smile...dream...love...


Happy Monday!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I got almost everything crossed off my to-do list...so that made me happy!

Here is a quick card I made with my Text Box stamp set. I really love the new color (from last months release), Ocean Tide...really pretty!

I spent some time on Friday roaming around outside and in the house taking random pictures...I just LOVE my camera! Ever since I have moved my dial to "M" (for manual), picture taking is such a challenge. I have to say that some days I get bad, blurry, out of focus pictures...but that is the great thing about digital cameras...the delete button. I have joined a photography forum (it is $6 per month)called Clickin Moms (not just for moms, btw). I have really learned so much over there!!! The people are really nice and really talented! I finally had the nerve to upload a photo in the "critique me" section. I was really nervous...but hey, that is how you learn right? I have really been working on focus and especially focusing on peoples eyes...and since my family isn't really enthusiastic about posing for me, I grabbed one of Ashley's dolls from the garage, and shot away. So here is the picture I posted, and I think I got it this time (not counting all the others that didn't make it, lol!).

Random note: I left the doll on my counter on Friday night...and when Josh and Sharon came home, they were really creeped out, lol! I suppose I should have warned them.

Enjoy Today!
