WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER 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 upload a photo

2. Choose File and Upload. If you upload more than 1 file you can categorize them in "Same" or "Seperate" Projects.
3. Select Image Type.
4. Add Title and Description to your photo. You have the option to categorize also. If you keep your photos somewhere specific be sure to add them to the appropriate album. Make sure to "SAVE" your changes if you add them to an album. The SAVE button is at the bottom of the pop up box, you'll probably have to scroll down to see it.
5. If you choose to submit an image for our end of month contest, please be sure to mark the "ALLOW EMBEDDING"
6. Click Submit. Your photo will now be in your gallery.


How to add a clickable image to your post.
1. Pull up the image you wish to share in your gallery.
2. To the right of your photo you will see LINK (there will be a Facebook & Pinterest button next to it). Click the link.
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: SEPTEMBER 28th by 3pm EST (I will post poll the evening of the 28th)

I'm in for Sept. Congrats, Kayla on the August Photo Poll!

Lori, I nearly named my daughter Piper. Hubby and I didn't share with anyone what names we were considering and were really debating. I finally ran Piper by my best friend. She had a funny reaction because she knew a dog named Piper. That's all I needed. My daughter is Meg. :-) Will someday name a dog Piper!

Thanks everyone!!

I finished preparing my breakfast for tomorrow. I'm cooking next week. I'm having baked oatmeal with peaches for breakfast tomorrow. Also baking fresh bread and blueberry muffins in the morning.

Sounds good Kayla!

Do you do the overnight (in the fridge) oatmeal?

Working on a dishcloth for my aunt tonight...she burnt one I had made her a long time ago (couple years anyway) by leaving it on her stovetop.

I made 2 crowns today....they turned out so cute! My next project (well, I have a few I need to work on) is a pair of slouch boots for Annie.

Thinking about turning in....

Kayla...will get your pkg out asap.

Doing some power cleaning this morning....DFIL and DD are coming over to eat today. We are supposed to get rain, possible strong storms. Hopefully DH will have a good window of dry to cook in.
