Very nice.Like how you did the shape. Is there a light behind it?

Nope..just sunlight behind it.... I had a tough time cutting the heart... I found clip art of the frame online and I used GIMP and Inckscape to clean it up... Then used Alphacam to to cut the frame and the picture to shape.... I cut the shape after the picture was engraved in it...

Very nice looking.
I'm not sure I would have taken the divot out of my head.

Gimp and InkScape to make the picture heart shaped..

Photo Vcarve for the picture

I use AlphaCam for the cnc to cut the frame out..
