Howell's: A Year In Review

Who: David, Kristin, Emma (3) and Cate (1)

Location: Downtown Bryan, Texas

Props: None

Clothes: Girls - Dresses from Gap, shoes and shirts from Children's Place; Mom & Dad - shopped their closet (or in other words - no idea)

Comments: The picture on the front was the only one we got that day where we were all smiling!  Oh the joys of a 1 and 3 year old just getting over a terrible sickness.  But, I was determined not to reschedule {again!}...we rescheduled once already.

Designer: Zazzle

Photographer: Kristy Hamilton

Favorite Thing: I always like getting a letter with updates from friends and family with a card, but I knew I would never get that done...so I was excited to be able to put a couple of updates on the back of our card about our year and include individual pictures of the girls.  I also liked that the front was just one big picture so everyone received a Christmas card but could display our family picture all year long.

Katy's Thoughts: You have to look closely, but that little tiny wrinkle in the leg of Miss Cate... holy pajamas... baby legs get me every.single.time. :)

Cindy's Thoughts: I absolutely love the "mini-letter" concept.  Don't get me wrong, I love the long letters too, but sometimes a brief update is fun!  Also, the girls smiles - which are mischievous, cute and fun - are too stinking adorable!


How can you recreate this card? What makes this card great is that is so about their family and what is going on in their world...it shares a darling photo and then gives you a brief update.  So grab your family, get a great family shot and then reminisce about the previous year!

Get PINspired:
  1. We love the chalkboard cards, remember our post about them?  We even did an entire board about them.  Well, you can use that look for your mini-letter/year in review concept too!  Check this, this, this and this out!
  2. You don't have to have a picture to share the MERRY, this and this card are great examples of year in review cards.
  3. Someone, anyone, please do a card like this!
  4. Keeping up with the Jones!
  5. Y'all.  This card is absolutely stunning...and funny!  LOVE IT!
  6. And because we love you so much, check out our entire board!
