I guess this is a case of better late than never, although I have made the final link. I got the photo scavenger hunt finished this year (last year I failed on the last one – I forgot to take a photo of myself with a craft tool). No worries this year – I had a choice for the compulsory final photo of me with an item representing the season. I settled for one taken by Puddle Duck during our walking tour of Copenhagen, when I stopped to tie her shoelace.
In previous years I have presented my round up as a slide show. This year I have created a double page spread for my scrapbook. I used the washi tape and a selection of embellishments from October’s counterfeit kit with two sheets of white card stock and a sheet of Studio Calico pp depicting frames. And then added even more embellishments. It had a lot of white space when I started but by the time I’d added a title and journalling it was filling up fast.
Apologies for my wonky photo taking. You can see more final roundup photos on Rinda’s blog here. Thank-you Rinda for another inspiring challenge. Long may they continue.
Nearly half of the photos I chose for the final cut were taken on our Cruise. There were so many photo opportunities and I have a wonderful ZIZO from the Hermitage museum in St Petersburgh. At first glance this looks like a painting – it’s Catherine the Great, Tsarina of Russia.
I’m still sorting through those holiday photos to put together an order for prints. I’m going for a Project Life pocket format – I’m hoping it will speed up my scrapping, but photo editing is taking longer because I am joining two photos in one PSE file to print at 4 X 6 so that I can get 3 X 4 prints. I had a load done but I made the mistake of setting the PSE canvas to 4 X 6 and when I uploaded for printing I got a warning that the files were medium quality. I now have to redo all of them at 12 X 8 to get a good quality print.
I’m going back to editing now. I may be some time…………..
