Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I know I was a bit of a slacker and didn't get around to participating in Scavenger Hunt Sunday but today I am and I'm excited. While Stella was getting groomed (more about that later), I had some peace and quiet in the house on Saturday morning and decided to step up to the challenge and start snapping away. It was a lot of fun and at first I thought the list was challenging but it turned out to be really fun and inspiring. I'm looking forward to participating in many more in the future but here's this week's.

  1. Chocolate - I honestly don't like chocolate and the only thing I could find in the house was white chocolate morsels. I put them on the counter and started snapping away and I loved the reflection I was getting on the counter.


2.   Numbers - this was a toss up for me between my number stamps and a road sign but this one won out. Stamping is another hobby of mine and these came to mind right away when I started looking around my scraproom.
 3.    Canned Food - not only a great challenge but also enabled me to clean out our pantry. Isn't multi-tasking the best? Turns out these cans were all past their "best used by" date. Off with the labels because I loved the shine and the lines the cans had on them. When the hubby saw the labels removed he got a bit worried but I told him they were getting tossed anyways.
 4.   Music - On Saturday I went with my husband and his family into the city to see "Million Dollar Quartet" which was a musical and a chance for me to snap some pictures in the lobby. I got in trouble trying to take pictures of the stage from my seat of the instruments before the show started- arrghhh!! It wasn't anything special but they threatened to erase my pictures which wasn't going to happen but I'm doing the right thing and not posting those pictures. Instead I wanted to showcase this artist's painting. Isn't it fun?
 5.   Stack - I have stacks of laundry, books, and magazines around the house but I wanted to go for something a bit more colorful plus who wants to see my underwear anyways. After exploring my scraproom again, I came across my beloved markers and started shooting my "stack of markers". OK it's a bit of stretch but I like how it turned out.

Thanks Ashley for hosting another great photo challenge, I'm loving it!
