It's been awhile since I last post...

A lot has been going on since I last posted. I am taking Karen Russell's photography class. That has taken up a lot of my time. I am really beginning to understand how my camera works and what settings I need for different lighting situations.

Yesterday Gigi and I were scrapping all afternoon. She made cards and I worked on making Valentines Decorations. It was fun. Here are a couple of photos of her making cards.

I applied to a Design Team Call over at My Scrapbook Nook. The list will be posted today for the semi finalists. Then there will be a 2 week meet and greet and see how you fit in before the final cut is made. I am hopeful, but I there is a lot of talent out there, so I am keeping it real too. LOL

I also have been trying to walk 5 miles, 4 times a week. Some weeks I am more successful with this than others. Last week, I walked only 10 miles. The week before, 7. I think I am going to go today, and get it over with.

I have also been scrapping a lot. Here is my latest page that I made. It's one of my favs.

Can I take your order?

This is Gigi. She dressed up as a 1950's dinner waitress for preschool. Preschool was celebrating the 50th day of school. I am trying to make my photos into art that tells a story rather than just another photo. I did do some editing for this result. My goal is to take a photo like this without any or very little editing . Regardless, she is a cutie and her personality works well with my style.

With my first post of 2010, I share some fabulous news!

I entered Tim Holtz contest for the 12 tags of Christmas. All you had to do is complete the 12 be inspired by his work and email photos of them to him. Then he randomly choose one winner and then decided to choose 15 choice artists.

Boy was I suprised to see my name among the 15.

Tim Holtz is a Rock Star and I adore him! Can't wait to see what he does next. click here to see my work. It is under melissa brown.
