31 Days To Get A Jump Start On Christmas: Choose or Schedule Your Christmas Card Photo

Today's task is a little more involved then yesterdays, remember you can make it as easy or difficult as you choose :)  

  
A note on looking through photos:  There is a extreme danger of losing sight of your objective (and also a hefty chunk of time) when you enter the realm of "memory lane".  Case and point: every time I am cleaning and come across a photo album or scrapbook from my past, progress instantly halted :P  You've been warned :)
Don't get sucked into the thought that it MUST be a professional photo.  If you happen to have one, then great!!  But you can make a great card with a snapshot too.  I straight up used a poorly lit phone photo for my cards last year and they turned out great because it showed my girls with some sincere Christmas cheer!

Do you have dreams of going BIG this year?  Yeah you, you know who I'm talking to.  I can see that twinkle in your eyes of a Cricut-cut banner that spells out Merry Christmas, or an oversized funky picture frame to hold while your standing in some dreamy orchard or matching chevron scarves for the whole family . . . I know you've pinned 12 different possibilities for your Christmas Card Photo.  Your mission today:  choose your prop or your plan and get your hands on it, if that means you've gotta make something, then make it, if that means you've gotta place an order for color coordinated sweaters, then do it!  We both know you're gonna end up doing it anyways, so why not sooner :)

  1. Going big? Twinkle in my eye? Me? Lol, I felt like you were talking directly to me. By the way, your "poorly lit" photo card from last year was one of my favs.
