    Cool! Reminds me of a school project we did many years ago.

    That's where I got the idea! I remember doing silhouettes in third grade and thought it was a lot of fun. I'm just glad there was an easy solution for getting my squirmy kids' profiles.

    These were very popular in the sixties. I've always liked them.

    They are a lot of fun and were a cheaper alternative to a professional family portrait. :)

    I bet they were fun to make Rachael. I'm sure you're family likes having a place of honor on your walls. Where is Jewell, IA? I've never heard of it before. I'm from eastern Iowa and also lived in Des Moines.
