out takes

Any mom of babies/toddlers knows how hard it can be to get a good photo of their wiggly wonder. I know I’m not alone in taking dozens, maybe hundreds of shots in one sitting only to end up with 1 solitary “good” shot. Well, I thought I’d share some of the funniest out takes from an early photo shoot of my sweet toddler. She was a ham even at 3 months!

That last one was almost there, but this one was the only good one and definitely my favorite of the bunch!

YOU CAUGHT ME! If you arrived here from the Jillibean Soup blog, and you are playing Bean Chase this is the blog you’re looking for.

To elaborate a bit on the clues about me:

1. What are you inspired by? 
I love browsing various craft blogs (DIY, home decor, sewing, crochet, etsy, etc) to find trends that can be incorporated into scrapping.  I also love the clean graphic feel to ads I find in magazines and other print media and I love to use those as “sketches” and color inspiration.  I’m also inspired by other scrappers’ creativity.

2. What are your top 3 papercrafting supplies?
Punches, buttons, and letter stickers/alphas.  These are followed closely by brads, journaling spots/tags, and machine stitching.  I’m not a big stamper/inker/painter but I do enjoy experimenting occasionally.

3. What is something we would never know about you?
Back up for Barry Manilow…huh??  Hee hee!  So random, right?  I actually grew up in LA and attended a performing arts high school.  As students we had tons of neat opportunities to be a part of the enterntainment industry there.  Singing has always been, and still is, a key part of my life.  I teach voice lessons (though I haven’t since we moved a few months ago) and am very active in the music program at my church.


Just leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win some delicious Jillibean goodies: a complete collection of Pasta Fagioli, and 5 packs of corrugated alphas–1 of every color! I just can’t get enough of those things. =)  Good luck!

ETA: comments are now closed for this give away.  Thanks for playing!
