But aren't the photos sooooo cute!! Ty (in the Tigger outfit) and his cousin, Yu Shiuan (piglet of course) were born only 2 days apart and when they were 6 months old, we brought them to Universal Photo Studios for a studio shoot. Ty had gotten the piglet outfit as a gift from my aunt, Hjh Adina (who meant to give it to my cousin's child Aqilah but did not realize it was a piglet so we lucked out except that it is pink...not that the colour stopped us from letting Ty use it for as long as he could fit in it - metrosexual colour bah). The Tigger outfit is a hand-me-down from I dunno who.

I must admit I am not very good with patterned paper. Love buying them but can't seem to use them properly. The Chatterbox brand of papers are really nice and they come co-ordinated by "rooms" and are double sided. The paper I used above is from the Sun Room collection and it was pretty easy picking for me as i wanted something to match the orange of the Tigger outfit.
My cousin, LJ (who is scrapbook crazy now) just came back from joining a beginner and intermediate class in Singapore at Laine's Papeterie (located on the 3rd Floor of Wheelock Place - same floor as Birkenstock) and she was told that we should choose our patterned paper first and then choose the co-ordinating cardstock. That sure was news for me as i almost always choose my cardstock first to match the photos and then I trawl thru my paper stash for matching paper. When you think about it, it does seem easier to choose patterned paper first. So that is the quick tip for today. :-)
