Photo Hunters~ Orange

When I first saw the theme, I was completely unsure of whether I had an easy set of photos that I hadn't shared yet. Then while perusing through my recent trip photos, I found the PURRFECT batch.


Sugar Bear adores getting her face painted.


Predictably, it happens three times a year. Once at the pumpkin patch, once at the Harvest Carnival, and once on our annual girls trip. It is on THAT trip that the BIG face painting happens. The other two times are usually a small figure on her cheek.


Last year, she went with a really stunning butterfly, and she melted hearts wherever she roamed.


This year she had her heart set on a TIGER, her favoritest animal in the whole wide world.


It is always such fun to see her sit on the stool so very relaxed, and thoroughly enjoying the stroking of the paintbrush.


Her anticipation and excitement was contagious. People walking around the booth couldn't help but stop and watch the transformation.


Once she got a look in the mirror at herself, it was plain to see that she approved.


But you really didn't want to mess with this little tiger.


Not only was she about the cutest thing anyone had ever seen....


She was FEISTY as they come. RAWR!!!!!!!

"Tigers, Tigers around me.
Yellow, Black, and Orange they be.
Graceful beauty dwells without,
The stripes, the lean lines they cut out,
A figure swift, a figure fast,
An animal coolest to the last."
~Poem in part, by Linda A. Copp.

Thanks for coming by my blog, and checking out my ORANGE faced little tiger. Have a fabulous weekend.

What a delight this post was. Sugar bear makes the cutest tiger I've ever seen. What fun!

Donetta said...

Wow she is so cute! your font went wild!

Fresh Mommy said...

Corey, that looks like so much fun. She really is relaxed... and I agree with her, face painting/getting your makeup done is such a relaxing thing! Although, my girl doesn't think so, not yet at least, she hasn't really liked it too much yet. :)

Awesome tiger face painting! My daughter almost fell asleep having her face painted, she was so relaxed. Must feel very soft.

She must have loved it. How long did she keep the paints on?

Last week on Friday, my school had a daffodil day, some of the kids came back on Monday still with their paints on.

Thanks for visiting.

how sad was she when the make up had to come off....

Lorna said...

I have granddaughters so these are familiar scenes. The tiger is lovely, but our girls favour horses, and there's nary a spot of orange.
