A New Year’s Resolution…

So, today I was reading I Heart Faces’ and there is an amazing article about taking at least one random picture a day for a year.  I have set this as my challenge for myself.  I absolutely love scrapbooking my family’s life and I have always been a fan of candid shots.  This love of candid shots probably goes back to my childhood.  Every year at Christmas my family, along with my Dad’s side of the family, would pose for a group picture.  Then, we always, let loose and got silly and took a goofy picture.  Those pictures are the pictures I have always treasured!  Those candid, silly pictures are glimpses into the personalities of each of us!  So, wish me luck as I begin capturing my family (and hopefully myself) in life, not posed or propped! 

I have a couple of scrapbook layouts to share today.  I have been working on scrapbooking the outtakes from my daughter’s senior pictures.  I hope you are inspired by these layouts that capture some random silliness! 

Christmas 2011 106

Design paper is MME Stella and Rose.  The pictures and the tag are matted on paper from DCWV’s current Fall stack.

This awesomely cute stamp is from Unity.

Christmas 2011 110

Design paper is MME Lost & Found Two.  The “Just You” and the letters for Stephanie’s name are Unity stamps. 

So, do you notice anything remarkably similar in the layouts (besides my daughter, lol)?  The pose my dad is doing in the top one and the pose my daughter is doing in the second one?  How funny is that?!  I only noticed that they are doing the same gesture when I was taking the pictures of the layouts for the blog post!  I guess this is another thing that has inspired me to capture us in our candid moments too!  What other things have I missed that my children do like my parents?  Never again!  So look out family and friends (you will not be spared either because you are important parts of who we are)!!!! 

God Bless!
