Explore Day One - Me Myself and I

Day one : 'Take a self portrait ..and maybe show the  tool you use to take it with'....mm...not too scary ....' take a few shots so you can pick a good one'-  took loads and they were all out of focus - should have used the other camera - never mind. it was spontaneous and this is about the most sensible of the lot!

Note to self......after just coming back from holiday,am feeling relaxed - so just make sure you take your time over things, 'calm down and carry on ' as they say. You don't need to do everything at 100 miles an hour .......
Why did I take particular interest in this class?
I love all Shimelle's classes and love receiving those little friendly emails in my inbox every day and look forward to making more friends via Blogland. As always theses classes help me to sit back and look at things around me and inspire me to scap things in my life I would normally think are boring-but then surely that's what scrapbooking's all about  isn't it?

You're so right in your note to self, and it's true, getting to know more blog friends through these classes is half the fun. Loving the photo of you

Great photo Den,I'm building upto doing one for Rinda's Scavenger Hunt. I haven't taken part in this course, as the timing just doesn't work- between houseguests and me going to the UK for a couple of weeks...I'm looking forward to watching what you're all up to though!

Hi Denise! Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit. I am not signed up for this class with Shimelle, but it sounds like it's going to be a fun class! No one loves self-portraits, but yours turned out very nice.

I've been having a catch up this morning and I have been really enjoying seeing these lovely self portraits. I didn't sign up for class this time round, but I'm still getting some of the fun!

I'm glad you had a lovely relaxing break too. A bit of sun makes all the difference, doesn't it?
