Alrighty, for my project I created a wall hanging for Luka.  I spelled out his name for each panel and used 4 of my favorite Lukas (Fisherman Luka, Luka with Truck, Fireman Luka with Tuffy & Cowboy Luka).  The paper, except for the dark brown cs (Neenah), was from the same paper pad, MME's Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy.  I used the Cricut to cut out the LUKA letters (the font is George and Basic Shapes).  I stamped the wood grain (All Night Media) in Distress Inks Vintage Photo and distressed the edges.  Used the same distress ink to distress the patterned papers.  For the smaller letters I used my Cuttlebug with some Cuttlekids dies.  The panels were all purchased at Big Lots.
