So, let me start off by saying that tonight I feel sad. My camera is officially broken. It still turns on and off, but sometimes you can’t zoom in or out, which can cause blurry photos. You can’t look at photos you have taken on the display screen, and all the setting buttons do not work. Since the settings don’t work, I won’t be able to utilize photo techniques to enhance the pictures. Sigh. Seriously, this is such a huge loss for a scrapper.
No worries though, I do plan on getting a new camera soon, but for now, I will use my older camera. It still takes decent photos, but I will definitely be missing my everyday camera.
Also, today I wanted to show off some amazing layouts and projects created by my amazing group of girls on the ROL design team. Instead of posting them on this section of my blog, I will be posting their work in the ROL Shop page, which is located on the top of the page as a tab. That way, it won’t get confusing trying to manage both my personal blog and the ROL Shop page. Hope this works for everyone. Please make sure to check it out, and let us know what you think.
For this layout, I “scraplifted” the talented and artistic Deana, yet again. I loved her design so much that I wanted to use it for the second time. This is my latest:
Before the camera broke, I was fortunate enough to take tons of pictures of my daily adventures today. I want to share the last photos from the now broken camera, so bare with me because there’s a ton of photos to look at.
For lunch, we drove out to Jack London Square in Oakland to have a picnic with my friend, Jennie. She was so sweet and brought us some awesome BBQ! While eating, we had a blast soaking up the sun.
After eating lunch and briefly roaming around Jack London Square, we decided to head towards Emeryville to go shopping at Bay Street. While shopping, we ended up taking a detour for dessert at Ikea for their infamous frozen yogurt and scrumptcious cupcakes at Tea Cake Bake Shop. Holy crud, they are amazing! Soooooo delicious. Unfortunately though, I don’t think I’ve had a cupcake yet that is equivalent to the Magnolia Bakery cupcakes of New York City.
After shopping around, I had a ton of fun over at Urban Ore. This place is totally amazing. It’s basically a salvage yard where people drop off their “junk”! Then, people can come and look around trying to find some “treasure”. I love this place because you can find tons of vintage items. Plus, this place promotes recycling and tries to cut back on waste production. I had a lot of fun taking pictures at this place, and I must say these are the last photos I will be taking with the camera.
…after a long day of going here and there, Maui was ready to get home.
