Because we are sisters....

I think this is the quickest i have ever done a layout for a cybercrop....twas fun!! and i've just realised how many crappy photos i have from pre-digital days ...there is more background than there is subject, but it is challenging trying to make them look good.
oh and i love raw chipboard......just randomly throwing that out there....lmao.

Some layouts to share....
