  4. Love the JOY - you captured it! I just wish I could figure out how to lay out my photos like you do - boohoo. Either Shape Collage doesn't work with MAC or with me :(

  12. I LOVE these pictures ... you can hear her giggle as she is spinning around! Love the layout. How did you do that (if you don't mind me asking). Great idea because I have such a hard time picking just one picture to post :)

  14. A few people have asked, so I should mention my photograph layouts in my posts are done using flickr. I always upload my photo's to flickr and then I choose the smaller sized photo rather than the medium size.

    Hope this helps, if not just shout.

  16. Such a beautiful shot and yes...she looks really happy. I'm a regular reader of your blog being a mother of two girls from China. One having a special need. They are the joy of our lives! We live in Sweden and I try to pop in on your blog at least once a week. Your photos are really inspirational. There...I have sort of "delurked" myself.
