Gimme a D!

Our little girl makes me smile.  And she makes her daddy smile, too.  That’s why I knew that her sweet little face had to be incorporated into his Father’s Day gift this year.

Here’s what I did:

I bought 12 inch “D” and “A” paper mache letters at JoAnn Fabrics and spray painted them aqua.  Easy, right?

Then we held a little photo shoot in our yard.  Actually, we held two photo shoots because it took two tries to get three shots that I liked.  I printed the pictures and put them into a three opening photo frame.

Photographing a two year old for a project like this ain’t easy.

Cheese!

Oops!

But, Daddy will love it!  Outtakes and all.
