Photo Project

I started this project back in August. AUGUST PEOPLE!!!! That's like 8 freakin months ago!
This gift was/is for my Grandfather who's big 80th Birthday was in Sept. I couldn't make it to Ohio for the big gathering, so I was going to make a special gift for him.

This gift involved all 14 Grandkids to send me pictures of themselves to create it. Do you think that happened? Nope. Not in my fam. About half participated, and those that did, sent me like the bare minimum of pictures needed!!!!

To do this, you will need:

Zots (glue dots) and this circle hole puncher I got from Michaels. 
A frame of your choice. And a printer to print everyone's pictures!

My cousin E and I are the oldest Grandkids. We are the same age, only he was born a few months before me. That makes him the oldest boy grandchild ( currently age 29) and me the oldest of the girls( currently 28) E has a daughter who is my Grandfather's first great grand child. So I included her too in the pictures. She's the youngest one if you couldn't already tell. :)


Guess what F I N A L L Y comes out today!?!?!?!?! Hint : My fave books as a teen. Remember that Post?
