Hi everyone! Emily here! Today I have a quick layout to share with you. I have been going through my photos recently and was noticing how too often I find myself taking photos that are at "just the right moment." You know...one where my daughter's hair isn't in her eyes, where there aren't toys on the floor, where there's not food all over my son's shirt. These are the photos I tend put in layouts, on my blog, and post on Facebook. But the thing about these photos is that they while they look good, they aren't really...well, real. Let's face it...life is not perfect, so why are people (myself included!) so afraid to share reality with the world?
I took a ton of "real" shots last weekend. They definitely fall into the realm of "keeping it real." I wanted to feature them on a single layout as a snapshot of a single weekend. I am not, by nature, a multi-photo scrapper, so this was quite a challenge for me, but I liked how it all turned out! I used my Selphy printer to print four photos per 4x6 sheet and then arranged them into a mismatched grid pattern. Finally, I embellished with some my Ormolu Fact or Fiction favorites!
So this week...I challenge you to take some "real" photos. Don't worry about the details...just capture life as it is. I would love for you to link up some of your photos or any layouts you create with them! Have a great Monday!
