52 WEEKS OF MEMORIES | 1 - SUMMER

To say I'm excited to start the 2015 series off is a complete understatement. I've been living and breathing this challenge for a few weeks now trying to come up with the new prompts and then creating the new artwork. Needless to say I was super excited when my prompt reveal on Facebook went viral, but now there's just a tad bit of pressure on me to come up with good photos!

This week we're kicking off with the prompt summer, considering its been hot as all hell here lately I figured it was an appropriate prompt to begin with. For us this summer has involved a very temperamental air conditioner that doesn't want to work on the hot days, a toddler regularly running around in just a nappy, numerous trips to the beach and lots of water play. This child of mine is definitely a little water baby, the water table and inflatable pool have been getting a real workout lately and I don't see that changing any time soon. Especially when it leads to her having as much fun as this...

    1. You don't need to have little kids Min! You can make the prompts about anything. I just do most of them about her because I want to make them into a book at the end of the year :)

    1. Yep thats the idea, I always suck at the photo a day challenges. I'm all enthusiastic for the first few days then lose interest.
