It seemed like a good idea: getting a photo of the cousins together in my parents' back yard should be simple. Kathy would get them situated and I'd aim and click the shutter and we'd have an image on film that I could get developed when I got back home to Staten Island.
Obviously, we didn't realize that herding cats would be easier! Baby Lisa needed to be held, so Judy had to step in and be part of the group. Somehow, Bill decided that it would be funny to hide behind his aunt just as I took the picture. Okay; wind the film and try again. Ready, aim, click and Mike had decided to wander off. One more try, this time without Judy; let's see if Bill can keep Lisa in check. Well, he could - by hiding his own face. And I seem to have given up - I can't remember if I had run out of film or if was just that my sisters and I were laughing too hard to go on.
This is my entry in this month's Sketch Challenge at Swirlydoos, using the beautiful Peach Blossom kit, a bit of drywall tape and varied flowers from my stash. The butterflies were made by fussy cutting images that I made with a Finnabair stamp; the beautiful vines were cut on my Cameo and colored with Prima chalk edgers and Color Blooms.
