In this world of digital photos, digital music, digital TVs and stuff (i'm not that technical…sorry!), I'm still embracing the digital scrapbooking! And this year, for my Christmas Cards, I'm going digital again! I actually just ordered them from Winkflash…at 60% off!! 75 4×8 cards for $26! I'm excited!!!

start with a great pic of your fam!

It took us a while to actually have our schedules in sink with each other!! Yesterday was the first day in a long time that we had a little time to do this photo shoot! I love this pic!!

Throw a Pioneer Woman action on the pic. I used Seventies and Boost.

Open up your Photoshop (or whatever editing program you use!) and create a NEW file 4inx8in.

Not really into the digital?????

Here's a fun, quick (sorta!) tradition most kids love to do during this season:

It's at this point that you want to wait probably overnight for the frosting to really set!!

Otherwise you'll have what we had…

the Hurricane House!!

Here's how we decorated it:
