Check out these gorgeous DT examples!!
 I used these pics that I took of my sweet girls on their first days of school (they started one day apart) along with October Afternoon's Report Card collection, which I think was perfect for them. I really like how my page came out and I even played around with making a new flower! :) Also, I used a technique I learned from our very own Abby where you use circle punches, a bigger circle of whatever size you need, and some really good adhesive to create your own custom scalloped circle. It takes a little bit of time but works and looks great! -April
these 2 girls do love to play together! my "g" girls are both fun and sweet and full of energy! they brighten every day! i knew the page needed to be as BOLD, yet sweet as they are. i loved added little patterned paper circles here and there mixed with buttons and added hand sewing, too. -Lisa
I made this page about my daughter and her friend.  These girls are together 
since Kindergarten until now. I remembered when they played with dolls..
now they're two pretty teenagers.  They are the Best Friends!  -Marilyn
This is what my lil' girl looks like everyday with her brightest smile always makes us laugh every time we saw her, she's a cheerful and cutie little girl! This photos is taken Fall last year, the one on the left is a day after she got a haircut and on the right is before she got the haircut. :) -Suzy
During christmas, we went to Winter Wonderland Puerto Rico, this was a seasonal indoor attraction with fake snow and some snow related attractions. There was snow characters like Rudolph in the photo that were available to say Hi! to the kids. As soon as I saw this fun sketch, I knew I had to use this die cut paper from Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate collection! The snowflakes were raw chipboard sprayed with "Jack Frost" mist. The buttons have silver glitter! -Yara
I love working with sketches and this was a really fun one! I used papers and embellishments from Fancy Pants' "It's Your Day" collection  -Amy
My son and my nephew with reindeer antlers - typical toddler with his fingers up his nose lol. I absolutely love this Echo Park collection - so full of bright colors! I kinda went crazy with my i-rock, too - but who doesn't love alot of bling bling!? -Abby
