She looked right into the Camera!!!!



It is so hard to get a good photo of Shannon, you will rarely find a photo of her with her eyes open and wide, and if you do, she is not looking at the camera.  I try and try and the have 1000's of photos of her but none good enough to scrapbook or print.  It's not Shannon's fault, she has problems with her eyes, but I was sooo happy to find this photo in my camera.

The photo is special in a few ways.  We took the bus to town with the two small girls, in early March and had a long walk up to Grafton Street, and found a nice place to have lunch on St. Stephens Green.  We sat by the window to watch the world go by, and the light was lovely.  Shannon has a very limited diet (her choice!) and asked if she could have Hot Chocolate and Chocolate cake - so that's what she got!  She really enjoyed her treat and I snapped a few photos of her with chocolate on her face and enjoying her day out.  

I used some lovely tulle and sewed a line of tack stitch into it, and pulled it into a ruched frill and then stuck down with some Glossy Accents.  I think the papers are from Cosmo Cricket (will change if I am wrong).  Some bobble trim from my stash and seam binding from The Ribbon Girl (swoon I just am madly in love with this stuff).  

Lot's more LO's to share with you - and please please please pay a visit to my 100th Blog Post Giveaway and add your name to the list! PLEASE!!!

What a beautiful layout, and such a lovely pretty smile she has. Sounds like the day the photo was taken was the perfect type of day for you both :) chocolate and a smile, what more could you want.
