Help me decide on a picture of Cortney! & a picnic card!

I went to a great place for pictures today called A Bit of Charm. It is in Tinley Park, IL. These ladies spent so much time with Cortney! As most of you know Cortney has Cerebral Palsy. She had such a hard time keeping her body upright, her eyes straight and NOT showing everyone her tonsils! (Not a pretty sight!) I think I've narrowed it down to these 2. Not sure which one I like better. Please help me choose!



I stamped some images from my good friend Sharon, over at Dew Drop Inn Designs. I colored this little lady in with my Copics. ( I have no idea what the name of this SU! set is! If you know please tell me!) I used crystal lacquer on the seeds to give it some dimension. The paper is Daisy D's and Creative Imaginations. I inked the edges with Sahara Sand. The twine was in my stash. I tied it right through the button! I did make another Christmas card...so maybe tomorrow I will post that one!

Oh geez! That is a hard one to choose from. They both turned out great! hmmmm.. I would have to say the second one. I love how she is looking up sort of and her smile is beautiful!.. :)

What great pictures, love the second one the best, her smile on this one is adorable, so warm and happy

Erica Payne said...

I like the second one too. She looks like a happy little girl!

Amy said...

Ok, I'm going out on a limb here and saying I like the first one better! There's always a trouble maker in every bunch, I guess! I like it because it's so spontaneous and gentle looking! She's beautiful, Michele!

Your daughter is so beautiful! I love both of the photos, but if I had to choose between the two, I'd probably pick the second one. :)

Julie Masse said...

Really they are both beautiful! how great to have such wonderful pictures!! I think I too like the second one the best but you couldn't go wrong with either! :)

Amy said...

Ditto, I like the second one best. But, both are so cute. I'm glad you found some good picture people for the event!

Denise... said...

Same with me...my vote is for the second one. But like others have said, you can't go wrong with either. How fun to have a great picture taking time!

Rose Ann said...

Wonderful pictures, Michele! I would have to choose the second, because I think her smile extends to her eyes more in that picture. Both are sooo good though!

Your card is really awesome too!

Nancy Grant said...

I choose the second one two. Both are great pictures of Cortney. You are a blessed Mom!

Tejal said...

No doubt the second one. It's beautiful!!

Anonymous said...

I definately like the second one best.

Princess Matilda said...

I love that second picture. She just looks so full of personality and charm in that one. I have to say, she has one of the most beautiful smiles I've seen! The first picture looks more spontaneous, but the second picture just makes her look so impish and sweet!

Bevie Pearl said...

I would chose both. I think they are both super pictures.

~Nancy~ said...

Love both of the pictures.. but I'd go for the 2nd one.. Gorgeous!!!! And love your cards!! XOXO

Jennifer said...

They are both beautiful - as is she, but I really like the second one. I noticed her eyes immediately in that one - what beautiful eyes! And look at the gorgeous thick hair - I'm so jealous!!

Oh, great card too!

SpAzzGiRL said...

Love the second picture, maybe when I visit you will let my amateur lens try and capture her too!
Love the picnic card, totally cute!!

Stamper Gail said...

Gotta love her beautiful smile so Picture #2 is my suggestion.

Laura said...

They are both so beautiful and so is Cortney. I choose the 2nd one. Her smile is priceless!!!

Sharon said...

Michele, These are great pictures of Cortney! I don't think I can choose between them and would have to get both. She is such a cutie, especially when she is scrapping with us in MI.

These photos are great, your daughter is such a cutie! I like the second one better, the way she's looking up is just so sweet. But they are both great!

susan j said...

The second one!! She is gorgeous too!!

Kirsi said...

Great pictures of Cortney. She is one happy and beautiful girl. I'd choose both pictures, they are so perfect in different ways.

Love your card too!

Emilia said...

I vote for the second one picture! :)

Corie said...

Definitely the second one. Both are great, but I like the smile in the second picture. She is soooooo cute.

The BlogHore said...

Tough choice! I think I like the 2nd one....that smile is so sweet...with just a hint of mischief.

Kristine said...

Wow...you've had a ton of responses to this post!! :) We all love seeing family photos I s'pose ;) Of course the one of her smiling is always great, but I would choose the first one. You can see her beautiful face better and it looks much softer. Good choices--can't go wrong with either. I LOVE her hair!! :) She's soo pretty.

Kim said...

Bottom one - adore the sweet look on her face!!

Alexandra said...

that is a hard choice because she is cute in both but I think I like the second one the best - her smile is amazing in that picture!

I'm sticking with the pack and saying #2. It expresses a lot more emotion. You have a beautiful girl!
