Well I don't know as I will win the blue even with such a high score. There were a couple others that should be right up there with me. Regardless I am thrilled with the score. It is almost roll over and I think I might get my third 8 on my front page.

The models for this were my daughter of course, the blond. And the two others were my neighbors kids. You will recognize the little girl she is my little girls best friend and is in many other photos. I know I have done this set up with the crates many times before. I would have liked to have taken this outside, but my models were only available for a limited time at night after the sun was down. So I had to go with the old standby. I'm thrilled with how it turned out. I will post some cute outtakes as soon as rollover hits.

Thanks so much for all the great comments! And to Shez for the award:)

here are the outtakes:

Jenn, it's lovely. As usual, you've NAILED the challenge.

Well done.
I'm so glad you saved those crates!

ETA: I think that your girls must be the prettiest, most easily-directed models ever. Or... you make them seem that way.

Either way... this... ROCKS! (as usual)
