My Entry – the real story!

Am I totally crazy to use a photo like that? What on earth was I thinking? I remember not more than a few months ago I had no photos of myself – it was so difficult to scrap that first page about me – and now here I am using a crazy photo like that – and putting it on my blog for all to see.

Isn’t she such a beautiful princess! I had to hang this on the lounge wall to get the pics cause her bedroom wall is actually bright blue – maybe one day we will redecorate to match the mirror! The board and mirror were actually left over from the craft day I ran. We did mosaics – broken tiles and grout – I thought it was a good use of supplies I already had.

Any guesses as to how many photos I took – just to get one good one of the three of them? It was lots – and not without a bit of bribery too.

“But Mummy why do we have to lie on this white table cloth?”

“Alexander’s squashing me …”

At first when I looked at these photos I was really disappointed – I’d tried really hard but they just weren’t perfect. But then I looked at them again and I began to see a layout forming. These photos show my kids as they really are – there’s personality in them kids!
