I saw an idea that I really liked, and decided to try this year - combining our annual family letter with a picture card! Sometimes it is hard to come up with a letter....if I am in a 'detail-oriented' mood then I can't seem to fit it all on one page! Or I have a hard time picking out what was 'newsworthy' and interesting, and what was just typical family stuff.
Combining them into one item gave me a way to list some of the highlights and memories of the year, while also including some real life, everyday pictures, as well as some Christmas sentiments.
Plus..... anyone who has a blog AND uses Shutterfly.... if you embed your finished project onto your blog, they will send you a $10 gift certificate! Since I still have a Christmas present to make on Shutterfly, I decided to take advantage of this great deal and share my family Christmas card with you!
