Joy // The Reveal {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // JOY in the face of a 7-year old getting her face painted!My daughters LOVE getting their faces painted! And I have to admit, I love seeing their faces light up when they see their cute painted faces look back at themselves in the mirror! What a whimsical reflection! So when I read the prompt for the week at The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy, I practically jumped for joy myself! I realized I hadn’t posted these photos from the “Lunch with Santa” event at our community center just days before Christmas and I knew they were perfect for the prompt.

PS. These types of photos are some of my favorite to scrapbook. Not because of the story of getting their faces painted, but because the photos already tell that story, I’m able to dig deeper into some personality traits and document tidbits about who my girls are deeper, literally and figuratively, beyond skin deep! Lain Ehmann’s Layout a Day (LOAD) has been instrumental in helping me document my family over the years and I absolutely LOVE the month long challenges. One of those is coming up very soon – LOAD214 starts February 1st! Don’t miss out – it sells out every year and you can snatch up a 30% discount with the code BUST through January 10. LOAD has seriously been life changing for me! Do yourself a favor, and check it out here!
