shrinky dinks…

Do you remember coloring shrinky dinks when you were a little kid?  I sure do – I remember spending hours coloring fun designs, cutting them out oh-so-carefully, then watching in wonder, through the oven door window, as they curled up and then flattened out – revealing a smaller, but much brighter, little version of their original selves! 

Of course I was thrilled to introduce my own kiddos to the magical world of shrinky dinks – and I’m so glad I snapped a few photos of Zach one day as we worked on them together.  I created this layout featuring a few of the photos I took that day.


This layout is on the Bella Blvd. blog this week – you can see it here, along with more great projects from my fellow design team members!


I just love the colors in this new collection, Max.  The greens and oranges are perfect for so many of my photos – you’ll be seeing lots of Max in the future! :)
