  1. Monika Wright says:

    I know, so typical, but it would have to be a favorite picture of mine of the 2 kiddos from Christmas 2005!

  2. I don’t use make-up but it looks ike it would work great for some scrap supplies on the road. So something inspirational, maybe one of our travelphoto’s.

  3. That’s easy-Edward Cullen :) :)

  4. Yeah, I would have to use the family photo. Not too creative, but they are my favorite people!

  5. I’d love to put a photo of my three wonderful grandchildren on one of these bags.

  6. i would put a picture of the 4 grandchildren and give it to my mom, she would love it

  7. Cute!! I have two sisters as well, so I might just copy your fun photo.

  8. Kimberly Goon says:

    I would put my 8 year old daughter. She is the youngest and has three older brothers. She is all girl and would love that with her cute picture on it!!

  9. I’d take a picture of my boys and give the bag to my mother in law.

  10. I would love one of those, and would them be able to carry my son and dog with me all the time!

  11. I’d try to get a cute pic of the four of us (hubby, son, daughter and me) to put on my bag. I love outdoor photos, so it would have to be outside.

  12. Joanie Baloney says:

    I would get my own picture on a cosmetic bag so everyone would know that it’s mine!

  13. I’d use my favorite photo of the Grand Tetons and probably use it for sbing supplies.

  14. This would be great for my mother-in-law, who is struggling with Alzheimer’s. A picture of all the “grand babies” presented in this way would be yet another really neat tool to help her.

  15. Whitney S. says:

    I would probably have to put one particular family picture on it….we are all laughing and having a good time…whenever I see it it makes me really happy! This is a fun idea! Thanks so much!

  16. I’d either put a favorite picture of my parents or a picture of my sister and I. The three of them are now in Heaven and I’d oh so love to have something like this to carry them with me every day! Thanks for the opportunity!

  17. I would give this to my mom and put a picture of my mom, daughter and self.

  18. My son of course!

  19. I’m sure I would put a picture of my 3 kids on it!

  20. That’s a really hard decision. I’m going to go with my puppy, who’s looking up in the picture with huge puppy dog eyes that are saying-Love Me!

  21. My mom is always on the search for a new bag. In fact, when us sisters needs a new purse, we “shop” in Mom’s closet for it! I would put a picture of my sibs and I at the beach on it, because my mom LOVES the beach (and us, too!).

  22. I would have to put a picture of my 3 boys, the only problem is which picture to choose, I have so many of the 3 of them looking oh so cute together…

  23. I have a great picture of my sister and I together. We don’t have many that are just of the two of us (no husbands or kids) so I really cherish it.

  24. I would put a picture of my girlies on it! Probably wouldn’t do much to keep them out of it, but it would be ADORABLE! :)

  25. The photo I would choose would be of my beautiful Gerber Daisies. To remind me that Spring is just around the corner!

  26. This is adorable. I would put a photo from my honeymoon in Hawaii!

  27. Susanne N. says:

    i would put a picture of me, my mom , my sister and my daughter. how cute!

  28. My sweet family—is there anything better?

  29. Your gift ideas are great and always spark ideas for me! I would love one of those bags! I’d have to put a photo of my kiddos on there maybe one of my triplets blowing out their bday candles.

  30. I love the idea of a mother-daughter picture. Me and my two lovelies.

  31. i think it would be my favorite pic of my three kids circa 2002 (when they were 4, 10 and 14), before the craziness of the “teen years” set in….and i lost my marbles (so they think!)

  32. Lynn Altomari says:

    I would put my kiddos! I have so many cute photos of them that would be perfect for this

  33. I think I would pick a picture of me and my 2 boys. Or maybe my husband and the boys. Or what about me and my Mom? Hmmm, lots of choices!

  34. Why my 3 delightful daughters, of course.

  35. Theresa Elliott says:

    I have an adorable photo of my 2 kids that would be so cute!

  36. My first instinct is to put my kids…but I think I might use a vintage photo of my dad. I miss him a lot at this time of year….

  37. I would put a picture of my hubby´s art, a beautiful flower that is painted on wood and the petals are all carved out!

  38. I would put a picture of my daughter and I then I would fill it with lip gloss, finger nail polish and costume jewelry for her for Christmas.

  39. How fun! I’d put a pic of my three kids – all with their sweet, silly faces! :) I love those calendars, too. Thanks for the link!

  40. My son and daughter…and I would give it to my 86-year-old grandma for Christmas who doesn’t see them b/c she lives so far away!

  41. I LOVE the look of your website. Just awesome! Oh…I would put a picture of our family on the front. Would be so excited to win!

  42. I would put a picture of my 2 daughters. Or my 2 daughters and 2 nieces – all my girls.

  43. Melinda Wilson says:

    I have a picture of my son with my friend’s children at one of the HS graduations. I would put this on it and give it as a gift to her for Christmas.

  44. I would use a photo of my 2 1/2 year old daughter and give it to my mom. She doesn’t get to see my daughter often enough since we’re 8 hours apart. I took a great photo of my daughter at the beach (a trip we took with my mom) a few weeks ago and I think it would look great on that bag!

  45. I would put a picture of me and my mom…!!

  46. I think I would have to put a picture of my hubby and my daughter.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  47. Probably either a travel photo with friends or me and my dog.

  49. definitely my kiddos! what an awesome bag!

  50. Love all these photo gifts! You’re making my Christmas shopping too easy for me! I’d have to put the loves of my life, my three kids, on the bag. Thanks for the chance to win.

  51. most definitely a picture of my son! thanks!

  52. I would put a photo of my mom and me! Even though mom has been gone for 22 years, which this year amounts to half of my life, I still miss her everyday. I would love to see her everyday when I put on my makeup. She is always my inspiration.

  53. oh, that’s easy…the faces of my 4 kiddos…nothing in this world makes me happier :) Thanks!

  54. Hmmm… I think I’d put my mom on there.

  55. I would do it as a gift for my mom it her 4 gandkids on it. She would love it. Thank you for the cool links.

  56. a picture of my brothers and sisters (all 8 of us) my youngest brother of 35 years passed away in July 09 and to see his smiling face on a cosmetic bag would start my morning off for sure!!!

  57. Oh my kids of course!

  58. KristiGilbert says:

    How cute! Your pose is cute, also. I’d put a picture of my cutie almost 3 year old daughter on mine!

  59. cindy barriga says:

    My three favorite people… mama, papa + samson {my english bulldog}. Thank you for the chance! :)

  60. Well, first I thought of my children of course. But then I thought about it some more and realized that I had a PERFECT photo for that baguette. I just got back from a scrapbooking weekend in the Poconos (!) with four of my dearest friends. While having a silly moment we posed (thanks to a timer and tripod) pyramid style and we all had on black and/or pink! A pink posed pyramid – perfect! ;)

  68. My Three Sons!

  69. Chris Cross says:

    I would have a picture of my Mom and I and my two sisters. My one sister died a year ago in August, and my Mom died this past April. I miss them both terribly.

  70. I would put a picture of my DH and I when we were teenagers to remind me each morning to think young and fun.

  86. My two sweet girls of course – I’ve been the mom of TWO 8-year-olds for just about 3 months now and I can’t take enough photos of the two of them – and certainly there is no end to the way I’d love to print and display them – what better idea that having their beautiful little faces on a cosmetic bag… How fun!


  87. I would put a picture of my two sisters and I. I am the baby, the next is 14 months older than me and my oldest sister is three years older than I am. My oldest sister is a 8 year breast cancer survivor and doing great. Thanks for the cool photo ideas. CindyML

  106. Christine H says:

    It would have to be my mom with her three sisters. As an only child, I am a bit envious of their close relationship. Dinner and Target every Wednesday night, would do anything for each other, they can say what they want about each other but you better be careful what you say! They are wonderful examples of Godly women, wives, mothers, daughters, grandmothers and friends. Love them! (and I would give the bag to my mom, of course)

  114. I would put a picture of a vacation spot – Maui……..

  115. Tess Davis says:

    Uhhh…may I just put it out there and say a movie photo from the Twilight Series! I shy away from things that scream “Twilight!” so this would be something fun that will be tucked away just for me to get giddy over! Hee hee.

  116. I would put my kids on the bag!

  117. I’d put a pic of me and my boys on it… and enjoy it every day!

  118. I’d probably put a picture of my daughter. Or maybe a photo of Guatemala-where she was born. Or-maybe both-a picture of my daughter in Guatemala!

  119. Michelle P. says:

  124. Molly McCarthy says:

    My two kids of course!

  125. I would definitely put my family on this bag. What a great idea!

  126. You know I’d put my kids on that!!!!

  127. I’d put my Grandma and Grandpa on the makeup bag. They are such wonderful people whom I don’t get to see. It would be awesome to see them each morning when I do my makeup.

  128. I have this great sunset pictures of me and my husband that I love and have been using as my profile/background picture all over the place!

  129. I think I might be a little too late but those bags are cute! I would put a picture of the grandkids for my mom.

  130. Actually, I’d put an adorable picture of my two cats, Pippin and Poppin on there! I’m an empty nest mom and they are now my babies, and I could put their pic here, you’d totally know why I’d put them on there.

  131. I would put a picture of my 2 boys. They are my world!

  132. I would put my daughters on the bag- with me of course!

  133. I think I may be too late, but I would put a pic of my daughter, myself, my mother and my grandmother that we had taken earlier this year.

  134. I would put a picture of my sister and I on one … they’re adorable! I bought baguettes for some girlfriends several years ago … love them!

  136. Clara Ewell says:

    My sisters

  137. I’d probably put my cat Scruff on the photo – not living up to his name, he’s a very pretty boy with a white bib and a cute face.

  138. Hmm..either a favorite picture of my mom and I – OR…this just came to me…a cute one of my husband and I to remind me to get dolled up for him once in awhile!

  139. Karen Smith says:

    I would love this for my daughter with her two children on it – Addison age 3 and Jace 6 weeks. She’s always on the go and I can’t count the times I seen her pull out her cosmetic bag to put on more lipgloss. Her babies on it would be perfect!

  140. Viki Powell says:

    I love those bags and I would probably put a photo of my daughters on there, since they are both away at college. It would be fun to see their smiling mugs in purse everyday I peeked in!!!

  141. Nicky Brown says:

    My 3 girls….I’m so proud of them and that I am always looking for ways to “show them off”!

  142. Joy Haynes says:

    Thank you!! I just ordered the photo frames from for my fun and colorful sister. I can’t wait to see how she uses her imagination with these.

  143. Either my two kids or my sister and mom – I might have to get 2 of them!
