3-D PHOTO BRIGADE PROJECT
My friend Steve had the nervous habit of cutting out photos of people and standing them up on his desk. It was the strangest thing I’d ever seen but I loved it so much I asked to borrow the idea. I think it’s a great way to show off your photos in a very different way. I like being surrounded by a crowd when I’m at my desk. I also like to think about my family and friends and see their smiling faces. It just makes me feel great.

SUGGESTION: Do the photos on your computer!
