Its that time of year again. A time when our family is so busy, it becomes hard to get everyone in one place for the family christmas card photo. Solution? I take everyones picture separately then merge them all into one.

Merry Christmas from my family to yours, and may your holidays be filled with laughter and joy!

And now for some bloopers:

I need your help selecting 4-6 images to print nice and big. I’ll be exhibiting at the upcoming Bridal Fair, on Jan. 23rd 2011. Hope you’ll come and stop by, I’ve got a nice treat for those who come and say hi!
