Here is another gift I made this year. I am pretty happy with how they turned out. I would have rather framed them but for the sake of the cost, this was the better route this year.
All I did was take a side profile photo of each of my darlings and upload it to my computer. Then I had my WONDERFUL Graphic Designer Hubby outline the photo and fill it in. (I think I would die if my husband ever changed professions. He really should start charging me. I use his services more than all of his clients put together!) He uses CS3 and this is incredibly easy... if you know what you are doing. :-)
