Love Your Photos, Love Your Pages. Day 1

I've just started the new online class wth Shimelle Laine, 'Love Your Photos, Love Your Layouts'.  It is a 4-week class aimed at improving our photography with scrapbookng in mind.
Shimelle always has loads of ideas to keep you busy and we have had 3 challenges already.
The first was to post a photo which makes us smile. I've posted this one before of my children with their faces painted, but I love it and I want to do it justice on a scrapbook page,
We were also told to go out a take a picture of something in the next 5 minutes. I'm usually online as I wait for R to come home from school, so that is what I snapped.
Today's task was to photograph an object which meant something to us, but in different places in the house. I chose a pile of books by my current favourite authors, because I really don't think I could live without novels in my life. I was interested to discover that the light is dreadful in the dining room, which is where I always photograph my scrapbook pages, so I apologise to everyone who has been looking at my blogged  layouts - next time I will walk 2 feet and get a better picture in the kitchen or the hallway!

Another fab part of LYPLYLOs is the chance to upload a photo you don't love and ask everyone's advice on how to improve it. Look at what these clever people did with this rubbish picture of my last birthday

I think I'm going to enjoy this class.

I'm really enjoying it too :-) It's as much fun to see everyone else's work as it is to produce my own!
