I did finish the rest of the World ttv Dazes last week. I just got busy and didn't get a chance to post those photos. But you can see them in my flickr photostream. Here's the link to that, my flickr

I did participate in Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk this past Saturday.
Here's a few of my favorites from the day. And yes, I took most of my shots ttv.

More shots are at flickr.

World TTV Daze - Day 4 photos

I'm off to the CK Convention in Charlotte in the morning. And I'm not taking my laptop. But I am taking my SLR and Duaflex II. So I'll post my photos for Friday and Saturday sometime this week. I'm really glad I'm only taking 3 classes. I can spend a lot of my time taking photos of Charlotte.

So here are my images from today.

World TTV Daze 2008

Today was the first day of the 2008 World TTV Daze.
I'm happy to report that I got my contraption built this afternoon. Then, I went outside to take a bunch of photos in the yard.

Here are the 7 that I added to the Flickr group. And if you have time, check out the flickr group.

All were edited in Photoshop Elements. I used actions from
I love that EZ Actions are really easy. Just a few clicks and simple adjustments and I have wonderfully edited photos.

I think tomorrow, I'm going to go take photos around town. I've been meaning to stop by a local building and take a few photos. The building has a vintage Pepsi advertisement painted on it's side. I think it would be a fun place to get a few shots.

Holiday Mini Album Christmas Tree Ornament

Wow, that's a mouth full.

I love watching scrapbook and craft videos. I have a bunch of blogs bookmarked that show techniques and projects. One of my favorite blogs is Leah Fung's. Click her name to get to her blog.

Back at the end of June, she, Johanna Peterson, and Donna Salazar, did a video and it had a contest in it. All you had to do was go to Epson's Creative Zone and download a project and complete it. Epson's Creative Zone has a bunch of fun projects you can do using Epson printers and photos. There is a wide range of projects. And here's a direct link to the post about the contest. The deadline was extended until Aug 7. That's this Thursday. So you still have time to enter. And you can win a Epson Picturemate Zoom. It's the one that has a built-in CD reader/burner.

The project I chose was supposed to be a 4x6 mini album. But I resized the pages to be a small. They are only 4 x 2.66". That is the perfect size to hang on my Christmas tree. I think I may do one every year to add to my tree. That way, I can remember some of the little traditions we have. This mini is about our annual trip to a local children's home that really puts on a great Christmas show. There is a living Nativity play, carols, lights, horse drawn carriages to see all the lights, and hot chocolate.

So here's some photos of the completed project.
The Cover:
And the some inside pages:

And here is a direct link to the project I chose.
Project #275 (the pages are already done, you just have to add your photos and print)
Other Supplies:
Making Memories Wordfetti; ribbon; Photoshop Elements; Font: CK Ali's Hand

I hope will join me in doing a project and linking it to their blog. Last I heard, the chances were pretty good. But I know there has to be a lot of people like me...waiting until the last minute.
