Each year, I try to create some sort of fun holiday gift wrap theme.  Our kiddos always really look forward to it, so I simply cannot stop now. Cheesy  The last few years, I've used plain old brown kraft paper and I've just changed up the tags, ribbon, etc.  One year was metallic doodles with their names hidden in the swirls and creations.  Another year was red ribbons and accents galore.



This last year, we've had lots of adventures since moving to the desert, and we've easily taken thousands of photographs.  So I decided I wanted to feature those! Smiley

I found this free Polaroid template PNG from Decorator's Notebook and knew it would be perfect.  I opened it in Photoshop and dragged all of my images into the file as new layers.  Once I resized and aligned them to my liking, I gave each the same action treatment (a hazy black & white action).  Then I resized the entire Polaroid file and sent all of the photos to the printer on plain old white card stock.  Once printed, I chopped 'em out with my paper guillotine and they were good to go.







They looked so lovely under the tree!





The kids have claimed the photos for their bedroom wall, which is pretty cool.  baby.sweets4ever got an actual Polaroid camera for Christmas, so I suspect their walls will be plastered with many more photos very soon!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I absolutely LOVE this idea! It is perfect for any occasion. I might have to copy it for OMP's birthday next year.

That tree is beautiful!

Eep!  Where are you now?  We moved from Columbus, Ohio to Phoenix!  We're in the very southern tip of Phoenix, so Tucson is just 1.5 hours from us.  It's a pretty easy drive between the two.  And there is a giant ostrich farm along the way. Cheesy

When are you moving?

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

We're currently in Chandler, south of Phoenix.  hopefully the house in Tucson will close around January first.
Wanna get together?
Ostrich farm?  On what route?  We've been going through Casa Grande...

Beautiful! Everything looks so sweet with that plain brown paper and simple ribbons. Great idea with the photos, just charming.
