Gloria

This is Cortney's doll, Gloria. Almost every morning Cort will ask for Gloria, and "feed" Gloria at our kitchen table. On this particular morning, Cort had a VERY bad case of bed head! But, I still wanted to document this special moment. So instead of large unflattering pictures of Cortney with her crazy hair....I enlarged the picture of Gloria. I added text to the photo using Adobe Photoshop. I also lightened all the pictures to make them more "dreamy." (And to again...detract from the busy kitchen and bad hair!) All of the papers here are from Noel Mignon's Picnic Basket kit. I love how this kit has a variety of papers in it. There are bold pieces as well as soft papers, like what I used today. And yet they all coordinate together. (If you are thinking of buying it, there are only 7 kits left, so you better hurry!)

Off to school today to get my room ready......*sigh* Did this summer go unusually fast? Or is it just me?

What a perfect way to capture such a sweet moment. Beautiful!

(I've been at school all week - as special ed dept. head I'm wrestling with the master schedule and I think at this point I might be pinned. Yikes!)
