Have I shared the Teds photo prompt challenge with you yet?
It’s a challenge I created to get you thinking about scrapbooking the ‘little’ things in life- they’re important, too! We all take pictures, but for most of us, they live in our phones- and eventually our computers- never to come out to play again. Do something creative with your pictures!
Beyond that, I just wanted to create an activity that everyone could participate in- just for the fun of it. I bet some of the prompts are things you’ve never thought of taking a picture of! (I haven’t!)
So, how does it work? It’s really easy. There is a different photo prompt for every day in the month of January. Each prompt coordinates with the day of the month it is (for example, on January 4, you’ll take a picture using prompt #4, frost). Don’t be afraid to think outside the box to get your photos taken! They don’t always need to be taken literally!
The beauty of this project is that you get to decide what you’ll do with all the pictures you take throughout the month- start your own project life album and commit to putting your life into an album (for the year); save some of the ones that are meaningful to you, and add them to your pre-existing album; or lastly, participate- just for fun- and delete the pictures when you’re done.
This project might be ideal for new scrapbookers, too. This would be a fantastic way to introduce them to our hobby and what types of pictures a person might scrapbook. (Outside of your typical vacation, holiday or birthday themes. Those are giveaways).
Did you know that’s how I got my business name- The Everyday Scrapbooker? I want my kids- or anyone else that may not know our story- to get a glimpse inside our daily lives- the good, the bad, the ugly. It’s all worth remembering. So, I started adding them to my albums. It became a priority- and it struck a chord with those that I shared it with. Let’s start a revolution! Scrapbook it all, not just the happy, momentous occasions.
Do you know someone that enjoys taking pictures? Or someone that enjoys paper crafting challenges? Send them my way! This challenge is taking place on Facebook, and anyone can join! You’ll see me talking about this across my social media- basically here, Instagram and my Facebook business page. Just drumming up interest!
I’d love to see you join! This will be a year- long project, so you can join any time! But, of course, the sooner you join the longer you’ll have fun for! Promise!
