{Project Twenty-Six on Friday’s – ‘can you guess my favorite childhood book?’}

I’m excited about this weeks Project 26 – Can you guess my favorite childhood book? How fun!!  I love things like this since I can take it in so many different directions. I didn’t know quite what this entailed and what angle to take so I just ran with what I was thinking – it’s a ‘modern twist’ on a classic.  So with these little clues I have shown in pictures I was only able to incorporate 2 characters since I didn’t have more peeps or the time to really delve into getting a cast together lol.  So there are MAJOR pieces left out of this story but I think you’ll be able to get it – a few of the images will give it away. Tell me your guesses and I’ll post the answer later today at the bottom of this post.  After guessing click on Val’s link continue the circle –  Val | The red balloon photography.  The circle is smaller this week, but that’s just temporary.

So, do you think you know my ‘favorite childhood book’?  You have to have it with the clues – right?  Some of you may have forgotten the boy with the bone in his hand….hmmmm.  I wanna hear your guesses.  Thanks for playing:)

Note:  the house photo {second picture from the bottom} – was taken by Katie Marshall who kindly allowed me to use her image.  Thanks so much Katie!!

UPDATE:  Yes!!  Many of you were right!  It’s Hansel & Gretel.  Here’ my silly book cover for the story:)  Thanks for playing!

Hi, I am not to sure how I have ended up on your site but WOW!!!
Your work is fantastic.
This may be an odd request but as your site loaded, my 5 year old son says: MOM turn that music up please! I like that song.
So I was just wandering what the title of the song is and the artist. If you could share I would be grateful.

Kara, your work never ceases to amaze me, but this photo shoot takes the prize….simply unbelievable. You need to do a huge collage of canvas wraps in a hallway or playroom or something, INCREDIBLE!!!

Absolutely breathtaking! The photos are amazing. Your talent is an inspiration to me! The subjects are both beautiful, too.
