A bit late to the party ~ SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY snuck up... this week's words are: STRIKE A POSE, FOOTWEAR, HOBBY, SHINY, & COLOR ME GREEN

Loads of adorable STRIKE A POSE interpretations can be found at ASHLEY'S blog, RAMBLINGS & PHOTOS, the host blog for SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY. Click on over & see what's been posted.

When I saw STRIKE A POSE, I just had to put the three dogs pictures together from last Christmas. From left to right: LOLA {visiting Big Bear Lake}, SEBASTIAN {chewing on his holiday present & YES, his fur is that shiny!}PEANUT {relaxing on the hearth at home}. JPE & I don't have pets, but we see them on our family visits...

Okay! Okay! I'm SURE everyone has some of these?... eh, FOOTWEAR "casualties." These are off to the rag bag because they've lost their mate

I have many HOBBIES... but my favorite is combining a love of stickers, scrapbook paper, and photographs into books. I created this book, LYDIA'S ADVENTURE, to commemorate her first TENT CAMPING trip with us.
This is not the actual book I made, but a color copy that was covered with clear contact paper. LYDIA'S ADVENTURE was laminated & adorned with beads at the top of the three ring binding. She was learning to read, so the story line was simple & included pictures from all the activities we had during that three day period.
I know there are digital book options {Blurb, Apple, Snapfish, etc}, but I still love the cutting, pasting, and gluing items down on chipboard. I think it keeps the treasured books a bit more primitive & personal. A bit FOLK-ARTY!

The red orb & silvery candle holder, set against the turquoise Native American table runner really "sparkle." I added a "mirrored frame" using PICNIK to accentuate & make these items very SHINY.
Have to say... I am going to miss using PICNIK's simple-to-use editing features. There's got to be a replacement that is user-friendly without costing a bundle of $$ and time to learn a new program. Surely there is a computer programer that could put something together for us "picknikers" to use? {Oh - if so, keep the sticker assortment ~ I love the variety}.

Don't you L-O-V-E this reptile?? such a vibrant turquoise-green body with lime green & chartreuse spots! I think this guy represents COLOR ME GREEN, just fine.

Don't forget ~ anyone can participate in SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY. The words  for this week's hunt are: FACIAL FEATURE, SHADOW, SPICY, GOLD, & FABRIC.


  1. Fun series, Christine. That is one crazy looking reptile! Looking at the "people" in that photo, I thought he must be huge, then I realized they are not real. I enjoyed this little peek into your life.

  2. Your color me green picture is so cool...very unique!

  3. Never too late. Terrific series of responses to the prompts.

  4. The sock monster lives at my house too!

  5. Love the GREEN shot. Cute dog pics too.
