My big girl

One of the things we first noticed when we went from having one child to two is that you forget how small they start off.

The first time I went to lift Girl No.1 up after having my baby was that suddenly she seemed GINORMOUS! And it made me realise how much she had grown. She was now a big girl. Or at least, that's what she keeps on insisting she is!

I got to use a whole mixture of Jillibean Soup, Cosmo Cricket and Scenic Route to make this layout. And play with Photoshop a bit too which I'm currently loving (in case you haven't noticed all my recent posts!) I'm starting to realise that when you're going to spend a lot of time creating a layout to celebrate a photo - it probably should be a good one! Of course, I'm all about scrapping the everyday moments and the 'not so perfect' photos if it's telling a story. But it's so easy to give all your photos a bit of a tweak, even if it's just to enhance the colours, you don't have to go all out crazy like I did on this photo.

Apart from changing the colours of this photo, I added a texture layer and a border and yes, I even journalled on my photo in Photoshop. I then just get them developed through Snapfish or whoever you normally use and it comes out a treat. Here's just the photo so you can see it better.

And yes...... the bunting/banner phase continues!!

PS. Blog candy closes tonight. Any last minute entries?


  1. So beautiful work and so interesting)

  2. I like this LO so much!! I know what you mean about the banner phase ... I've only used a (semi-)banner on one of my LO's, but I feel the urge to put it on every LO these days LOL... but I'm restraining myself LOL. I guess I'll start doing it once it's out-of-date hihi. And if you know me a little bit by now, you'll know I'm loving the paint on your LO.
