I love bargain shopping and often practice it like it's an olympic sport. Almost nothing beats the feeling of finding something amazing at an even more amazing price so imagine my glee when I found the beautiful blouse Gwen is wearing in the photo above. I got it at Marshalls -- and it was under $10!
It's not a child's shirt (it's for me!) but as soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to have the girls wear it for this photo shoot. To keep it from falling off, I used an elastic hair band to gather up all the excess material at the neckline in the back. Voilla! The shirt was instantly transformed into a dress!
This is the third time I've used a photo of Gwenny in an I ♥ faces challenge. I really do work hard to give my girls equal face time here on the blog so it worries me a little bit that most of the recent pictures have been of Gwen. The photo, above, is just too cute to not use this week though! I love the way her nose wrinkles up when she laughs!
I'm not supposed to post more than one photo but, since I don't expect to ever win one of these contests, I'm disqualifying myself and posting a 2nd photo so both of my girls can have equal blog time. Here's photo number two: A stunning pic of my beautiful little Madeline!
Shana probably recognizes this pose. Yep, I'm still trying to duplicate the beautiful photo she took of her neice. I think this one actually comes close but I'll admit that I'm probably a bit biased. :)
I took a bunch of photos during this photo shoot and many of them came out great! Sometimes, we just get lucky that way! Here's a dozen of the best ones: Pretty Green Shirt
