Composing the family Christmas card is one of my favorite things to do this time of year, but I get so busy sometimes that it gets moved down the list, until it becomes a last minute rush to get it done. This time we just kept it simple & took a few snap shots of the family on our newly purchased property. The goal was to get a good family photo, but I forgot the tripod clip, so we didn't get one of all four of us. Still, this photo card layout I found on Shutterfly makes for a beautiful family Christmas greeting. I love the effect & I'm able to share it with all my friends and family online, just in case it doesn't make it to your mailbox in time.
