This could be a LONG post...

I have so much to share...but I think I will save some of it for a post later this week!

First off, I just have to show you what happens when you lose CONTROL of your camera...so here goes:


In the true spirit of Project 365, I will occasionally relinquish the camera so that our Project 365 album truly reflects the day to day happenings of our family...that being said, I encouraged my son, Joel, age 14, to get our "photo of the day" on Tuesday.


He hangs out @ home quite a bit during the summer, with random outings here & there, so I thought this would be fun for him - he loves taking pictures just about as much as I do!


Imagine my surprise last night as I was reviewing the photos on my digi camera...OF COURSE, a 14 year old boy is going to turn the camera on himself??!!?? & his favorite kitty, Shadow!







Honestly, these photos just {tickle} me, so one of them will officially be included in our Project 365! & what do you think about Shadow?

I can read her mind...& she is not a very happy kitty...actually she hates the camera! She turns away from the camera & eventually just runs & hides...I'm guessing her photo shoot with Joel was quite traumatic...LOL!!!


OKAY...now for something scrappy! I recently discovered a new challenge blog...gotta love those right?!? I first met Samantha over at Vintage Plum and now she has started her very own color combo challenge! & she has a design team call going on right now...so I think I will give it a try!


Here's her blog: SPCC


And here's the Color Combo #2:





I LOVE this combo! & it worked perfectly for some photos that I just took! My layout is also based on sketch #24 at 52sketches52weeks!

I LOVE what you did with the colors. I always go for pink as the main color because I am a pink lover so I loved seeing yours with the green as the main color. Great job with the colors AND with the sketch! Thanks for playing, girl :O)
Hugs,
Samantha
