Inexpensive gifts


Here is something that anyone with a camera, computer and printer can do and makes a nice present for parents.

In any photo application you can probably fill in the profile pictures you take with black and make the background whatever colour you like.  I used photoshop elements and the pages app to set up my pages.

My grandkids were very cooperative in letting me take several pictures of them until I got the ones I wanted.

I then had each of them write their names and ages,which I then took pictures of as well. In pages it was easy to make it look like a label. 

I did not take a picture of the final framed product but a simple black  frame seemed best.

The only cost for this present is a little bit of ink and it is so easy to find nice inexpensive frames.

Why not try it yourself?
