August Moments that Matter ~ Join Us! {photo journal prompts}


My goal this summer is to make sure that I capture the moments that matter with my family.  Since summer is crazy busy for me, I’ve picked a word each day that I want to capture with my camera phone to help me photo journal these fleeting memories.

It’s been so simple and fun that I thought you might want to play along too.  {wink}   If so, here are the emotions and bonding memories to look out for each day and when it happens, simply grab your camera phone and snap a quick photo.

Therefore, you’ll also need to go online and sign up for FollowGram {yep, free}, then link up your FollowGram URL so we can follow you. I just adore making new friends.

    That instagram idea is so cool! I like how each day has a focus! Simple pleasures and community building. Good way to teach enhance children’s vocabulary too. Love it!:0)

    absolutely LOVE this idea & list. Days are so busy w/ little ones it’s easy to get sidetracked & never have time for photographing the “little” things. Having a preplanned list w/ a daily focus helps not only get some great pics to remember special moments but helps draw our attention to these items. I am also thrilled to have a plan for a scrap page – rather than tons of misc pictures & attempting to try to create a theme! Now…if only i could find help w/ photo editing to be able to fit one month of these pics onto one scrap page….hmmmm. thanks!
