Our Christmas card!

Every November I start to stress about getting a good photo of the boys for our Christmas card. I always breathe a sigh of relief when I get one without having to take them to a professional studio. I took this one in front of our tree and after many takes and some creative editing with Picasa and Photoshop, I like the way it turned out! Phew...we're good for another year! I usually do a little layout with the pic for the card but I thought this one stood well enough on it's own. I used Atomic Cupcake's Gold action on the letters and the font is Black Jack.
I realize I've been posting so infrequently these days but I hope that will change soon. Just a busy time of year and not much inspiration to design anything new. I did however choose to participate in the 'Christmas Around The World' free mega kit that will hit the blogs of many designers on Dec 10th. I will be one of the blogs with a goodie to give away so be sure and check back here on the 10th (or sooner if I get my creative juices flowing before then with something else) Thanks for stopping by and I'll chat with you soon ~C

Your Christmas picture of the boys is great, know how hard it is to even get one to look good without having 2 looking just right.
