Shabby Baby Girl Broke Her Crown

When I saw the Picture Princess contest at shabby apple I knew I found the perfect model! Who you ask??? Why Her Majesty of course. Since I have no recent photo's that were anywhere good enough to enter I decided to take her outside today and use my limited photography skills to get some winning pictures. What I didn't plan on (obviously) was her Evil Knievil move over the side of the slide. We ended up in the ER with a dislocation and severe sprain of the left arm. She will have to spend the next 2 weeks in a sling. Nice job Mom. So here are my 3 entries. I have zero editing ability so she is as she is. Purely beautiful. ****UPDATE Her arm is actually broken and was casted this am****

Ava is the perfect shabby baby model. She is a total girly girl who loves to dress up-do her "put a ring on it" dance and keep her "bad boys" AKA her brothers in line. She's got mad curls, a zany sense of humor and a heart the size of Texas. If she doesn't win on beauty and personality alone she certainly is worthy of a shabby baby wardrobe after the trauma she went through just to enter!!!

So here she is!

I love this one even though her dorky brother gave her rabbit ears. Damn my missing Photoshop gene. ***Thanks Nicole for taking out the hand!!!!***

I debated on this one. She was grubbing on some chicken wings. "Bones" and had made quiet a mess but it really shows her curls and her eyes....and her love of good eats! ***Thanks Ashley for editing out the food on her face!!!***

Just for fun-Taken when we returned from the ER-sleepy on morphine.

And this is her favorite shabby dress "little girls and girls dresses from shabby baby". Wouldn't she be perfect in it? Minus the barbecue sauce or arm sling of course!!!

Keep your fingers crossed for her!


  1. I think she would be perfect in the shabby baby dress. Way cute!!
    Sometimes a break is better than a sprain so... hopefully she heals fast and can get back to business keeping her bad boys in line.

  2. You did a great job on your "photo shot". She's wonderful.

  3. Awwwwww. A winner for sure.

  4. could she get any cuter?!

    love the dress.

    my fingers are crossed for Ava.

  5. Ahhh, she's so beautiful! Good luck! I hope she wins!

  6. Good luck! She's beautiful! I especially love the second one!

  7. GORGEOUS!! It's cool that you did all of this BEFORE the cast/arm breaking incident. She's young and resilient and, with her bones still forming, hopefully won't cause more pain or affect the bone growth as she gets older. ;)
    (My oldest had the same thing happen when he was her age.)

  8. I really REALLY hope she wins. And when she does, cast or not, you MUST post pictures!!

    She is such a doll!

    Huge bummer about the arm, though. This past week my kids have taken to using a slide indoors, propped up in the living room, and they ride down the slide on an upturned step stool. I've got 91 dialed and am ready to add the last 1 at a moment's notice.

  9. enter the one with the cast-total 'tude!

  10. You did a great job on those pics. Hope her arms heals soon :)


Play nice in the sand box or I'll smack you in the face with a shovel.
