Here is a beautiful entry from.....

Jacqui Miles - His Softer Side...


Hi Shazza,
Happy first Birthday Artastic! I loved the
colours in the painting and to me the art
work had both a soft and a rough side to
it so when I took these photos of my son
Alex with the butterfly I knew that I had
to use them for this challenge.
Jacqui Miles :)
Hi Jacqui, Love these piucs of Alex, cant believe you got a photo of the butterfly without it flying away. Great pp with the bugs around the edge, thanks for joining in our 1st birthday challenge. Great work - Shazza
