Created this layout for a free online class taken at Two Peas in A Bucket.  Our Host, Shimelle is challenging us all year to create layouts using only 4x6 photo: one picture for January, two pictures for February, three for march, etc...I had a great time with this picture, taken of my nieces and daughter at a family Christmas (2010).  We are rarely all together anymore, so when you get them all together...watchout!  All we heard from them was laughing and giggles.

Thank you ~Carol
