Friday Freebies--More Storyboards and Phototemplates

by Kristina

This week I stumbled upon an article from SheKnows  on the Best Photo Inspiration by and for Moms.  If you have not seen this article, you should definitely go check it out.  I am already a huge fan of Shutter Sisters &  Clickin Moms but the blog,  Project Alicia was one that I was not familiar with.   Anyway, I went and visited her site and have to say, I am now a new fan!

Her blog is beautifully designed and is full of inspiration and ideas for photographers and scrapbookers.  She provides tutorials, challenges, link-ups and freebies.   So much great stuff!

Speaking of freebies, I found this terrific photo layout on her site and there are many others.....just click here to see all of Alicia's wonderful layouts.

When I saw this layout below from her December collection,  I knew it would be perfect for my recent photo walk (minus the original title).

I was inspired to go out on a neighborhood photowalk after reading my friend Lissa from Laf Custom Designs blog.  The idea is to go and explore your neighborhood with your camera and share a little piece of where you live and the beauty it offers.

With this in mind, I headed out with my local friend who recently purchased a new SLR camera.  She is learning the features of her new baby and wanted a few "in the field" tips.  Since I love talking about anything that has to do with photos, I was happy go on a walk with her near the rail road tracks and talk ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed.

I love this little area of our neighborhood because it combines the ruggedness of the metal and rocks along the tracks with the beauty of flowers and greenery including palm trees and pine trees (yep, we live in California).

Be sure to check out Laf Custom Designs too and join her neighborhood link up!  Fun!

    1. That was actually the default color on the template. It worked out perfectly...brining out the colors of the rocks that I didn't change it.
