A Fun Twist on the Christmas Card Photo

This year I am ON TOP of the whole Christmas Card thing :) Again, my motivation came from the Snapfish B1G2F coupon which worked out REALLY well this year! I got my Thanksgiving photos AND my Christmas Photos out of the way, books and calendars ordered up, a WEEK before Thanksgiving :) YAY ME!

This year I wanted to do something fun.  I saw THIS and THIS on pinterest and LOVED them. I wanted to combine the two somehow so the kids and I came up with our own twist ;-)

 
 
HAHAHA!!! I JUST LOVE THEM! It was a collaboration between all of the kids and I. They wanted to use the reindeer horns/santa hat so we figured a way to incorporate them. They called it a mutiny of sorts, they're "MutanDEERS" LOL!

I had so many options for the last picture I couldn't decide! I just LOVED the eyes on my "Santa" in this one though!
Finding the right card template was harder than I expected with these photos because I wanted them to be big enough to really see the details.  This is the one we ended up going with and I'm happy with it :)

OMG, this is so fun. What a great twist to the typical holiday picture! I'm having a homemade holiday link party with prizes and I thinks this would be a great project to link up. I'd love for you to stop by. Linking ends 12/3/12 at 11:59 pm Eastern time.
