I'd like to introduce exhibits A&B

I’m semi-nervous that I’ve set you all up for disappointment. Remember, I did not claim to be crafty, but this is as good as it gets.

This whole taking a picture of a picture thing was totally ghetto fabulous. Despite having the proper equipment to do stellar photo editing (CS3 anyone?), I am taking a picture of a freaking picture. Next time I will learn to do a back-up of my photo files prior to a virus wreaking havoc on my life. I still have CS3, just don't have the original photos to upload. To up the ghetto ante, the editing of our personal information consisted of cutting out a piece of paper and placing it over the photo. I’m sure Brittany Spears has more class than that. Then the second photo … totally had to cover up the flash to minimize the glare.

We have moved up one rung on the socioeconomic ladder tonight folks.

May I present to you exhibit one – Christmas 2006: Staring Miss Kate 10.5 months old.



May I present to you exhibit two – Christmas 2007: Staring Miss Kate 22 months old.


(Sorry it is so dark ... click to enlarge)

Ladies and gentlemen, please hold your applause until after the show. Barring any disasters, exhibit three may be posted this weekend.

Oh I love the cards! Especially that second one.

Mommy said...

At least you are doing xmas cards! My writer's block has extended to photography - hence cards are (most likely) not happening this year. Shhhhh....don't tell my husband. LOL

First of all, great X-mas cards (which really doesn't mean much coming from me -- I have no clue what I'm talking about).

Second of all, Wow ... you weren't kidding. We really do have the same writing style, huh? Gotta love that sense of humor :)

Consider yourself officially followed (your blog, that is ... ).

Simplicity said...

Love them! Both photos are adorable! Thanks for sharing!

Comedy Goddess said...

Both great pictures! You will come up with another winner.
Thanks for wanting to help me out with techy stuff. All for one and one for all.

Hi and thanks so much for stopping by my blog. 2006 xmas card is gorgeous--my favorite. This whole holiday card thing is such a big project. We always do a new years card--buys a little more time!

Annje said...

So cute! I love the Joy one. I would so copy it if I had any ambition at all for holiday pics. I was disappointed to discover that it takes a holiday card to climb the socio-economic ladder... I guess I won't be climbing any time soon! ;-) We might get around to that, if at all, post new year's.

Cathy said...
