This first time at home sparring with gear which quickly turned into an attack on Daddy was too funny and because of the short amount of time in which this particular event happened one night, meant I had to grab my point & shoot (which happened to be sitting on the sofa table right there - so I didn't even have to move) and do the best I could in about 30 seconds. The photos are far from perfect but tell a story that my family has told at least 100 times since it happened last month. The Story? My daughter took a few years off from karate but she's back and was eagerly awaiting her gear - which meant she could start sparring. The Title? "She has Gear. Dudes: Watch Out."
Can my Canon PowerShot take better photos? Of Course. Should these less than perfect photos stop me from scrapbooking this loved and funny story? Of Course Not! My Advice - do something fun with the colors on the layout: Here I used the yellowish photo with a yellowish and muted background paper and then added a pop of aqua blue and red to make something pop on the page.
My other advice? If you'd like to support this blog and need an extra Canon Power Shot? Check out the following affiliate links. I seriously think that you can never have too many Canon power shots - leave them in your purse, around your house and give them to your kids - they are easy to use, take better photos that shown here, and are relatively inexpensive depending on what you need . I have an iphone 4 and I know that iphone photos are all the rage, but really, for me, I love my Canon power shots and I happily take one whereever I go in addition to my iphone because I think uploading and printing from my canon is a bazillion times easier than all of the iphone app craziness - and yes I know there are apps for that - but really? The little memory card in my Canon is so much easier for me to use. Plus they come in cute colors which you can use a sharpie to write your name (or your kid's name on) and when you use the Canon point and shoot instead of your iphone - then your iphone batteries last longer which I think is sort of a big deal since my iphone is my gateway to hours of surfing Pinterest while doing other things.
