Would you believe not a single person correctly identified this photo as Vaseline smeared by my 17-month-old all over the top of my baby grand? Has no one else experienced the joys of toddler boys?! LOL!
No worries, though, we still have a winner, of course. Eight people guessed painting of some sort, one even guessed "finger painting." Close enough! I drew a random winner from those eight for the card and some goodies. Congratulations go to Jami Bova (sgtstamper) - woohoo, girlfriend! Email me with your address so I can get your prize sent out. Laura Fredrickson (scrapnextras) gets an honorable mention for creativity. She said:
I definitely know what the photo is. It's an alien nest. How I know I can't tell. Top secret. I would suggest you quickly destroy that picture if you know what's good for you.
This was fun - we should do it again sometime!
The fact that there was a jar of Vaseline on my piano is totally random. I photograph my cards on the piano, and the Vaseline jar just happens to be a good-size object to prop my projects against without it being seen in the photo. I'm just glad Gabriel didn't try to eat the Vaseline! The fact that I found him on top of the piano was a surprise - he's never done that before. However, while I was cleaning the piano, I looked over to find him sitting in the middle of the dining room table! He's acquired a new skillset, I see. Fortunately, he has a distinct babble that I've come to recognize as "I'm into mischief, Mom. Better come quick!"
Here's the shot I cropped the mystery photo from:
Isn't this handprint adorable?
I had phtoographed a bunch of RAKs earlier in the day, so there was a lot of stuff still lying on the piano. Thankfully, none of the cards was ruined. That big blob is on a piece of foamcore that I use when I need a white background for my photo.
The source of it all:
And "the villain" (shot taken on a different day, playing with big brother and the water hose):
And last, this is exactly why everything seems so much harder to juggle than it was this time last year. I'd forgotten how much work toddlers are!
Thanks to everyone who played!
