30 day Photo Challenge

Today I have a few more photos to share, plus I will show you what I've been doing with all these photos!  Jim and I visited Gaspereau Winery (of course we had to sample and buy a couple of bottles for our wine rack!) 
Up Close - Grapes at Gaspereau Vineyards
Cape Blomidon (near Wolfville) is a beautiful spot.  
From a Distance - Cape Blomidon
My mother and I attended a Dahlia show - who knew there were so many varieties!!! They sold bunches of these beautiful blossoms after the show and I got the last bunch!
Flowers - Dahlia Show entries

When I started this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do to "scrapbook" my photos.  A few years ago, I had read an article about using everyday items in scrapbooks.  One of the items featured was these:

So I've been "collecting" them ever since....I snagged a few when I was at the CTMH convention in Washington last year, a few from coffee shops in Fargo, ND, some in Winnipeg, MB, and a couple here in Nova Scotia.  Needless to say, I had quite a little stack building up, so I decided to make a mini-album with them.  First, I cut them all in to two pieces, then I sanded all the edges with my Distress-It-All (I just had to have one thanks to Tracy & Louise!) and then I misted every one with all my favourite colours!
Lots of fun, and these are the perfect size for each daily photo.  I still have some work to do, but you get the general idea!


Off to take a picture of "my shoes"!!  Thanks to everyone who have left comments - it's so nice to get feedback and kind words! Thank you!
