I think I'll start a new post topic called M.A.P. I love maps but M.A.P. on this blog will stand for Making A Point. Perhaps it will get you thinking and introduce a new challenge or idea for your creative juices.
One of the last assignments I accepted from the magazine I worked for was to hand over the camera to one of my kids and let them take pictures and then I was to scrapbook with the photos they took. For me, it was easy. My oldest daughter, she's 11, got the photography bug this past summer so all I had to do was take the photos she'd already snapped and do something with them.
However, since it's usually me behind the camera, it was really fun to see her perspective. I really thought she'd take pictures of her friends posing in silly fashion poses, or her sisters pulling faces - you know, kids stuff. But she didn't. She actually took some really great shots. (The stop sign photo from the previous post was one of hers)
So, in Making A point, why not hand your camera off to someone else, a kid, a husband, a friend, and have them take the photos for awhile. Don't tell them what to take photos off, just give them the camera and wait patiently for them to give it back. Perhaps you'll be surprised by what they shoot and hopefully it will give you some new material to scrapbook with.
Then, of course, pop into Judy's to pick up the supplies you need to scrapbook the photos. And, you can even send me an email of the completed results and we can share them on the blog.
P.S. The fun papers used on my layout are from Judy's - they are warm and friendly and make me happy.
