2010 Holiday Spectacular: No. 17

A child’s anticipation of the holiday to come and their report from Santa is arguably the very best part of the holiday season and Carrie O’Neal‘s Nice List (No. 17!) captures that excitement perfectly.

Don’t you think families everywhere will get a kick out of this? I love the headline “Be Good” and then the tag line in a much softer script “for goodness sake”. And then the stamp is just great–it’s so well put together, with the double circle, the dotted lines, and the the starred lines. I wonder if families will want to be able to downgrade their young ins to say a 7.5? A 10.0 is really, pretty nice. I don’t think I ever earned that score! Isn’t it so great how the photo is tilted–it makes the whole composition so much more interesting. And the white frame against a beige background is very classy. I really like how the photo is black and white, too. All in all, a great idea and a very solid execution.
