TGIF - Open Theme

Ah, the freedom of an open theme. I always smile to think of what was going on behind the scenes of photos with small children and babies in them. Who was behind the camera trying to make them smile? Was there a hand propping them up? How long did it take before the "perfect" shot was taken? I have a friend who paid for photos of her daughter's doll (and not a particularly appealing one in her eyes) in order to get her daughter to pose for her photo! This is my entry for this week's TGIF challenge.

Delicious colours and compilation Heather...I love the stories you tell as you reveal the art -- what the piece meant to you as you were creating and how you envisioned it. What a wonderful story of your friend having a doll's portrait taken in order to entice her daughter!!!
