Panic Attack

I messed up royally when I ordered our Christmas cards this year. I chose the Santa Penguins card from Exposures Online. I knew that the picture had to placed horizontally only for this card. I forgot that the picture I had was vertical, with no way to crop to make horizontal. We rarely have a picture with the 5 of us together. Here's the picture I wanted to send to our family and friends. This was taking at big bro's wedding in Charlotte back in June.



I went into panic mode...what was I to do??? I wasted a morning driving around to stationery shops to find an alternative card...I wasted another few hours checking sites online. My sister brought me back to earth when she suggested I use one of her favorite pictures of my kids on the front of the card and then insert the family picture inside the card. Duh...why didn't I think of that?!?!?!

So, this is the picture I am going to use on the card....



And...everyone will get the bonus family photo inside the card! What do you think?

Oh...Do you want to know the funny thing about these cards I ordered from Exposures??? I ordered the same card last year. LOL...I must've really liked them. Do you think anyone will remember?

Good idea sis. My mom did the same thing- a pic on front and then a collage of pics to insert on the inside. Love the pic of the kids hugging. SO SWEET!

No one is going to remember the card from last year. I will be the one to remember though next year when we order our cards. :)

I love, love, love that picture of those shorties. I like the family one too, but the trio captures them perfectly.

What a beautiful photo! Aren't sisters the best! I am sorry to hear about your panic attack, but it makes me feel better that I am not the only one with Christmas card drama!

Have a great day!
