I'm very lucky that my children still love having their pictures taken. Sometimes though it can work against me because they are always on the look out for the camera and I prefer the more candid and less cheesy shots! Miss Bella has such expressive little features and I wanted to capture that on a layout.
Each of these images are very much "her" and yet each one is so different. They were all taken on a trip to the zoo last April when she had just turned 2.
Her teeth are being affected by her thumb sucking and we are desperately trying to tackle it but she looks so cute!
The photos are perfect IRL, please excuse the mottled light here! I used the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" collection here (on sale at S J Crafts right now) and went for a grid formation so I could use photos of different orientations.
I went to town with punched shapes and gems and some garden twine from the pound shop.
I am really enjoying using the natural twine at the moment as it adds such great texture and interest but works well with the natural floral theme.
I took the photos outside as I often try to do but its getting a bit cold to be laying on my slate tiles path. Can you believe it is October tomorrow? This year has just marched right past me!
Bye for now
