Christmas Photo Shoot...

Shawna wanted me to take the kids Christmas pictures. And so here are a few of good ones, it is a job getting both kids to look at you at the same time and Smile. I am not claiming to be any great photographer, if anyone has advice on how to make these photos or the next ones I take better I will gladly listen to your advice.

On a different note Shari asked what I used to make the letters on my canvas to I will answer her question. I used Provo Craft Adhesive Backed Vinyl, which I found at Wal-Mart but I know Hobby Lobby has it. The vinyl comes in many colors and the price is pretty reasonable. I then used my Cricut machine to cut out the letters. If any of you do a lot of crafting or scrapbooking a Cricut is a very good investment, it save a ton of time cutting out shapes and letters. Hope this answers you question, if anyone else has questions about my projects feel free to ask.

Cute pictures! It looks like you had fun editing them too!

I love the way those letters work! Did you use the same method for your kitchen above the stove?

The letters above the stove were already made. I bought them at Hobby Lobby, they have many different saying and are very easy to put up.

Brittany, you would love a Cricut with all the scrapbooking and stuff you do, it is well worth the money. Tell Santa you have been a good girl this year.
