I'm sure you've seen similar ideas out there but this is an easy and inexpensive gift that dads and grandfathers will cherish. Here's how I made mine:
1. I took a series of pictures of Gabrielle and Alaina holding a blank piece of poster board. (I knew there was no way to get two one-year-old to sit nicely together holding a letter!)
2. I picked the four shots I liked best and added the letters and punctuation onto the blank poster board using Photoshop. If you don't have Photoshop, you can achieve the same effect by using Picnik, which is free.
3. I printed out the photos, arranged them in a four-windowed frame (I wanted both girls in there twice, hence the exclamation point) and wrapped it up!
My husband loved his gift (and so did my dad who got his own version which is a benefit of using the blank poster board - you can switch up the letters easily) and immediately hung it in his office. I've decided to do another one this year so eventually we'll have a Dad's Day gallery to look back on.
