    Happy December!!!

    Being that it is the end of the year, I tend to become nostalgic and reminisce over the "good old days". But in doing so, I miss out on the goodness that is right now. And really there is a lot of goodness if I stop and look around. Not all of it is that exciting - this is real life afterall - but that is were the real treasures of today are.

    When I look at my life right now, I see so many little moments that I just treasure. These seemingly insignificant moments tell so many stories of how my life is today. When captured on film and in print, they are a time capsule for future years - the clothing, the decorating, the activities that occupy our time, the little messes - all of it represent this stage in our life and are so meaningful.

    So your photography challenge this month is to capture an everyday moment. That candid moment that shows your life, right now. No posing, no prepping, just pick up the camera and take the photo. :)

    Since this is a photography challenge, your photograph needs to be taken this month, by you. Enjoy capturing those everyday moments!

    Here is my photo and layout for this challenge:

    I hope you enjoy using your camera to capture the everyday moments in your life this month!

    Remember: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the December Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    I think I might challenge myself and use a timer to get a pic of myself Ali Edward style when I´m not aware of being photographed!

    My husband's clothes rarely get dirty so having ring around the collar is rare for him!

    Here's a quick photo I took on Friday to celebrate being 30 weeks pregnant (with the significance being that my twins were born at 30 weeks two years ago, but this baby is still happily baking away!)

    It may appear these photos were planned, but my Au-some grandson does NOT let me take photos of him let alone 4....he was so happy playing with the dog's blanket and bed...I LOVE this boy!
