I really enjoyed making this page! I got a good (decent) shot of my three kids at church, so I used that for my main photo on the left. The overlay in the original red didn’t show, so I changed it to white & added a drop shadow. On the right had page I used another photo of my kids with some elves from our church’s Jingle Jam and one of a nativity in the lobby.
I didn't want to add pictures from us opening gifts on this layout, since my day 25 will focus on that. So I used a photo I took of a wreath & decreased the opacity to 58% (making sure the background layer/mask was white first). Then I added a bible verse from Ali Edwards’ Christmas Bible Verses brush set on top. I didn’t have another “background” photo, so I went onto our church’s website & found a great photo of someone holding a candle. Yippee! Plunked another verse on top & I’m done with day 24!
