5 Years Old

Okay, I've got to say that I really LOVE the new Girls' Paperie Holiday line mixed with bits of the Paper Girl line.

I met the paper deisgner, Margie, at CHA. It's always cool to meet someone who designed something I am creating with.Me, Margie, Jennie and Diana.

Here's a look at a layout I put together using her new lines.Loved using the bright colors with a black.white photo. All of the paper, stickers, alphas and die cuts are from The Girls' Paperie. The date/place paper is from Elle's Studio and the black/white tape I used on the photo corners is from Pink Paislee.
I hardly took any pictures when we celebrated my daughter's birthday and I was pretty worried when the pictures I did take turned out like this. Even tweaking the color in Photoshop wasn't going to save this picture.
I decided to play around with some actions I had downloaded from Pioneer Woman.

I gave the PW's B&W a try on this poor photo and ended up with this beauty after playing around with the brightness and contrast a bit. I love the edge burn, how the candles glow and light up my daughter's face. A bit of an imporovement? I was very happy that the photo was "saved" and I could now use it on a layout.

Good news...everything on this layout will be in the August Scrapbook Circle kit.
