You Capture: Shapes

The theme for this week over at I Should Be Folding Laundry is shapes. Well, each and every day this week, I thought about snapping a few pictures of some shapes around the house. And each and every day this week, I did not. We've been battling a nasty virus in our house for the last week and a half. And to be quite honest, I just did not have the energy. So I will just consider this a bit of a rewind post. ;)

These are a few shots from a summer or two ago. Nothing is better than a boy and his dog. :) And bubbles just added to the fun! 

Tucker loves to chase the bubbles whenever the kids pull them out. It's funny to me that he never gets discouraged when the bubbles disappear each and every time he "catches" them.

You capture: Kisses

This week over at I Should Be Folding Laundry, the theme for You Capture is Kisses. Our dog, Tucker, has a bit of OCD. He suffers from OLD (aka obsessive licking disorder) and it drives me batty. I'm not a fan of the slobber. But for this challenge, I told him to go give my daughter some kisses and he obliged. He's a good like that.

Again, I used some PS Actions. The two used today were from The Pioneer Woman. I like her actions. I especially like the start over action, makes it so much easier to, well, start over! The action in the first photo is Old West. It's my favorite one. And the second action is vintage. Another favorite. Both are tweaked to my liking.

You Capture: Work

This weeks theme is WORK. When I read the challenge theme last week, I was stumped. I've been a stay at home mom since my daughter was born, so more than 12 years. So really- my work is around our house, which can be kind of boring. But this week has been spent tending to sick children. For the last two days, my youngest was home sick. Today, my oldest is home. She just does not feel well, as evidence by the photos. LOL. She got dressed thinking she could try to go to school, but that didn't pan out. Apparently there are quite a few kids out at the kids school this week. Fun stuff!! So this week, my photos are of my work taking care of the sickies in the house.

I also used actions I hadn't used before and kind of like how they turned out.

You Capture: Faces

The theme for this weeks You Capture is faces. Well, I procrastinated and procrastinated and only Tuck was here this morning for this theme. And even he was not happy to be told to sit and stay. Also, I added an older picture from around Christmas time of my brother's little dog Lulu. :) Be sure to head over to I Should Be Folding Laundry and see the other participants in the challenge.
