DAY ONE OF FIVE.....

HH Day 1

It happened on September 1st. You know... It was the day the Holiday Catalog was released! The mailman brought my catalog, so I calmly sat down with a cup of tea to begin thumbing through. As I turned the pages, it didn't take long to feel the magic and discover new, exciting products to add to my SUPPLIES TO ORDER LIST. One of those was the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper on page 47. One glance and I knew this was no ordinary DSP. You can feel the magic too!!

HH Day 1 -1

TAKE NOTE: Using the HO HO HO from the OH, WHAT FUN STAMP SET, I stamped upside down and backwards to say OH. Isn't that what you say when you see a ghost!!!

HH Day 1 -2

Snip, snip, snip with my Paper Snips for a creative twist...

HH Day 1 -3

BEFORE AND AFTER...

On 09/22/15, I shared pictures taken with my new camera. I should have learned more about my camera before posting. Here are some BEFORE and AFTER shots...

 

Photography-1

These before and after pictures should be a reminder than taking BETTER BLOG PHOTOS don't happen by chance...

Photography-2

The color and clarity are enhanced when you KNOW YOUR CAMERA, and WHEN YOU UTILIZE PROPER LIGHT...

DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT...

Goodness! My new camera is not my friend, as you can see by the quality of these recent photos. (Blurry, dark, not in focus, faded colors, need I say more!!).....

1

Even though my camera is not my friend, I'm gaining on it...

2

This card is pretty cool in real life, but not in this picture...

3

Mercy! This one is too blurry and dark...

4

Thanks for looking at them anyway...

5

...even though they didn't make the cut!!
