' WITH YOUR BROTHER!"...deep breath, take about 10 shots of each kid....breathe....

I got this:

and this:

I pulled it into my photo editing software, (AKA Photoshop Elements 4.0) and turned them into this:

Aren't they cute?? I got the frames from Hobby Lobby. The clothespin in the middle was a 2008 project. (click on the picture to enlarge)

Now, I can mark this one off the list of projects. I only have about a bazillion left on there.

What is next on your To Do list?

I LOVE it! I doubt I could get my 3 year old to stand still long enough to take the shot, but it's definitely worth a try!
