Behind the Scenes - 12 Days of Summer

Well, that's a wrap! Thank you to everyone who took advantage of our Christmas in July promotion!

In case you missed any of the fun, here's a little recap of our 12 Days of Summer... plus some pretty great "behind the scenes" and blooper pics!

Feel free to sing along. It's hard not to!

For the 12 Days of Summer, Loops & Belles gave to me: Twelve Pink Flamingos, Eleven Flags a Waving, Ten Sandy Toes, Nine Watermelon Slices, Eight Burgers Grilling, Seven Books for Reading, Six Poolside Popsicles, Five Summer Dresses, Four Cups of Froyo, Three Prickly Pineapples, Two Donut Pool Floats, and a free print with every purchase!


It's always so exciting when a project turns out the way I hoped it would! 

There were a few speed bumps along the way - mostly due to my perfectionist nature - but more than anything, there were SO. MANY. LAUGHS.

Seriously, I couldn't have done this without the treasured friends who helped with the photos and shared the promotion on social media!

Side note: Y'all - my mom. She's such a rockstar. I'm going to have to promote her from intern to paid employee here soon. She's spreading the Loops & Belles love!

I'd be remiss if I didn't share some of the awesome outtakes from the process of creating the 12 Days of Summer...

My dear friend Brandi let us bring two GIANT donut pool floats over to her mama's house one Sunday evening so that we could capture the shot for Day 2. 

Naturally, the bloopers were my absolute favorite - and with her permission, it's my joy & pleasure to share them!

In an attempt to get me to have a natural smile in the Day 5 pictures, the Mister would make jokes and throw out random prompts to keep me from over-thinking. So here we have: "Lady Liberty," "Be Surprised," (which apparently had me putting my hands in the pockets of my dress) and "Hooray! We got the shot!"

Not pictured: "Titanic," "I'll never let go Jack," and my impression of the Rockettes during the reindeer dance. #SoRandom

The Mister snapped this pic while I was mid-frustration-stabbing the legs into the flamingos. When I sent it to my mom she exclaimed, "You had to put them together?!" Oh yes. And I cut my hand in the process. Creativity can be painful folks.

Oh, and just one more funny about the flamingos -- I feel like I should mention that this was the shot that I thought would be the easiest to capture. WRONG. One flamingo's beak kept falling off (insert crying laughing emoticon here) so I had run over, reattach his beak, run back, try to focus the camera and snap before it fell onto the ground again. I don't even want to think about how many times I did this routine.

I thought it'd be funny to make one of the flamingos a Rudolph impersonator -- seeing as how we were celebrating Christmas in July -- but clearly the flamingo had other ideas. (Beakless flamingo was cropped out in order to lessen the tragedy of this photo)

And that's all folks!!
I had an absolute blast with our 12 Days of Summer fun. 
I'm putting my mailman to work and getting these special packages on their way.
(Apparently, Santa is in the Caribbean this time of year...)
