About a week ago I purchased a big poster frame. This particular frame had a multiple photo mat. I didn't need the mat for my poster but decided to keep it knowing I'd do something with it.
We started out by picking out pictures. Maddie picked out pictures that were important to her and reflected people she loved (and furry babies), and things she enjoyed doing. It was a trip down memory lane for me since she picked pictures from when she was much smaller. You can either scan the pictures into your computer and print them, or do what I did and send them to photo processing place. All the pictures I ordered cost about eight dollars. We also went through all of Maddie's notebooks and found some drawings and poems. I typed and printed the poetry.
Now we just have to decide where to put it. Since this particular collage mat doesn't have a frame, we'll probably put it up with thumb tacks. It's a bit too heavy for tape.
