We have been thrilled to have 116 photos link up this week!!!!  So excited that people have joined in and tagged us.

I have loved looking through everyones favourite photos!  It is the best part of the day.

So without further ado, here is our featured photos from week one!

Week One – My Favourites

I am so chuffed with my final four this week.  I love how each one captures the perfect moment.  Each one tells a story without need any tags or comments!

Pic 3: a little boys is ready to school with a monster backpack. Pic 4: Two little girls hold hand as they want down a path. All tagged on #capturingtheday

    What a lovely idea! The images you’ve both chosen are so lovely and seasonal. I’d love to join in one week but at the moment my instagram pics are a bit haphazard and random. I say at the moment…they always are. But i will try and get on board. I saw the tulle pom pom pic…totally loved it. And in awe that anyone could make so many pom poms esp with 2 little boys running around! 🙂

    Congratulations on your community doing so well! I’m using the hashtag and joining in, I do love the instagram communities! All of your favourites are fabulous! I chose the Winnettes picture as one of my favourites for my #pinklinker roundup this week too! And I love the Kerry Louis Norris picture, that really stood out as well! It’s really hard to pick isn’t it! Best of luck with your growing community!
