At my daughter's 2nd birthday party that was held at my Mom's house, my camera battery went dead. I just had my little point-and-shoot and not my usual Nikon. I got some pictures of the event from my Mom but they were washed out from the flash and super grainy. I tweaked the pictures the best I could. I wasn't going to let the poor picture quality stop me from scrapping the event.


And wow, now I notice that my background paper looks incredibly washed out in the gallery. Doesn't look that way as a regular jpg. I guess it is one of those papers that doesn't shrink well. I just hope it prints okay.


This layout was inspired by one from scarletsierra titled “a.m. chats” featured at gallery standouts.com.


Thanks for looking!
