    This took me about 6-8 hours over a few nights to complete. It will be in a frame and presented to them at their 30th anniversary dinner. The right side is mostly my Dad and his family and the left side if my Mom and her family.

    I started with the picture in the center of my dad in the white suit (seated) with my Mom standing behind him and just cut and pasted until it was done.

    My sister and I have been tearing our hair out over what to do for our parents 25th. I can't dig up enough pictures to do something like that. I think they might get a card and a Sears gift certificate. :haha:

    Collage looks good

    I got off easy on my parents 25th... Just moved 2500 miles away, barely started a new job, so just getting home was a gift enough, then I made a speech at their party, got loaded drunk, and went home with the waitress/bartenderess.

    What a great gift idea--I'm sure they'll really enjoy it. My wife is a big scrapbooker and for Christmas she gave me and my dad a calendar she built online at the Creative Memories website with family photos-captions underneath-the works. Definitely my favorite gift and a great suprise. I took mine to work, keep it in the toolbox.

    That is a great idea. My wife's cousin did something similar for her and it is they only gift from her my wife could tell you instantly where it is. I'm sure they will love it.

    It's 1600x1200, I downsized it to post it here.

    Thanks for the kudos, guys. Yeah I did it with my trusty flatbed scanner and Photoshop in case there's confusion. I'm not very good with scissors and paste :haha:

    You're right about him being my Uncle. That's my Uncle Rick, my Mom's brother. I have no idea who Potsie is...
