It's so weird how every time I upload an image to my blog it's darker than it was in Photoshop. I wanted this to be a super special lo. This picture of my children tugs at my heartstrings.
I'm thinking about remaking the little name block so that their names are more bold... but overall I'm in love with this layout!


I used chalk ink and the back of this sheet of paper as a mask to create the block around the photo. That's K&Co paper ribbon across the bottom of the pic. The ruffled ribbon is more magenta IRL and matches perfectly. Added a CK rhinestone flower brad to attach the ribbon. I made my own rub-on with a transparency for the "Moment" part of my title and wrote in the rest with a zig writer. I borrowed this title from a lo my friend Tara made. The heart brad is paper studio. Finally the paper is Creative Imaginations.

I love the page. The colors are gorgeous.

I think the color is a blogspot thing. I notice my photos are way darker online too.
