End of Month BoBunny Hop!!

Welcome!  If you are playing along in the BoBunny blog hop you not only get to learn who our talented guest designer is for May, but you  will have a chance to win the Mama Razzi line if you stop at all the hops! Now, if you did not start at the BoBunny blog...you may want to hop back a bit. Good luck!
I am sharing a super simple project today, but one I envisioned the first time I laid eyes on the Mama-Razzi line. Every month I attend a photography group meeting at our church - basically a group of people passionate about photography. Skill levels range from beginner to professional...and thankfully, the professionals are willing to teach the rest of us how to take better photos and challenge our skills. It's a great group, fun, and a super way to get to know others with the same interest in a large church.
Each meeting begins with friendly critique of the previous month's photo challenge, then we learn something new, and then we head outdoors, or indoors as the case may be, to execute what we just learned. Fortunately there are both Nikon and Cannon pros...and yes, we do rather segregate ourselves - but it is a great way to learn about your specific camera brand/model. I have learned so much by participating in this group, and of course I take plenty of notes. The Mama-Razzi collection allowed me to spruce up my otherwise plain notebook. Now there is no doubt as to whom this notebook belongs to...and it's 6x9 size allows it to fit right inside my camera bag. Sweet!
Next, hop on over to the fabulously talented Patti Milazzo to see what she has been creating.  Visit all the blogs in the hop and leave a comment at our mystery guest's blog for a chance to win! Happy NSD! Thanks for coming by and doing the Bunny Hop!

Happy creating,
Rita S.

Just got inspired! I always keep a little notebook with my camera to take notes about place, time, event etc of the photos. Now, I need to decorate it. Hope to win the Mama papers to get started. If not I am off to my LSS to buy it. Either way I WIN!

Great use of the mamma razzi colection. I've made a 6x12 album which I hope to put pictures of my son in. He takes pictures and makes video's professionally so this collection is just magnificent for that!

Lovin the notebook! Wish we had a group here to be able to learn more about photography - I am a hearing, hands on learner and just reading books doesn't do it for me. Maybe I'll just see if I can get one put together - thanks for the idea!

PamS said...

Love your notebook. I wish there had been a group like yours, to meet with and learn about my camera when I got it. I finally took a course from a college but up until then the camera was very frustrating.
