This is so cool. I love the way you have included photos of The Girl and her toys. I recognise that toyhouse!

Cheri said...

very unique Mel. But I have to say what won me over was just hearing your voice! Reading blogs it is easy to forget that everyone sounds so different.

Heather said...

Brilliant! What a clever way of involving your child in the story - I never thought of that :)
Great filming job too & how nice to hear your voice (even if it is the posh version!) xx

Karen said...

You are such an inventive girl Mel I love the concept of making a book with The Girl in and then to share it with us was genious xxx

Rhona said...

That was very cute, what a lovely idea. xx

Ladkyis said...

Fantastic! a perfect story for a Sunday, and the pictures were so good too! Love it, love it, love it!

Oh my gosh Mel! I can't tell you how much I love hearing the sound of your voice! It's great to discover a whole new aspect of you. And the Tomboy is terrific in this, too!

What a fabulous idea, to take a well known tale and remake it. So lovely to hear your voice, I will be able to conjure it up in future when I am reading your blog posts:)
Now how on earth did you persuade the Tomboy to take on such a girly role in the story?

Sian said...

Ooh, you have turned it into Jackanory - how cool is that?!

An excellent addition to Storytelling Sunday. As always, many thanks for joining in. It's always a pleasure.

Irene said...

Oh, it's really good..the sort of thing we used to do at school to make big books! I'm going to send a link to my daughter to play to DGS :)

Jimjams said...

So cute - funny to hear your voice ... like when you read books and see the characters when you watch films ... not quite what I had in my head, but it will be from now on!

Wanda said...

How very clever! You do a great job with the voices, and I love the addition of the real life Goldilocks!

Alison said...

Lovely to hear your voice, Mel....what a great book you and the tomboy made!

This is absolutely fantastic! I love that you've recorded this as a video (I'd love to give it a shot but haven't carpe-ed the diem yet). Brilliant - I feel inspired.

And it was a lovely story too. Good voices :D

Sandra said...

oh my word, what a clever idea ... I love your creative thought process :)

Melissa said...

I saw your comment on Cathy Zielske's site about learning PSE - just wanted to link you up to the free workshop I'm doing - you can read more about it here http://mshanhun.com/digital-scrapbooking-misting/

Lizzie said...

How cool is this?!! It was so nice to hear you speak, Mel! I see what you mean about "Melsh" accent, but you have a nice voice.
Well done Mel and well done The Girl (though she's a bit bigger than the photos now...).
Made me smile a lot!

Sandie said...

Lovely to hear you reading your story, Mel. And what a coincidence that Shimelle should suggest making a video after you had posted! Well done you!!

Melissa said...

What a wonderful book and a great way to include your storytelling. Now that I've heard it, I'll have to adjust to your real voice in my head! I love being reminded that y'all have such a different accent! Loved the story. Thanks for sharing.

Gail said...

That was neat and so great to hear your voice.

scrapchick said...

Adorable! What a lovely story voice you have as well.

anneberit said...

Loved the video - what a cool book you've made!!

Sherry C said...

What a cute idea and a treasured keepsake!!

VernellC said...

How cool! Love your story and the photos.

VernellC said...

How cool! Love your story and the photos.

Amy said...

Mel, that young lady has such an expressive face - she has illustrated the story so very well!

I also love your tags for this post - 'Posh Reading Voice', at TFYO's pre-school they have a song all about voices .... this could be added as one, it goes along the lines of ... 'This is my talking voice, this is my singing voice, this is my squeaky voice, this is my loud voice' ... etc.

Hi Mel ~ Just catching up over here and I let you read the entire "Three Bears" story to me in your lovely reading voice! And LOVED it, and I loved seeing those cute photos of The Girl (before she was the Tomboy). What fun you two must have had putting that together! :o) Well done, my friend!

You did a lovely job with the story; I so enjoyed listening and seeing it.
