didn't get to bed until after 2am and just to delay that process I decided to take photos of the presents under the tree. Hope everyone had a beautiful day with family and friends and for anyone who spent Christmas alone, my thoughts are with you - ENJOY THE MOMENT, Just coz you can. For anyone who has had a sad day, my thoughts are with you and I sincerely hope for better times for you.

Decided to upload a variant test because my kids prefer the photo without the 'noise' border' - but I like the border so curious to know what others think. The 3rd photo is the original with a small border. The first 2 are noisy with different borders. The 4th is the original with a snowy border - I've finally learned how to create borders/frames by playing around with blending modes.

Be well all
Best Wishes

Thank you Nathan, I am eating Christmas cake and drinking wine as I type this mmmmm. Hope your Christmas was wonderful Nathan - did you create a Christmas poem to share with us all???

Thank you Barry for your input - appreciate it. From experience it is never a good idea to expect but instead to go with the flow and appreciate everything. I spent the day with my girls and our dogs so it was a good day. I hope your day was wonderful

Thank you for your input Annette, appreciate it and I'm happy you like my frames because I'm so happy that I finally figured out how to create frames so I'm having a lot of fun - Hope your Christmas was wonderful Annette

Looking forward to the New Year and viewing your inspirational photos
with Gratitude
