Team Up Thursday - Week 11

This week, Christina and I chose New Life. I have plenty of new life popping up outside my house this Spring, but then I remembered this key chain that I bought a few weeks ago. I love items that have sayings on them, and I always seem to find them on key chains! So I saw this one and it was still in its wrapper here until I took it out the other day to shoot it. I knew it would come in handy some day!

With the new life that will be coming into my world in 9 short weeks, celebration is what comes to mind when I think of our theme.

Christina's cactus is popping new life, but its her processing that I am in LOVE with this week. The grayish green antique color on the shot gives it a wonderful ruggedness. Along with the tact sharp focus, C portrays this simple yet detailed image perfectly.

You know I love it!! Love how celebrated and anticipated this little girl is. My fav part tho, is that Ella is holding this messege to her new little sister.

I always love hearing your analysis of my photo, too. :o)

Hey, since you have so many keychains with inspiring quotes - what do you keep on your keyring? Did I tell you I collected keychains as a kid?

I wrote down that message in my little notebook. So sweet. Just love Ella's hands. I'm so excited for your new beginnings! Perfect dip, team.

What a touching post. I love both of these and I love that they are both so different from what I expected for "new life" creative.

Oh my 9 weeks, that will go by fast! I love the little hands holding the key chain and the quote is beautiful.
Christina captured new life in a whole different creative always.

So love your shots! Perfect together even though very different. Key chain is perfect thing to carry around every day. Congrats on your new life on its way! =) I agree on Cactus processing. Gives a great feeling to the image.

What a beautiful saying and cute key chain. How exciting that you'll have new life and adventure very soon. :) I like the different takes on new life too, I think the budding cactus is great idea.

I can't believe you have only 9 weeks to go...or less! Hopefully it will pass quickly (but not too quickly) and end with a happy, healthy mom and baby!
