Christmas Photo Display

While I was away with the family in Darwin, naturally Jas and I organised for the kids to have their photo taken with Santa. Here are my three children, smiling away together. I'm really happy, this is the first year where Jas and I have NOT had to be in the Santa photo to placate an upset child. For us, it was very exciting!

Each year, I remove the previous years Santa photo from it's frame and scrapbook it. I then place the new Santa photo into the frame and place it on (usually) the buffet. This year, our 5x7 photo was a little smaller than last years 6x8, so I needed to matt it to fit the frame. I thought I'd begin the scrapbooking process by matting decoratively. Then, next year when I'm ready to commit this photo to a scrapbook, the process will take just a few minutes.

Although simple, I'm really happy with how this turned out. I think the simplicity here will allow me, next year, the freedom to add a header, journalling and embellishments to tie the photo and current matt on a 12x12 page. I hope you like this idea!

Just lovely Nerine!
Miss Luana didn't want to go ANYWHERE near the man in red this year, so no photo for us :-(
