ok... this is a little more whimsy than i normally do, but i've been dying to use this particular flower brush by Leiks and it worked well here, i thought. ;) plus, i've feel like i've been using some "less graphic-style" elements lately and it was nice to get back to clean and simple (and of course, back to the beloved paislee press!) ahhhh. =) i love this picture of alyssa... she was pushing on this gate as hard as she could, like she thought she could push right through it... she promptly reverted to her normal frustration mode when something doesn't work like she wants it to, so i eventually had to make her quit. hehe anyway... sassysarah FINALLY gave me her secret on the brilliant coloring that's always on her pictures... thanks girl... it really gave this picture what it needed!!!!
