This week's new challenge over at Lasting Memories is "Anything Goes" with a New Beginning theme
When you get to my age finding something that is a new beginning in my life is a hard subject for a challenge :) You know what I mean "been there done that" is part of my language, but after thinking a few days and then thinking some more it dawned on me that I got the new smartphone last year. Now this is something new for me, my only need for a cell phone was exactly that a phone and if it had a camera then it was an added bonus. Well I keep hearing about instagram and kept seeing photos from instagram and some of the facebook groups I'm in wanted you to upload pictures and tag them in instagram, well thought best to check it out. After getting on the main site and it wanted a phone to attach it's app too then I knew it was time for a new phone. So I talked with my DIL Andrea about the straight talk plan and she said they also have refurbish phones you could buy at a cheaper price I started to check it out. She also sent me some links and after deliberating about it I found one phone I would try out you know "test the water" as they say. So now I have a smartphone and I Love It! But Instagram :) what a fun program and takes a better picture with the same camera on the phone than taking it with the phone camera alone. So my new journey has begun. For the layout I went to ScrapMuch? and used their January 8 sketch for the inspiration for my layout:
I was able to use one of the blocks for my journaling and the pictures took over the other blocks. This is a really fun layering type sketch and will need to keep this around a bit for future layouts. Since this topic is about a camera app I made sure that the layout was full of camera motifs
Lasting Memories too. Another layout to add to my 'All About Me' album :)
I'm also adding this to a new challenge blog: More Than Words: January challenge: Personality & Selfie.
I've notice since I have joined instagram that the photos I take are more of the happenings in my life and that is part of my personality, just as when I was a teen my personality then was totally different than what it is now :)(What does the word "PERSONALITY" inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired to create from it. Please explain in your blog post how it inspired you, if not already obvious. )
