Silhouettes {hand cut}

During our Disney trip the Mr surprised me with silhouettes that were hand cut of both Ellie and KJ. It took me some time to figure out where I wanted to hang them, but settled on the tv room. I love the way they look against our dark walls. It really is an amazing process it took to create these. A man actually used scissors and cut every detail while staring at the profile of Ellie and KJ. It really was awe inspiring. Would this not be spectacular to do at a wedding? Anyhow, here are my new treasures.

 And here is the master at work...

Really lovely. What a great way to capture just how your children are at this age.

So precious. I had some made of my kids last year, and I treasure them as well!

Love! We had one done of Reese last Fall here in Auburn. I was amazed at how quickly the man was able to cut it. Such a special piece of art!

teehee my mother still has the ones she had done of my sister and me so many years ago. I love to look at them. Love Disney World.

I love your new treasures! I actually remember having mine done when I was about 6 or 7 and we had our kids done when they were little. I hung them just recently in our all black powder room. Yours look beautiful!

We have had Disney silhouettes made of our children for years - from Disneyland. I always ask them to paste the image on the reverse side, which is plain white.

I have enjoyed catching up on your blog this morning!
