Today’s challenge is a motivating one. It will give you an excuse to create, or to admire it.

Take a photo of SOMETHING YOU MADE.

I have to make something new today because I have taken photos of all my projects. It should be a FUN challenge.


COLOR CHALLENGE January 9, 2012

I figured I’d toss in a nice color combo from a website that I’ve been following on Pinterest to help jump-start your creativity and motivate you to get the sketch challenge completed.  I just LOVE the coolness of this color combo.  I hope it inspires you!  Even if it only inspires you to get a bowl of ice cream.  LOL  If you are looking for some other color combo to match your photos visit I am amazed at all the wonderful color inspiration from this blog.

Alright scrapbooking friends…a little challenge to help take your mind off of the photo challenges and onto your FAVORITE past-time! Gather up some photos and make a layout. This sketch is very inspiring…and don’t let it make you feel like you can’t accomplish it just because your photos don’t match. Sometimes, you just have to use the foundation for the layout and make your photos fit it. Go for it!  I LOVE the banner on this LO and the scalloped edges and circles along the bottom.  After I finish the LO I started on New Year’s I will work on a LO using this sketch and upload for you all.  I hope to see what you do with this layout sketch too!


Photo Challenge Upload

Finally I have uploaded my pics from this week’s photo challenges. I really had a LOT of FUN taking these pics. However, I wasn’t so good at taking a pic each day. But hey…at least I did all the challenges right??
Here they all are:



Now the funny thing is that I dressed up for my self-portrait as I didn’t feel like going anywhere that day.  So…I thought I’d share what I REALLY did that day and a pic of what I really looked like that day and what I LOVE to do the MOST!




This challenge was a little tough for me as the day the challenge occurred, I had to work.  I didn’t feel much like taking a pic of my uniform because well, it’s just plain boring.  And…I’ve taken pics of my uniform before for a special reason.  So…I decided to take a photo of the outfit I wore on New Year’s Eve.  I felt so good wearing this outfit that day.  It made me feel so good about myself and I felt like a fashion diva.


I enjoyed taking this photo.  It wasn’t a really cloudy day when I took it, so I had to keep going outside to see if there were some interesting clouds to take a photo of.  Finally I got my chance.  This was taken from my mother’s backyard.  Quite lovely I must say.



I just LOVE the color TEAL and what better place to find things in the color I love than Pier 1 Imports.  I love how the TEAL pops out of the brown on the first pillow.  The second pillow doesn’t have as much teal, but I just couldn’t resist the paisleys.  I don’t know why, but I’m drawn to them like crazy!  Must be from the era I was born in.  LOL



Well I wanted to capture a photo of the ones I love for this challenge.  Since I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to use the most, I decided to set up two different photo shoots.  These 3 men are the most important in my life so I HAD to get a photo of all 3 of them.  And I couldn’t miss out on focusing on the most important man in my life.  Don’t you just LOVE the expression on his face!


I wanted to take a photo of the music box I blogged about earlier, but I couldn’t find it.  I think it got buried in the Christmas stuff and will not be found for another season.  So…here is the photo I chose to take instead.  My uncle Gunter from Germany worked at a pewter factory and always sent us little figurines.  My mom had them displayed for many years and when I moved out, she gave me a collection of them.  These little kitties are my favorite.  I just love how playful they are.


I went to Charming Charlie’s for the first time with my BFF Kathie on Thursday.  I found some KILLER deals and managed to get out of there spending less than $20.  One of my FAVE goodies that I bought were these owl earrings.  I was thrilled about the McQueen Blue color and the face that they were OWLS!  Who could ask for anything better!

Well that’s all for this week!  I hope you all did a FINE job keeping up with the challenges.  If you didn’t, don’t feel bad, catch up today or tomorrow.  Sometimes life gets a little hectic, but you won’t regret taking each one of these photos and remembering something special about them.  YOU CAN DO IT!
