This is what my husband and I gave my Papa for Christmas. He's 80-something now, but I'm not sure how old the photo is. The large pic is my Papa and his Mom (my great-granmother!) and was scanned and enlarged to about 7x7. It was originally b&w, but sepia looked better on this I thought. The other two pics were actually in color, but I changed the bottom one to sepia b/c it had too much white. I really feel like I needed to do more, but I was finishing it after DH and I were suppose to have left so he could go to work, so I had to stop with this. (I must give credit to DH---he helped wire the 3d elements on to the board.) Technically I could add more next time I visit, so let me know what you think.
NJStampinMom, I read the comment on the twine too late. Twine wouldn't hold it's shape alone, but I may go back and wrap the wire with twine
