Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had an incredible Christmas (or weekend if you don’t celebrate Christmas). It’s snowing in North Carolina so we’ve been blessed with a “White Christmas.” Of course, it’d be wonderful if we were done with our holiday travel, but we’ve got to get back out on the road tomorrow morning. So…could you make it melt for us? Please? Anyways, it’s the last Scavenger Hunt Sunday of 2010 and I’m really excited to share my interpretations this week. If you’ve been participating in the Scavenger Hunt each week, I hope this week’s items inspired you too. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME! 

Next Sunday, I will post the linky for Memories, Dreams and Reflections. I hope you will be inspired to take a walk down memory lane with us and share your favorites moments from 2010. I’ve provided 25 prompts – feel free to write as much or as little about each photo. Speaking of which, I really need to pull my photos together!
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. 
  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 Saturday at the latest – you have a full week) – you can use the button above. 
  5. Have fun!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Family
Red Caboose Lady RS
I gave my mom a Paper Lady Crown this year for Christmas. She was so tickled with it, that she put it on immediately!

2. Motion Blur
Motion Blur RS
The other night, Kitty Paw started flipping out. I sat on one side of the couch watching as she tried to catch her tail.

3. Pretty Package

My mom always wraps the prettiest packages. I took this photo just moments before we started opening presents. As I did during Thanksgiving, I put my camera away and enjoyed the moment. Ya know, sometimes it’s more important to be “present” than to photograph the opening of presents…at least when you’re trying to open presents. 

4. Glow
Flick Glow RS
I know that many of you have an “elf on the shelf.” We just have Mr. Flick but he changes locations daily. On this particular day, he was enjoying the glow of the Christmas tree lights while sitting on presents.

5. Sparkle
IMG_0364 RS
If I’m completely honest, I intended to use the photo I posted on Friday as my “sparkle” photo…until I made a snap decision to use it for Macro Friday. However, what is Christmas without the ever-popular ornament self-portrait shot. I think it still counts as sparkle. 

What were your interpretations of the items this week? I can’t wait to check them out. Be sure to load your pictures in 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 Saturday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next time, I will post a new Scavenger Hunt list on January 2nd. Until then, I hope you’ll join us next week for Memories, Dreams and Reflections
