And who has children who look for something new to play with?

News 12 Morning Show Face Mix-Up

Did you ever wonder what Elizabeth, Carol, Rich and Elisa would look like with all their facial features all mixed up together?

I took their beautiful headshots from News 12 Long Island and cut their faces up with a scissor. I separated the top of the head, eyes, nose and mouth (including the top of their body).

Then time to Mix-  It Up:

I cut some of the pieces and left others whole to then glue together to make a “new” news anchor.

Elizabeth thought this was hysterical and I can’t wait to see the other anchors reaction to this.

family and/ or friends.
