This week was the last week of our school holidays! So it seems it was playdate central! On Monday it was a quick playdate over at Lydells, so that Ethan and Kaitlyn could play with Denver and Mazzie. There was a great deal of delighted "noise" coming from the excited children!!
Then on Wednesday it was a playdate for Ethan and Kaitlyn at Stephs house so they could play with Emma and Madison. Again there was a LOT of excited children noise! Steph and I really wanted some cute photos of our two little girls together, as we like to keep a photolog of the girls growing up together, but it was challenging this time. They were all so excited that we could barely get them to co-operate, so hundreds of pictures later, only a few good shots emerged. These are some of those pictures!
This shot was originally landscape, but I cropped it to portrait as I loved the way the hood and photo was framed this way. There is no room for a purple aversion with these shots! LOL!
Steph and I had commented the last time we caught up that we needed to take some pictures with the girls with their hooded jackets on. The colours were so rich and delicious together and we were not let down in the high chroma goodness department with these shots!
Seriously, how cute are those two little faces peering out from those hoods!
Group shots proved to be a touch on the crazy side, but how fabulous are all the colours represented here! No it was not planned and we only noticed it once we started taking pictures of them!
Totally love the composition of this shot.
Back to the sweet little cherubs "hoodless"!
Crazy little characters!
I know that the photos speak otherwise, but Ashton and Cameron were with us as well, but I seriously didn't get a single good shot of either!! Ashton was so rogue that day, all he wanted to do was stress me out by running along a high rock wall, so rather than take photos, I was running to make sure he didn't fall! And Cameron? Well he just kept pulling weird faces at me! Grrrrr!!!
On the scrapping front, I have created this Printers Tray and Memory jar for the Aussie Scrap Source blog! I had heaps of fun creating this and was quite pleased with the results!
I used the new Authentique range to decorate this tray along with lots of Prima and some Martha Stewart doilies.
The memory jar is designed to hold baby hair, teeth and a little growth card to record all those little baby milestones in one pretty place.
Now I am back to a shameless plug of my classes in Brisbane!
