WELCOME TO FEBRUARY 2014 PHOTO FUN


Through this group I've made some wonderful friends and enjoy meeting new friends in our group each and every month. If you are joining for the first time this month, you're in for a treat - what a FABULOUS group of caring/sharing women. Welcome everyone!

Lots of us have cameras we use now and again for a snapshot or two. Some of us have new cameras itching to be put to use and get more familiar with. Sound like FUN?! It IS!!!! Get your camera out and USE it. Just take pictures, share pictures, and stretch your camera use beyond where it is today. We all love photos -and photos are the heart and soul of our scrapbooks. Let's take GREAT photos - Experiment. Try different lighting, try "on location" shoots -even if that means taking an orange outside and taking it's photo on the lawn.

******************

RULES:

1- Take 10 photo's throughout the month. These can be of what ever you choose. You may post them at any time (just try not to post all at once). Please link them to your gallery for easy access for comments.

2 - NO STRESS - if you aren't having fun it's not worth doing

3 - Comments - We all LOVE comments on our photos so please make an effort to visit/comment as possible, but ---
SEE RULE 1 - NO STRESS. If you don't have time to comment on photos (or can only comment on some) that's FINE!

4 - MISSING PHOTOS - SO WHAT? See rule 1 - NO STRESS. Life gets in the way - it happens to all of us. Post your photos when you can - See RULE 1 - NO STRESS

Just join in and SHARE!!!

********************

How to add a clickable image to your post.

3. When the box comes up mark the IMG Code. Here you can also choose the size of the image you want to add to the thread. Click on the code box..it will turn purple. Right click on it to copy.
4. Next, go to the thread where you want to post your image. Click in the text space and paste your code with a right click of your mouse.
5. TaDa!!! You did it!

********************

End Of Month Photo Contest

We will be having an end of month photo contest each month. You may submit 1 photo YOU have personally taken. PM me with it by the date requested to be entered in our POLL. Oh, make sure you have the "Allow Public Embedding" checked so I may post it in the poll. We will have one winner per month unless there is a tie. If you are the monthly winner PM me your address. I will be looting my personal scrapbook stash to share with you to help keep my cost down. You might find an extra surprise in there too! Just so it's fair to all our players...please make sure if you submit a photo for the contest you have completed all 10 photo's for the month and YOU have personally taken them during the current month. The mini challenge photo's are not required, simply for fun. You can however, submit one of your challenge photo's (mini's) to the contest.

**End of Month photo contest entry deadline: February 26th by 6pm EST (I will post poll the evening of the 26th)

Check this out! My gf Elaine (friends since we were 12 years old!!!!) calls me and wakes me up to ask if I have plans for Feb 6, 7 or 8th. I say no and she hangs up. A bit later she calls...by this time I am awake, and tells me she got tickets for the two of us to go see Jersey Boys on Broadway and she's also taking me out to the Olive Garden for dinner!!! Huh???? It's HER birthday on the 7th! She giggled and said, I promised Bob I would take care of you while he is away! I'm gonnna insist on at least paying for the dinner....but what a beautiful way to start my day! Friends!!!!!

Welcome Frau! We are a group of ladies who share our photos and so much more! We have grown to love and think of each other as family (only better in some cases ). So, again I say welcome!

JFF.....

Disk label By Desilu3131

As many of you know I always do disks at the end of the season for all our team players. Worked on this today for a bit and I think I like it. I think the parents will appreciate their kids pic on the label more than the kid, lol. I had to find a program that worked with my Mac as the one I've used in years past is not compatible. I found a free Avery program and it pretty much works the same as what I used to use. Do you think the photo is to bold or not faded enough? I know it's not a great shot....just a quickie. What's your opinion please....

Thanks Denise! I'm thinking it's good enough. I've been fighting with the printer tonight. Printed off another kids label and my ink was low. When I tried again the printer is giving me fits....the paper sensor doesn't think the paper is the right size....grrrr! Could be because I'm using the labels (or trying to) from the old program. I've printed on a piece of plain paper and am using the light to fit the label over and tape it on the paper.....apparently it's not worth the grief. Guess I'll buy the right labels and lose this fight!


Don't forget I'll be gone most of the day tomorrow. I don't think they will cancel the games even though we have a winter warning through tomorrow evening...these are league games and I'm pretty sure we have no time to make them up. The team we are playing we played a few weeks ago at our rink. Remember the game where the kids were big goons, their coach got ejected, and parents too? Oh...players were ejected too. Well, this is the same team....sigh. At least we are going knowing their coach is gone for the year along with one of the goon players. Their league officials are mortified with their behavior!

Have a great evening all! Hope to pop in sometime tomorrow night.

Oh....anyone else have a huge snow storm forecasted for early next week? I've heard just a bit on it and not actually where it's coming from. People here are going crazy. I've heard anywhere from 18-20"+. I'm ready!!!

Lori - label looks great! I love that the photo is faded, but the team logo and name/number are bolder. Looks great.
