I was already experiencing the beginning of the sinus infection that has me completely laid up today, so I didn't have much patience for photography. I'd find a shady spot and the wind would blow my tree cover away. I got three photos before I said, "Screw it."

I wanted the girls to be on cell phones, texting each other. One was going to be saying "OMG!", while her friend said, "SRSLY?" I couldn't figure out how to do it, though. Polymer clay was my only thought, but then how would they carry them? I ended up leaving well enough alone and shipping them out last night. I can't wait to hear the reactions!
