Sometimes You Get a Shot...Or How NOT TO TAKE A PICTURE!

...and sometimes you just don't!
I am sitting here all by myself (well, the dog is here) laughing out loud at how bad these photos are.  The problem is that my layout has a clear overlay and despite all attempts I kept getting a reflection.  The layout is so way cute in real life but looks just plain awful here!  Oh well...what can ya do?!
OK, this first one was done after I tried taking it the usual way...which was standing over it on the floor.  That didn't work because all you got was a photo of me taking a picture of the layout.  It looked like I was looking in a mirror! LOL!
So then I propped it in a chair.  and the flash accidentally wen off so huge light throwback!...
So then I took the flash off and got another great picture of me taking a picture of the layout! LOL! Great job, Susan!
Then I decided to try holding it in my hand and moving it so there would be no reflection.  Uh...obviously didn't work!
I put it back in the chair and tried from a different angle:
 Well, that's a great picture...LOL!  You can see everything so clearly! ;)
So then I just took the overlay off and put it back in the chair but now it looks nekkid (as we say in the south!) because the overlay is what makes the layout!
Oh well...maybe  you can use your imagination and dream up what it really looks like in person...or better yet, come over for a cup of coffee and I'll show you!

Anyway, this layout has to do with this past summer where every Tuesday David and I had a date to the $1 movie.  We would go to the mall, go to the movie which he would watch anywhere from 10 minutes to 45 minutes but when he was done he was done!  Then we'd ride the carousel, eat pizza (which is what he's doing here) and get a cookie and then head home.  It was so much fun for both of us and I look forward to date Tuesday again this summer!
I used products from Fancy Pants to complete this way cuter in real life than on your computer layout.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Any picture would never do your LOs justice anyway, Susan. Always Awesome. I'd love to come over for a cuppa with you ... someday! I'll bring my scrapbooks too, LOL.

  2. Ok, I'm virtually sitting in that chair enjoying a cup of tea, looking at your scrapbooking & chatting with you. The Tues movie memories are expressed wonderfully in the layout & in your words.

  3. Cute layout! Don't you just hate it when you are trying to take a picture of your project and the "shiny" just ruins it....:)Amy
