32 Day Photo Challenge. Day 10: On the Shelf.
I don’t even know what to say about today’s challenge except that I found it the hardest of all so far. I might even have gone so far as to say “why did I sign up for this stupid challenge anyway?” It was a momentary lapse I assure you. I have many shelves in my house and right now I have my Christmas things out and many of them were once my mother-in-law’s who passed away in 2004. She was a collector of some very fun Christmas decorations, these paper mache Santa’s and elves but a few of them. Today was the first day I shared the theme with Mike and when he saw I was struggling with it, he said I should do “Sh-elf”. Get it. “On the Sh-Elf” using an elf on the shelf … of course you got it, but I thought it was a terribly lame idea since I already did an elf picture. So then he says “you should make a collage.” So I actually thought that was a great idea so I pulled out my Photoshop Elements book and went to work taking pictures of things on my shelves and putting them into a collage. Only problem is that more than an hour later I hated everything I did so kept “Cmd Z”ing everything. That’s Undo in Mac talk for you folks not in the know. Soooo, in the end I have a “On the Sh-elf Collage” (of two pictures) … not my dream picture by any means but I’ll bet it makes my hubby smile that I actually used his ideas! I should get points for that, right? Love you Mike. Are you smiling!
