Simple Things Sunday...and an Ella Winner!!

Rebecca Cooper has a fun photo project on her blog called The Simple Things. To play along, all you have to do is take a photo each week of something simple that makes you happy or a little thing that makes you smile. Simple enough, right?
Here's my simple thing for this week:
3 ducks and a rooster. I took this photo at a local petting zoo and fell in love with it. I love the pattern of the ducks, the flash of red from the rooster. (I promise, it's not posed :) I hesitate to call this a 'challenge' because it's really more like a gentle reminder to notice the simple, good things. (Don't you think the photos from this project could make for a great ongoing album project?)

Ok, now onto the winner of Ella Publishing's Journaling That Matters...

and the free copy of this awesome eBook goes to....
Amanda - you are commenter #9! Congratulations...email me and I'll help you download your copy!
Thanks everyone for playing along - hope you have a lovely day!

Yay! Thanks, Val!

Love that picture - I just finished downloading some duck pictures and was thinking they were too boring to scrap. You changed my mind :)

Valerie said...

oh that's a fun idea. Your photo is indeed cool. Just checking in to see what you are up to - I knew I would find lots of good stuff and I did. You did an excellent job without PP. And I LOVE that doily-esque card.

Great photo. And yes, definitely a great idea for an ongoing project. Maybe a 2011 photo project!?
