Vicki answered a lot of the questions about the Chalk Paint in the comments in the previous post. In short, no, you do not need to sand or prime. But be sure to check out what all she had to say.
I am working on a step by step guide to appliques so I hope to have that posted in a a few days. But first I wanted to be sure and post Reagan's three month pictures. Bethany Blair took them for us and if you are local, I would definitely recommend her. She is great with kids!
Reagan was Miss Serious this day and only gave a few smiles. She was happy as could be but was more interested in cooing and talking. It would have been a perfect video shoot. Haha! Her outfit came from HERE. I ordered it before she was born in hopes that she could wear it for her 3 month pictures. My hunch that she was going to be a big baby paid off because it fit perfectly!
