My year-in-review holiday card

My son is in the “I don’t want my picture taken” stage, so our holiday photo was difficult (impossible!) to capture. My solution? A year in review collage card.  Take a look at it.

The card is cool, don’t you think?  There are quite a few reasons for the year in review card. First, I don’t have to take any new pictures just collect the best of the best. Second, I don’t even have to send it out in time for the holidays! It could arrive end of December or even January as a Happy New Year card!

Here’s my dilemma…can I do a repeat themed card since I already did a year in review card last year? Hmm…as many of you know I am a rule-oriented girl. I have not imposed a rule about a repeat theme but I haven’t thought about it much either. What do you all think?

    Great idea Kristin… and no I don’t think this idea ever gets old. You could just start a new tradition and mail your cards every January featuring a year in review! This reminds me I probably should start a year in review photobook soon.

    I like this also, we have friends that sent their card where it is a Happy New Year card with different photos and I like that idea. Yours would be good anytime and it gives a keepsake for the families. I also like the ones you can frame, such as a 5 x 7 year in review. Great idea.

    I like this idea Kristin, a lot! I may have to try for next year. I also would like to do a year -in-review book!! I know last year it didn’t work for me to get a photo of my nieces and nephews and myself, so I did a collage 4×8 card with 9 grid card. I used 2 pictures of each child and one of me. I couldn’t find that one this year.
    This year we had one chance to take a photo and ran with it!

    That sure makes putting a card together very easy just by looking for the best shots over a year! I also like making a Happy New Year card. It takes the pressure off of the perfect Christmas card and if get a card after you sent your stack out and there wasn’t one for them you can added them to the Happy New Year card list.
