Picnik

(Don't feel sorry for her.
If anything, feel sorry for me.
That tantrum was about picking up 6 Cheerios from the floor.
Lasted over 2 hours.
And I have skills, y'all!
I've worked with preschoolers since high school.
I have a degree in Early Childhood Education.
When it was all said and done, I won.
That was not a fun day.)

Like Alice, I've been sad over something petty.
I'm sad Picnik is shutting down. 
I need those speech bubbles!

Anyone know of a good alternative?

I feel the same way about Picnik. I'm devastated! I saw this article yesterday about some alternatives:

I haven't read it properly yet, but hopefully there's something good in there. If you find the perfect solution please let me know :)

I'm w/ Alice on the picnik deal. here's a pin another bloggy friend showed me, I haven't tried any of them yet though. I'm still holding onto picnik until the bitter end!

I have heard good things about Picasa but never tried it. I think Picnik will still be available for download as an app through Google+. Or at least I hope so!!! I can't live without my collages :)
