Blog like Someone is Reading

Or, fake it till ya make it!  Ultimately, I blog to share ideas with my fellow scrappers.  I am not a terribly fancy scrapbooker and most of my layouts take at the most an hour to complete.  I know that there are others out there like me...those that don't have huge chunks of  time to devote but still want to create. While I marvel and enjoy those scrapbook artists that churn out absolute pieces of art...I just don't have the talent or time.  I have been pouring over other scrapbooker's blogs to try to find a sense of where I wanted to take mine.  I still haven't figured it out and that's OK.  I am going to continue to blog like I know what I am doing and maybe one these days I will figure it out! LOL

 I am still on the search for the perfect place to shoot my layouts.  The layout on top was shot indoors and it has a light yellow hue.  For reference I posted the actual file from one of the pics in the layout. Yep, just a little different!  Back to the drawing board .
I shot this layout in the backyard and I like the way it turned out.  The problem with that, is the small window of time where the sun is shining in that exact spot is very short and generally I am at work.  Ideally, I would like to find a spot that is nearly 24 hr ready.  Thankfully, I stumbled across a blog that had some helpful hints and I am going to try them out...first I need to buy several more lamps!
So, in conclusion: I will continue to find my way in the blogging world, share my love of scrapbooking and hopefully give a few people a couple ideas here and there along the way!

Photographing layouts is s challenge for me too! That's why I wind up filling my blog with cards. They are much easier yo photograph!
