SIRIGANNADAM GELGE!!!

ELLARIGOO NAMASKARAGALU!!!!

I know I am totally late.... But better late than never....:)
Kannada Rajyotsavada Shubhashayagalu!!!
Karnataka was formed on November 1st in 1973.....
Until then ours was Mysore region.....
So on november 1st we celebrate Kannada Rajyotsava or Karnataka Formation Day...
On this day, we hoist our Kannada flag, the red and yellow flag...........
So I had thought of doing something related to this theme in these colours!!!!
But I had done this Quilled bird and had forgotten all about it!!!!!
Now suddenly yesterday, when I was searching for something else among my arty things , I found this and so I am posting this atleast now :) :) :)

I have put both the after and before versions!!!!





This is a very recent photo of my daughter....
This was taken for the Fancy Dress Competition during the Children's Day Celebrations!!!
I had dressed her up as Jhansi Ki Rani!!!!!












This photo was takenin Shravana masa of 2009!!!!

I have to edit a lot of photoes of my daughter's other photoes too.... but those will need a lot of time ....which at the moment I dont have :( :(
