But before I tell you about that, I've got to show off the cutest butt this side of the East coast. Oh some of you may disagree having cute little hind ends of grandchildren or children of your own but then you'll know just how partial I am to this one.
This middle child is all girl. She loves to take the clothes out of her drawer and her sister's drawers, and place them on the bed combining tops and bottoms into matching outfits. Did an image flash into your mind. Yup, you got it. Her room is often wall to wall clothes as she throws those shes matched off on to the floor in a rush to match up another outfit. Since she could use a little self-esteem boost, I thought this would be just the ticket. Besides she loves to be in front of the camera and is photogenic. So when her hair was fussed with and a touch of lip gloss and blush applied, she was in her element.
And if the pictures look a little cropped and funny, it's because you aren't allowed a sneak preview of the garments in the upcoming magazine. But let me tell you that there is this scarf that our middle grand daughter models that is a must make. It is whimsical and absolutely adorable.And then you'll have to keep your crochet hook out because the hat she models next is absolutely adorable. I know, I know you want to see for yourself but you'll just have to wait. Toni said we'd see a copy in October but I'm not sure when it hits the shelves. You can count on a heads up when the time is close so you can buy a copy.
Then as we were visiting and our middle grand daughter was being fluffed, as they called it, for her upcoming shots, they decided to use the other two grand daughters also.
The whole experience was fascinating watching the photographer in action, the stylist working with the kids, and just to experience the behind scenes of what goes into producing a magazine is an educational experience.
My daughter made jokes about how handicapped I was in Photoshop. Yeah, that is definitely a thing I need to learn. Which is what I learned this color card is for - photo shop. Right before every new outfit, the model holds this card so when they go into Photoshop to tweak the pictures, they have a true reading of what the colors should be.
