A Photo Challenge . . . a 30 thing list . . . FOCUS is here!

I'm so excited about this new month long photography challenge that Heather Hess and I have cooked up for PolkaDotPlum . . .

This has multiple components, a weekly lesson, tutorials, a list of fun things to shoot, a chance to win Focus: The Kit FREE and like minded scrappers! Here's a sneak peek at the April list:

So go here to learn more . . . the first person to complete HALF of this list will get the kit Focus FREE and then the person to complete the ENTIRE list will also get it FREE! Hurry up!

And to make it even better . . . Heather, Cara of Sweet Tomato Designs and I have collaborated on a themed kit called what else, but Focus! This is HUGE with over 35 papers, 66 elements and two alphabets . . . I KNOW!

My very own kit!

JustJaimee is an amazing designer who is Canadian, but currently lives in Germany . . . how cool is that?!! She designed a kit . . . based on my color choice and theme and named it . . . Just for Lori. How special do I feel right now?!!

Isn't it beautiful . . . I love the stamped alpha, the neutral color palette and the clever, clever elements!

Here are two layouts I created with it using photos of Jamie that we captured on Easter.

A photo shoot . . .

So yesterday I had the chance to shoot Josie again . . . you will recognize her from a lot of my layouts . . . this is the CUTEST girl on the planet . . . SERIOUSLY!! She is so much fun to photograph because she is so animated and loves the camera . . .

I have a LOT of photos to process, but I wanted to give a sneak peek for her mom!
