i Caught Santa and You Can Too!!

Remember the magic of a childhood Christmas? The scent of pine in the air, the glow of Christmas lights twinkling, eyes sparkling as your heart flutters with anticipation Christmas eve. The restless tossing and turning as your thoughts of what Christmas morning will bring race through your mind and the knowledge that Santa will step foot in your very house as soon as you can surrender to slumber. Everyone has special childhood memories they cherish!

I am a memory keeper....I blog, I scrapbook, I keep album after album chronicling the lives of my children. Each year at Christmas we share in the traditional Santa rituals, leaving cookies and milk, carrots for the reindeer, I often leave notes from Santa to the children but what if every one's childhood wish came true, what if you could offer your child the memory of catching Santa in the act of giving? Isn't this something we all dreamed of as children? iCaughtSanta gives your family the opportunity to do just that! What a new and exciting way to add to your child's holiday wonderment!

iCaughtSanta allows you to digitally alter a photo taken in your home to include you know who...yes, that Jolly Old Elf, Santa himself! I was thrilled to try my free code and give this a try. The process is so quick and easy and you will be amazed with the resulting keepsake photo your kids will never forget. First, take a digital photo of the area in which you would like Santa to appear and upload it to your computer. I chose by our fireplace but you can be as creative as you wish and one quick peek at the iCaughtSanta Photo Gallery might give you a few hints.

Next visit iCaughtSanta and click Get Started. Upload your photo then follow the simple onscreen directions to choose a Santa pose and insert him into your picture! You can re-size, rotate, and change the colour and contrast. You can even add a border if you wish! Don't like what you've come up with? Just hit reset and start again.

It really can take only minutes and once you purchase the photo you can send it to family and friends via email, share it on all the social networks, save it to your computer, and have it processed or print it yourself! This is the cutest idea and can you imagine what innocence and wonder this would bring to children just beginning to question the existence of Santa? I think my 9 year old son, Gabriel, will be stunned!

iCaughtSanta photos are a magical way to surprise your children Christmas morning but they also make great Christmas cards so start early! iCaughtSanta gift certificates could be the perfect gift for someone on your list and iCaughtSanta is just one of the CatchACharacter creations.
