September Disney Fan Photo-a-Day!

Hey guys!! I've got next month's list for the #disneyfanphotoaday! Who has been doing it with me? I love seeing everyone's photos! If you're not already following me on Instagram, my username is @designerbrittney. That's where I post my photos.

Now remember, while the list is Disney-inspired YOU CAN TOTALLY TAKE ANY TYPE OF PHOTOS WITH THESE PROMPTS. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO BE DISNEY RELATED!!!!!!!


Basically all you have to do is use the daily prompts to take a photo and share it anywhere you'd like - Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, your blog, etc. Wherever you like to share your photos and make sure to always tag your photos with #disneyfanphotoaday.

The point is to challenge yourself and have fun. So you missed a day (or a week or a month), who cares! Catch up if you want or just shoot today's word!

Think outside the box!!

Make your shots purrrrdy.

I put all my shots from last month in a little collage . . . I think its fun seeing them all together. (I'm also planning to make little 4x4 prints and decorate a wall with them. Stay tuned for that project!)


Last month's photos went just as I hoped, fun and rewarding. Looking back at my month's photos makes me smile from ear to ear. I love capturing everyday moments, and this gives it a little extra "magic".

Hope you'll play along!! And tell all your Disney Geek friends to play too while you're at it!

Scraplift Challenge "Quick-Fire" Style

Ok - who loves Top Chef? I do! I do! Even though it makes me really hungry and slightly depressed over my own lack luster cuisine, I gotta say, that show is great!

This morning we're going to a "Quickfire Challenge". Now - unlike the chefs, you have more than 30 minutes!! In fact, you have until midnight tomorrow to complete your dish layout.

The challenge is to Scraplift a layout from the Britt Girls Gallery!! Last I checked there were nearl 1,200 layouts in that gallery to choose from.

Rules:

- Scraplift a layout from the Britt Girls Gallery
- Post your layout in the Britt-ish Designs Gallery
- Be sure to credit the original layout where you took your inspiration
- Come back and post a link to your layout here in this thread.

I will draw one lucky winner AND my Britt Girls will all vote and pick 1 favorite layout. Both winners will win 1 free kit of their choice off their Britt-ish Designs wishlist.

I chose to lift Mary's (aka plumdumpling's) "Book Picnic" layout (and BTW I totally want to go on a Book Picnic):


Here is my lift:

Who will you lift? I can't wait to see those entries. Good luck on your Quickfire Challenge!

the daily digi

Hi guys!! Just wanted to let you know that I'm featured over on The Daily Digi today. You can see the kit that I contributed to The Digi Files. You can get it by joining The Digi Files this month. That way you get "Are We There Yet?" PLUS SIX MORE collections/kits all for just $7.50.


(Starting in September you can pick up this kit in my shop on its own.)

It cracked me up that Steph used "Don't Skimp" as the title to my feature page. She quoted me on my 'tip' but I have to say that "Don't Skimp" is probably a motto to not only my scrap asthetic, my design work, but also to my life!!! ha!! (having an aha moment here, Steph! thanks!!)

I know it seems like you've been reading a lot of "interviews" and "features" from me lately. But hopefully you'll enjoy reading this one. There's quite an extensive interview and you might learn something new about me that you didn't know before.

You can see how TDD's CT used "Are We There Yet?" on their team inspiration page.
