Childhood

I was really excited and had high hopes for this week's photography challenge over at Our Reflection!
Did you see I won 1st place last week! So exciting!

The theme was
Childhood

Easy Peasy!
I have 2 little ones right in the thick of it right now, right?
I thought I had this one in the bag!

Well, it was harder than I thought.

You see, my kids have a much more happening social life than I do, and they were barely around this week!
I didn't want to resort to using an older photo, since the rules state we should take a new one... and I'm a stickler for the rules!

At first, I thought about MY childhood, and how I could represent that.  I took a few cool shots of an old suitcase I still have, filled with old Barbies & other little knick knacks... I loved it because of the memories it brought back, but I wasn't sure I was capturing the theme.

Luckily, I did manage to get in a mini photo shoot with Ruby one night this week... and although I did get a few cutesy shots... nothing said "Childhood" more to me than this one!


Ha!
I couldn't resist...
Sure, there were other photos where she didn't have her finger half way up her nose, BUT...
What's more childish that picking your nose!?

We all did it!  ;)

I also love the fact that she's surrounded by her stuffed animals, and I played around with it to make it really bright a little "cartoon-ish" for the theme this week!

I can't wait to see what everyone else took pictures of this week!

Linking up here
