Magazine Copycat: Taste of Home June/July 2010

Hello Friends!

Today I am joining Debbie over at Debbie Doos Blogging and Blabbing for her fun new link party, Magazine Copycat.  You can always count on Debbie to come up with fun and different parties.  

Here’s how it works.  Snap a shot of a magazine layout or cover, duplicate it and snap a picture of your version.  Share both photos in your post and link up.  This party is great for honing those photo composition skills.  

Speaking of photo composition skills, don’t forget to go HERE to enter my One Year Blogiversary Giveaway.  The package includes a copy of Photography: The Art of Composition by Bert Krages.

July is National Ice Cream Month.  Woo-hoo!  That’s why we love July….that and the warm sunny days…cook-outs…swimming…gardening…fireworks…festivals… vacations…trips to the beach…  Come to think of it, there isn’t much to NOT like about July. 
I chose to emulate this Taste of Home cover from 
June and July 2010.
Photographing ice cream is not easy.
Don’t forget to join me on National Ice Cream Day, July 17, for an Ice Cream Social link party.  Link posts with recipes, memories, photos, or poetry associated with this frozen treat.  You can also link any frozen dessert, gelato, sorbet, sherbet, popsicle or yogurt recipe.   There just may be a special treat for those who join in the fun. 
Hope to see you there!

This was such a fun party.  I hope you will visit Debbie’s blog to see other submissions for this challenge.
