Return of the Bug and the Bee {Cell Phone Challenge}

February 21, 2011

This week's I Heart Faces submissions must be taken with a camera phone...which presents even more of a challenge when your cell is so old you don't know how to retrieve the photos from it(!).  Hubby's iPhone to the rescue.  As I scrolled through the camera roll, I found one I had forgotten about from last Halloween.  My bumble bee and ladybug, tuckered out from trick-or-treating and insisting Daddy carry them while I trailed behind, pulling their wagon full of loot.  I love the grittiness of the photo... how all you really notice is the yellow & black and black & red... and two little rag-dolls seeking comfort in their daddy's arms.


This has been such a fun week to browse through entries... 
No fancy SLRs striving for perfect focus/exposure/color; instead, just real moments captured.

  5. Hi Christina! Thanks for looking around my blog! :)
    About the wreath, I just read a tutorial somewhere out in blogland and then made some minor adjustments to mine. I used straight pins instead of hot glue (I believe this is the best decision I could have made... I have heard of some serious hot glue burns from this project!)... this also gave me the ability to move things around as I saw fit. I used one old book and one much newer book (completely different sized books, too) just for the color variation and my husband and I both agree that's what we love most about ours.
    The other major thing I changed is that I folded (without creasing) mine into a "fan" instead of rolling it into a cone like most I've seen. I hope that helps! I make these all the time for gifts, so maybe I'll do a tutorial one of these days!
    (Apologies for such a lengthy comment!)
