I've been a slacker!!!

I've been such a slacker at blogging lately. My daughter had parent teacher conferences last week and although she did well, I still felt like I need to step it up a little when it comes to homework and reading with her, so that has meant less free time. I did want to show the family Christmas Card that I made. That's probably a lie to say I made it. I bought the kit from Shabby Princess and basically just pasted my pictures into it.


If your into digital scrap booking you'll have to go check out their Holiday Card Collection, I think it was like $5.00 and then all you do is take it to Walmart or some other photo printing place and print them, it's so easy!

Fun card! Thanks for the advise. I think I will be doing that too this year. I just need a family picture. The same thing happened at Aaron's parent teacher confrences. The bad thing is Aaron is out of school for 2 weeks until we get into our apt. I hope I am diciplined enough to keep up on what he needs. I know I am not cut our for homeschooling.... I hope that this doesn't prove it.

I've wondered what you have been up too.

That card is beautiful. I'm good at buy cards but horrible at actually sending them. So I don't do it anymore :(

I really should as I know my relatives in nursing homes would love some photo's.

Great Idea Nicole....I was wondering do you get all the choices in the picture? I checked out the site and was a little confused. Do I drag my pic into the card of choice....then how do I get it to Walmart???? I would love any tips...I love those cards!!!Thanks
