I decided that it would be cute if I made old-fashioned silhouettes of my children-- I started by searching thru hundreds of pictures, to see if I could find side profile shots of each of them--
There were several of Jaxen, because he never seems to be looking at the camera, but he also never seems to be looking ahead either.

So, I decided it would be best, if I just took brand new pictures of them to use. I took the pictures, at the same distance, for each one. Then I printed them off as 8x10's on regular computer paper. Then I placed the printed picture on top of black scrapbooking cardstock, and cut out both pieces together in the shape of their precious little faces.

I realized two things--upon reviewing my shadow-pictures of my babies. 1. Jaxen has a very BIG head. 2. Alexis has her dad's nose and Jaxen has his mom's nose ;) (okay, I already knew that)

So, I had to find frames that would accommodate Jaxen's melon, and ones that would look good in my living room--Off to Target I went. Luckily, I found frames big enough on sale for $4 a piece!!

I used coordinating paper, and filled the frames--I love, LOVE, love them!! Now, to get them hung.

Oh, also- I looked for a family shot that would still look distinguishable in a silhouette, and only could find one so far. I framed that one also, and hope to find another one that will include daddy next time :).
