Scarlett loved feeding the animals at the Gulf Coast Zoo. She thought it was so funny when the animals tried to eat the bag of food. This was her first trip to the zoo and her first time being close to "wild" animals. We had so much fun.

Claire feeding the goats at the Gulf Coast Petting Zoo. Claire was too scared to put more than one piece of food in her hand. This goat was too funny, taking the food pellet very gently with the tips of his teeth, as if he could sense that if he scared Claire he would not be eating any food.

Claire at Panama City Beach in her 4th of July dress. This was one of the better pictures I was able to get at our beach photo shoot. She isn't looking at the camera, but she does have a beautiful smile. I guess one out of two isn't bad.

Capture My Heart


Supplies:
Paper: Prima
Chipboard: Fancy Pants
Stamp: Bella Brush 12 x 12 Stamps by Fancy Pants (used as a template for hand stitching)
Misc: Red Thread
Design Notes: I used a favorite Fancy Pants stamp as a template on the back of my paper. I punched holes with a needle along the stamped image to use as a guide and then hand stitched through the holes with red thread.

I have been wanting to use this film strip chipboard piece by Fancy Pants and Claire loves making funny faces for the camera, so everything worked out! I love this girl so much.

I don't know what is more fun to play with, the potato head or all of the parts. This day it was definitely the parts. Claire thought it was so funny to wear the lips around the house. She was laughing so hard they kept falling off. I'm glad I was able to snap this picture. I also loved using song lyrics by Prince as the title, "I just want your extra time and your kiss."

Claire at Harvest Fest October 25, 2008. We all had a great time listening to the bands perform, especially Rock Formation. We also enjoyed visiting with local vendors and eating funnel cakes. The weather was quite cold that day but no one seemed to mind. Claire thought these pumpkins were so cute. They were almost as big as her!
