Take Twelve: June 2012

The theme for this month's dozen photos is A Neighborhood Walk. The Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit suggests compiling a visual field guide of familiar sights, so we took a camera on one of our summer evening bike rides.




How I wish I had a layout like this for all the places we've lived during our 31-years-on-Wednesday marriage! (like how I snuck that in?) Places do change over time and scenes that we take for granted now will one day become precious memories. Almost all of my supplies for this page came from American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook line. I'm having so much fun with this collection!


You can view more Take Twelve layouts under the Take Twelve in 2012 tab located below my blog header. Have you captured the everyday scenes in your neighborhood or community? Summer is the perfect opportunity to make a page like this!

  2. What a lovely page & great shots of everyday scenes on your bike rides! I haven't done my 12 photos for this month, yet, but we have a quick trip planned for next weekend that I think will provide a good chance to snap them.

  5. Great shots of your neighbour hood but most of all I am so impressed that you can still ride a bike!!!

    I so want to try again up at the lake. Many of the campers have bikes and bike around to the various friends lots etc. Dh is leery of me on a bike as I have some mobility and balance issues...I think I need to check out the 3 wheelers! LOL

  11. That's a wonderful page. I have been photographing buildings from the side of the road lately. So many I remember from my childhood are now falling into ruin and I want pictures before they disappear altogether
