Challenge: Blurry Photos

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Everyone takes blurry photographs. It happens! I know I have tons of blurry or imperfect photos just sitting, waiting to be chosen for pages or albums. I've never tried to scrap these imperfect photos because I don't want to highlight that I didn't get "the perfect shot." Well, recently, one of Erika's Issue Challenges over at Club CK was to do just that: Use a blurry photo for your LO or project.

Immediately, I thought of: how can I "sneak" a blurry photo into my LO without having it really be noticed as a blurry photo? But when flipping through photos I saw this photo of my Mom, Sister, and I, I knew I had to use this one. This photo was taken with my Blackberry in a movie theatre bathroom. It was July 4th weekend and we went out for a belated hangout for Mom's birthday to see Bridemaids. We had so much fun that day just hanging out and seeing where the day took us.

It was a day that just had to be scrapped! Everytime I see that photo it makes me smile.

My Mom loooooves the color purple, so using this color was a must! Instead of "sneaking" the blurry photo in, I highlighted it to it's fullest potential. I'm very happy with how it came out, and realized that there was really no need for it to be sitting in a box for months. I can't wait to use more blurry photos in more layouts.

Next time, challenge yourself to use some of those blurry shots! Yourself from the future will appreciate that you used it.
