A Challenge....

I don't know about you, but my camera goes practically everywhere with me. I am always snapping photos, jumping on chairs and tables to get the shot, and driving those around me crazy with my addiction to photography. So.... you can imagine how my lens was snapping away on my latest vacation! My favorite stop on the trip was Catalina Island off of the California coast. So beautiful! I found myself (as usual) taking a gazillion photos of the "atmosphere." I love to take pictures of places, buildings, nature... etc. because I think it's great to remember the beauty of life as well as the people in it. Now what do I do with all these seemingly random photos you ask? Well I scrapbook them of course! When we go on a trip or have and occasion that I take a lot of these kinds of photos I do a "taste of" or "pieces of" layout. That way I can remember all the wonderful things I saw that inspired me. Here is an example of a "Random Pieces of Calgary Layout" it did recently:

I labeled each photo with a number so that I can journal about each one individually since they don't necessarily "go" together. (I still need to do the journaling :)

Now here are a few photos I took on Catalina Island, I'll use these to do a "taste of" layout as well. I post it for some more ideas after I finish it.

Now I challenge you to do add some "random pieces" to your scrapbook projects! Be sure to send me a photo of your project too! Have a great day!
Oh, p.s. I have some new goodies for the shop that I've started listing, be sure to check them out! More to come throughout the weekend too!

I love that layout and to be honest, I'm intrigued as to what kind of edibles were in that bowl. It looked tasty.

You have a wonderful blog ... it's my first time checking it out. BTW my hubby and I were married on Catalina Island in 2000 ... it was the perfect spot. Your photos bring back such sweet memories. Thanks for sharing!
