We had such a great time this Christmas! We hosted for both sides of our family – 4 days of festivities! I know some people get stressed when they host for the holidays, but my husband and I love having a good excuse to clean. We love having people over, AND it was really nice not having to travel anywhere this Christmas.

What made it even more fun is we convinced all the relatives to pose for super funny pictures. I had made a bunch of props so we could take "photobooth" pictures at the holiday party in Luke's 2nd grade classroom the day before school break. And then I took these props home in the hopes that the cousins would want to get silly. Well…everyone (cousins, uncles, aunts, and grandparents) had a fun time with them.

These are just a small FEW that we took.

Many of the props I had found on the internet – just printed them off on Whisper White card stock so they were sturdy, cut them out, and attached them to skewers, tongue depressors, or popsicle sticks. But a few (the ones I initially made before finding the printable ones) were crafted out of Stampin' Up! supplies: Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper & Real Red card stock for Santa's beard and hat, Red Glimmer Paper for Rudolph's nose, and Pumpkin Pie card stock with the matching Stampin' Write marker for Frosty's carrot nose.

Hoping you all has an enjoyable and memorable Holiday Season as well.

Merry Christmas!… #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com
