    I know it’s popular, but I think I must be the only person who just doesn’t get the appeal of miniature/toy effects. I do like the slightly vintage look that you often add – it’s lovely!

  • LOL…well, who knows why we like or dislike certain things….But I think that effect is just fun to play with sometimes…certainly wouldn’t want to use it all the time! Thanks much, Celeste!!! :)))
