Copy Cat……

There is a story behind these photos. Very interesting one. When Aditi was 3 and my Siddarth was nearly 5 years old, we had been to Tassie on a holiday. This is our first holiday in Australia. My first experience with 2 little ones outside my comfort zone.
Main issue was the food. Aditi does not eat any other food other than a selected favourate Indian food (my mom’s choice of food). Siddarth was just starting to eat fruits and veggies. And we do not eat meat at all. At that time Tassie did not have very many Indian resturant!! They would make a big fuss and will not eat( who will eat butter and jam sandwich and fruits all the time anyway!!).
So I had made this sign of placing my thumb and index finger and open my eye wide to show them I am angry because they are not eating. It became so funny for them that they would show each other and giggle and laugh.
Obviously, my trick did not work.SIGH!! But they looked so cute making the sign and laughing at each other!!! These are pictures of them actually doing the sign and have a ball.I just love them in the photos. Don’t they look cute?

This layout I made is for Pauly’s challenge on Debs

This month I challenge you to create a layout with the quote:

You also must have a Christmas Tree on the page somewhere whether you have a pic of one or you create a tree on your page.

I have used Basic Grey papers and embellishements only except for the kaiser bling on the christmas tree.
Here is the list of materials I have used on this layout.
1. BG Eva Pannier PP.
2. BG Eva Grandiose PP.
3. BG Sugared Strawberry Smoothie PP.
4. BG Urban Couture Poplin PP.
5. BG Recess Philosophy PP.
6. BG Sugared Delicious PP.

I had the perfect pictures for this challenge as my DD had lost both her front tooth recently. I altered the photos using Picasa software into soft focus so that the focus is on her lost tooth smile. I am evil….. am I? But the pictures are perfect for this layout? lol!!!

Anyway, here are a few closeups….
