An inexpensive Christmas idea: a scrap book page family tree

I finished another Christmas gift last night for my grandma, a scrap book page family tree with pictures of all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A family tree - the colours show up more in real light
I found this idea on the Crafting a Green World Blog I had been wanting to make one of these for a little while but it was not until I found some frames at my local dollar store that I finally got my act together to do this.

To show how inexpensive this was here is a breakdown.

Frame : 2 $
Scape paper: 2$
Circle cutter: already owned
Leaf shapes: 3$ from ebay  (cheaper than buying a punch and I have tones left I could more than I would ever want with all the leaves I got)
Photos: I printed from my own printer it only took 3 4x6 sheets and since my ink is inexpensive ( under 30 for colour and black) the total cost is probably way under 2$

my total out of pocket cost was 7$  and for 2$ each I could make many more before I would need to buy supplies again.( I will be trying to make another few in the next few days.
