We wish you a merry Christmas

By davey_griffo
From the 7 Nomates. That's:

Billy - Grumpy & star of the avatar
Bertie - Happy
Bradley - Sleepy
Bernard - Bashful (pronounced the American way, BernARd, not Bernud, cos he thinks it's cool)
Brian - Dopey
Benny - Doc
Norman - Sneezy (See below).

Their dad Bertram wanted them all to begin with B, but mum, Norma, got fed up. Mind you, dad'd have named them all Bertram, if he'd had his way. No imagination some people. He got his way with one (Happy above), but curiously not the eldest, that was Billy, because he got confused as to which of the septuplets was born 1st.


Please view large to witness the full horror!! Smile

I treated myself to a new camera for Christmas (the new Sony a550, for those interested in that sort of thing). This is the 2nd time I've used it in anger (the 1st, another Nomates project, got put on hold, as I needed a Christmas card for the lovely Cathy).

Well, I had to celebrate with the boys, didn't I? Especially since I've got no mates.

I've recreated the outfits from my 1st posting, the party ( link ).

I'm trying to convince Cath to play Snow White & reshoot, but she's seriously camera shy.

Thank you all, & a very Merry Christmas.

Martin - It took 2 mornings. I had to do it when Cath was at work, as it was a surprise.

Moira - Hey, I never thought of that!!! Smile
Mind you, you should see the test shots, they're truly horrific!!

This is superbly conceived and performed; I love the humour.
Wishing a wonderful Christmas to all the Nomates!

Thank you all for your kind comments, & your sympathy for the state of my mental health. Smile

I had to do something different, didn't I? After all, everyone will be out snapping snowy shots, since we've had some now. Though it may be fun to do a Nomates snowball fight, if we ever get that much snow. Had about half a dozen flakes so far. A very poor showing.

Seriously!!!! This stupid thing doesn't always register my vote. Of course I voted for just didn't show up. I shall make sure it does before I leave here. Smile Thanks for telling me.
