Studio G is alright for me

My kids have a weird relationship. The little one will hold her arms up to be carried, even though she's going on 4 and shes very heavy. I tell her that I am not going to carry her but my oldest doesn't mind. I always tell her to put her down. The little one still wants to sleep with the bigger one even though she has her own bed.  The inspiration for this LO came from May 2012 Creating Keepsakes. If you have the mag go to pg 77. The picture was originally in color but I wanted to play around with it and do something different. I use Picasa to edit. I have PE 9 but I haven't learned to use it yet so I'll play with Picasa for a while. I used the "vignette" feature and I liked it. I printed it bigger than usual, as I tend to stick with snapshots. When I scaled it down, it lost quality. The ppr is by Studio G, I got from WM last Friday. Mind you I saw the ppr weeks ago but I didn't like it so I passed up. But while I was there on Friday I noticed they had more than one style so I grabbed them all. Hey for a buck you cant beat. Purple is really not my fav color but now I'm easing into it. If you know me, I love butterflies I just didn't want to add more than needed, plus I wanted it clean and simple. I added some journaling in purple and a glitter button from American Crafts. Found @ TJ Maxx for $1.49 2 wks ago. The scalloped punch is Michael's brand Recollections. I was going to add stitching to it but I got tired. I may go back and add later....But probably not LOL. The small letter stickers are from Kaiser Craft. I had to use my WRMK brad setter to set them and they are still crooked. But it gives character and I'm not complainin'. The bigger teal stickers are from October Afternoon. Thanks for looking


  1. This is a GREAT page, Mia! Everything coordinates so so well- I wish you could stand over my shoulder and help me pick colors!!!

    And great journalling, too- but I'm sorry, I'd have to pick her up, she's so cute! I don't know if it's fatherly biological clock or what, but these are the cutest kids!

    Is that a stamp, the bullseye kinda lookin one?


  2. Hi Kory. Thanks for the love (LO and about my kids). Yes the stamp I picked up, it's actually a couple of stamps in the pack, from a seller on EBAY. The company is called "My Stamp Box". I thought they were so cute. Have a blessed day.
