thank you

we recently had a very special day in our family; my daughter and her sweet little cousin were baptized together and many of our friends and family were able to be there for the occasion (no small feat considering we live in australia, they live in england and the baptism was in canada!). as you may know, i love to make photo cards to commemorate special events. i think a photo thank you card is so perfect as it gives the recipient something special to remember the day by. these cards were printed as 5x7 photos. thanks to taylor and olivia for sharing - i thought they might give you all some inspiration for the next time you have a special occasion =)

your favorite photos | my play as a mini-collage

here is another example of a mini-collage made using some of the favorite snapshots i know you all have sitting on your camera or computer! i actually 'borrowed' these photos from my friends' camera so that i could make them this collage of their sweet grandson. i just touched up the photos a tiny bit and turned them into 'mocha' black & whites, then placed them in the collage - this one is printed as an 8x12. isn't it a fabulous way to showcase some of your favorite photos? thanks b & g, two of my favorite people in the world =)
