JJ Task 24: Juno's gifts

For the focus on Photography task, I chose to tackle one of my most daunting challenges: photographing a beautiful but camera shy Juno, who has grown to hate flash photography. I got down on her level, and played with the ambient light so I could use no flash. She let me take a couple of shots before leaving the set. I used PSE to adjust the lighting of the photo.

 

Journalling:

One day of Christmas celebration just wasn’t enough for Juno, so she extended the season of giving for weeks into the new year. She collected packages from wherever she could find them and dragged them upstairs to leave them under the tree. Zack said, "Mom, look! She's leaving us presents!"

Her offerings included a package of Pop-tart crisps, an unopened paint drop cloth, an aquarium filter, and a half-eaten bag of kitty treats.

What a crack up!!! Cool cat :-) Love that decorated tree, must have taken a while looking at all te embellishments you used!! Gorgeous cat and lovely photo taken down on her level... Love how you kept the main part of the page plain and added embellishments only to the side plus journalling :-)

Oh, Jaymee - so glad you did scrap Juno's story -- I love it! Your layout is wonderful and your decorated tree so pretty! Neat photo and you did a great job shooting it head-on. I really enjoyed and laughed at your journaling and all the burlap and twine you used is so warm and festive. Super page! :)

Your kitty is too funny! The only thing my cat ever left me was a mouse by my door. An offering? Ewww! This is a fun page from the journaling to the decorated tree. The burlap & twine look right at home here.

How funny! Love the burlap theme here - background, frame, border and ornaments. Nice title, too. Glad she cooperated for a few shots. I can only photograph ours when she is asleep.

Juno actually looks pretty relaxed and regal here. Great photo! I love the textures in your layout - burlap, twine, etc. I enjoyed your journaling, too. So funny! :lol: Juno sounds like she's quite a character!

I can vouch for the validity of the remarkable Juneau. She climbed up on my lap when I was eating a granola bar in a green wrapper, wanting to share. I told her no, it was people food. She left, and came back dragging kitty treats in similar wrapping. I was an understandable mistake, after all.

Too funny! Thanks for the story, Mom. Juno is quite a girl!
