Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Welcome back to Scavenger Hunt Sunday…2012 edition. It feels like forever since we’ve done a Scavenger Hunt – even if it’s only been a couple of weeks. In fact, I had a hard time getting back into my usual groove. I actually waited until last night (a few hours ago) to even shoot my photos. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I’m still editing portrait sessions from December. I’ve got two more sessions to complete so hopefully my creative photography spirit will return quickly. However, I was excited to see that so many of you have already entered Memories, Dreams and Reflections…163 of you to be exact. If you haven’t entered already, you have until January 15th – click HERE for more details.

With that said, if you’ve participated in the Scavenger Hunt in the past, I hope this week’s items inspired you. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME! Next week’s items are sponsored by Honey Mommy and Sacha.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (we have so many new participants each week, this is the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun!
  Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. One Color
Pink Crayon RS
I decided to go with one of my favorite colors…pink.

2. Laundry
Laundry RS
I didn’t actually do any laundry this week (my husband beat me to it), but you get the idea.

3. Empty
Empty Box RS
An empty box of raisins…yes, I like raisins.

4. One Dozen
Eggs RS
Pretend you see a dozen eggs – we were down to five by the time I took this photo. Oops.

5. Soft
Evening Bath RS
Kitty Paw’s coat is nice and soft…it’s bound to be considering how much she licks herself.

What were your interpretations of the items this week? I can’t wait to check them out. Be sure to load your pictures on your blog (or your Flickr photostream) and link up at the bottom of this post. Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, here are your items (these can also be found at the bottom of my blog each week):
  1. Stacked Up (Honey Mommy‘s suggestion)
  2. Winter Wonderland (Honey Mommy‘s suggestion)
  3. Sweet (Honey Mommy and Sacha’s suggestion)
  4. Hole (Sacha’s suggestion)
  5. Frozen (Sacha’s suggestion)
Again, thank you to Honey Mommy and Sacha for so many great scavenger hunt items. If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list, add those items to what is currently on tap and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Happy Shooting!

PS:  Love Letters to Kitty Paw is coming soon. I am looking for a few sponsors to donate prizes. If you’re interested in being featured, please let me know!

    It did seem hard to get back into the groove this week. Love your soft Kitty Paw, so cute!

    Thanks as always for scavenger hunt- i really enjoy joining in. Kitty Paw is very cute.

    I actually really like your laundry shot. I did so much laundry this week that I could not get myself to take a fresh shot, so I used an archival one.

    I also love the crayon. So simple and colorful!

    Don’t you love it when your husband beats you to the laundry! :)

    We thought alike this week!

    Great shots as always. We have the same washer as you but I took a photo of my mom’s. :) And our egg shots are similar, we only had 6. Ha ha.

    Beautiful photos! I really love the simplicity of the crayon shot!

    Ahhh, Kitty Paw is so sweet – love that you caught her mid-lick!

    Love that pink shot, so crisp! Thank you for making me pick up my camera this week! & As always thank you for the hunt!

    And my favorite color – pink! Love that first shot, and strangely that is exactly what I was going to do. But this morning when we were out I got one that worked and called it done! It’s nice to be back to scavenger hunting….

    Dang, I could have sent you some eggs girl. Pretty brown ones too. I always forget how plain looking the white ones are – but I do like the white shades repeating throughout that image.

    Feeling inspired by the list for next week. I’m so in.

    You capture such great shots of Kitty Paw! I LOVE your new header too! Have a blessed week!

    Your one color shot is to funny.. I would have never thought of that. So smart girly… I only had 2 eggs left. Had to run out and buy a dozen. I am sure they won’t last long..

    Thanks for hosting Ashley..

    Hugs, Linda

    Love your color shot. Well I like them all.
    I misread and looked for half dozen everywhere. Wish I knew it was OK to cheat a bit ;) before I spend an hour counting items in my photos…

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year Ashley! Love your pink shot, so creative! Yay for your husband doing the washing! Love Empty, such a cool idea and love the focus. I only had a little over half a dozen eggs too and love kitty paw by the tree!

    so sweet! I was going to shot my cat too for soft but than I choose differently. Kitty Paw is a Lady ;)

    I have to do laundry every day! :D Well..we have 2 kids..

    Great photos. My new years resolution is to take part in more photography challenges. The main one being a p52 and the second one is more challenges in general especially scavanger hunt.

    I went for a similar colour to you for my one colour photo. I wish I could get my husband to do laundry!

    Hi! :) So glad to be linking up with you again! :)

    You’re a lucky woman to have a husband who beats you to laundry. Love the Kitty Paw shot, of course :)

    Great shots…love your One Color!

    It is great to be linking up again, you have another great collection. I love the reason and the fact that you have no laundry – how wonderful is he!

    These are all wonderful — but I love the washer shot. I wish mine looked that clean on the outside. :)

    LOVE that crayon! And great minds think alike with the eggs!

    Kitty Paw back to top billing I see.
    Glad to notice I’m not the only one with a top loader. Cheap is good I say. I love your first image. I forget about that negative space…your shots that use it I like-and then forget to do myself.
    Have a great week Ashley.
    PS…I was going to do a 5 eggs dozen as well-great minds.

    I love the crayon shot… amazing how something so simple can be so wonderful! Have a great week! =)

    These are all great! Love the crayon! And I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who sometimes waits until Saturday to take her photos. :)

    Kitty Paw definitely wins for soft! I also love your one color. Have a super Sunday. xxx

    Love the Kitty Paw shot, and really love the empty shot – very fun!!

    Ahh it is good to be back in the swing of SHS…love this challenge, one of my favs. Love your line-up this week. Cute, cute kitty!!

    I had to fudge on the dozen too. Creative interpretation, right?!

    As always – perfection. I think we had a lot of the same ideas this week :) hehehe. SO happy to be back on schedule with Scavenger Hunt & can’t wait to see some pics from your sessions.

    Brilliant interpretations, all of ‘em :) Even the 5 eggs ;) I thought ‘a dozen’ as soon as I saw the eggs.

    Great job…and, thank you so much for continuing to host the hunt. I’ll try to do better in the year to come than I did today! LOL! Looking forward to all of the coming inspiration <3

    Happy 2012!!!

    Oh, my gosh! That new header photo is just priceless!! It makes me smile. :)

    I love Princess Kitty Paw! thanks for hosting Scavenger Hunt each week Ashley, I really enjoy joining in. happy week to you.

    I am glad we are back. I love this challenge.
    Great interpretations this week, I love one color…simplicity.
    Happy New Year

    I’m so glad Scavenger Hunt is back :)
    Love your one color shot and the perspective of empty.

    Your picture for “One Color” is so literal and so perfect in its simplicity! I love your “empty” shot too.

    Great set! My favorites are the eggs and the laundry shot.

    Great set Ashley! I have been motivate to start blogging again so of course your meme was at the top of my list to get me moving again.

    Love your set, especially your kitty pictures. She looks just like our old cat Summer, so here pictures always make me smile.

    Yes a cat is so soft and I would have had a cat pic too here is my cat would have been alive :( But your cat looks cute ! And dozen is a classic and laundry too.

    Have a nice week !!!!

    So happy Scavenger hunt is back.Thank You! Great Pictures. I love that One Color picture that is amazing. I love them all!

    It does feel like we took off more than a couple weeks! I’m still getting back in the routine, too, and my photos are going to look a lot like yours. Great pictures as always! I’ll link up tomorrow.

    I love your one color shot! The simplicity is great.

    That one color shot is the bomb Ashley. And I do like your one dozen….hey….you gotta do what you gotta do to play! Have a good week and it’s great to be back playing.

    I took all of my photos on Saturday, too! I carried the list around with me all week, but didn’t get inspired until Saturday at about 4 pm, haha. I am going to trying to do SHS when I can this year. I miss the photo hunt challenges, so this is fun for me! :)

    I love all of your photos as usual. The pink crayon was my favorite.

    Happy Sunday!

    Fun shots. Love the bright pink crayone and of course Kitty Paw!

    I would be in heaven to have a week w/out laundry! I guess it could be possible with no kiddos. Lol)

    LOVE the single pink crayon, & the so soft Miss Kitty!

    This was a hard one but good for me to get back into it!!! I love how your pink crayon is floating in air!! And awww Kitty Pawwwwwww!

    Hey Ashley- I’ve followed for a looooong time, but I’m SO excited to have entered my very first SHS! I plan to be a regular and can’t wait to see how my photography hopefully grows with your challenges! (Also, I tried several times, but couldn’t get your button to work on my post, but I still put a link at the bottom. Just wondering if anyone else was having problems. :/) xoxo Brooke :)

    I really like your Empty shot!

    So how often do you do the laundry? I think we have the washing machine on every day, or more. I really need to get a life.

    Woof Ashley!
    Me and Kitty Paw have soft furs. Woohoo!

    So happy the hunt is back ;)

    Great shots this week. Your one color is amazing!

    I was so out of the groove, I didn’t even get mine posted until today! Although, I do blame the internet for that one, I tried and tried last night, but nothing was working!

    Great set this week :) I love your one color shot – pink is my favorite!

    Kitty Paw is adorable especially in her tiara and jewels!
    fun photos!

    Great shots, I still have one more to take so I can post for tomorrow. I almost grabbed a crayon for color, but found something else. Great minds think alike ; )

    I love your pink photo, but Sammy’s fave is the last shot of KP–he saw it and yelled “KITTY!” When I told him her name is Kitty Paw, he kept saying “Paw” over and over again. I think she has a new fan!

    My post will show tomorrow morning (Wednesday the 10th)

    No one does those white backgrounds quite like you, friend! LOVE the crayon! The raisin shot is another fave. Love the background. :-)

    love love LOVE your “dozen” shot!!
