Scrappy and Scruffy

Although that sounds like the title of a new kids show you might find on Nickelodeon, the title actually refers to the two new pictures of the day. 

The first picture shows that one man's trash can end up being another person's treasure of a picture.  Jess was busy making a cool autograph book for a child's first trip to Disneyland and was left with a ton of colorful scraps that were just going to go in the garbage.  I wish I could take credit for coming up with the idea, but it was actually Jess who suggested that the scraps would look cool in a picture.  She came up with it, and I made it happen!

For today, I chose to document Winston's first haircut.  He's about 5 and a half months old and it was about time for a haircut.  He was getting so scruffy and full of matted hair so it was pretty much a necessary thing.  He looks like such a different dog!  He's still cute, but a different kind of cute.  Love that dog!

I'm glad you took my suggestion and turned it into such a cool, colorful picture! I really like that the scraps have patterns - it makes the picture even more visually interesting.

And out boy is just the best! He looks SO different from his old, scruffy self, but still super cute because we can finally see his bright, curious, playful eyes! His ears are too much - up but not really. Thanks for such an adorable picture of such an adorable boy.

That first picture makes me want to start a craft project! Very colorful!

Winston looks like he's ready for a night on the town. He's got style.

You two should come hang out in the Creative Center at my work someday. You'd love it :-)
And like every other youngster, Winston looks very grown up with his little haircut!

The first picture is so amazingly colorful. Good idea Jess and great photograph son.

Winston - love my scruffy dog but understand that it is needed from time to time. He is just so adorable!!!
