Voila! Way easier than
Photos, scissors, black construction paper, crafting glue and some cheapy Goodwill frames ($0.99 each). I cut out each child being careful around the lips and nose so that the detail there would carry over. Another little hint is to cut the neckline in a scoop rather than a harsh line.

Another little hint is to add some luscious eye lashes on the cut out version. I free hand drew some in. These children were blessed with gawjus lashes, but that didn't quite transfer in the photo and without them added in then you miss that depth to the silhouette.
|See the eyelashes!!|
I repeated the same process for Miles, but I felt the need to add a little something extra to differentiate the two. Enter Miles naturally growing faux hawk. This kid is growing his own DIY version of the popular faux hawk. I figured since we laugh about it now, why not add that humor to this shot too!

Lastly I applied a few light dots of my crafting glue and adhered them to some white card stock. A little Windex to clean up my Goodwill frames......
Love love love. I am contemplating two different spots in the house.....Need. To. Decide. Oh and because I felt I couldn't waste those sweet lil' floating baby heads.....
Notice Miles is exclaiming "Mom Rocks"!! Moohahahahahahahaha!!
UPDATE! I found a spot to hang my "cuties". I decided to place them with the spoon they each had their first solid food with!
