I think I am getting a hang of using banners after all on layouts .;) 
These are by Sassafrass Lass - Applejack stickers. 
Alphas are Jillibean Soup. 
Wanna hazard a guess how many colors of mist were used here on the background ? 
I think I did use a record number .
Answer below .


Buttons are all by Such Sweet Tierney

Photo was edited using picnik.com .
I cannot recommend picnik more highly for quick online photo editting . 
I have never used PhotoShop & certainly not anytime soon .

Other supplies : JB Homespun Chic Journalling tag, Sassafrass Lass Nerdy Bird pps,

I still find it such a wonderful surprise to see my little one's scrapped by such a talented scrapper. You really made Lukas' eyes pop on this photo. Thank you my dear friend for this big gift.

That misting is your best ever Pearl & thanks for the Piknik tip - I tried it before & didn't get the hang of it too easily but must give it another shot...I use Picasa & loooooooove it. Photoshop effects are fantastic but I don't have a year to learn a new program! ;-D

Love the colors on this one, and the white space makes them pop even more! Looks amazing!
I usually recommend picnik as well for those without photoshop, though I've never tried it seriously myself (usually play around in photoshop... XD). Maybe I should~
