VERY cute!! I like that you had him pose as if he was caught in the jar-quite creative. The tutorial was great, too!

I love this!! I had copies of pictures of my daughter when she was a baby, naked in a pile of flowers, and I painted wings on them. I never knew what to do with them. I don't have them, anymore, but I could make new ones, and she would love it!!
