Well what you'd know!  Just discovered what a difference it makes taking a photo of project outside - the colours are so true to life.  When taking photo's inside I've always found that the colour is always washed out no matter what setting you try.  SOO PLEASED to have found a setting on my camera that takes the photo's I want.

Loving this Sarah Kaye stamp - have had a long time but I don't think I've used it before - if I have then I've forgotton.

I agree with you - getting the right lighting is so difficult. Your card and coloring is gorgeous. I especially love all the shading and colors in her hair. Very pretty.
