Book Blog Photo Shoot

I've been toying with the idea of re-doing the layout lately, and I got an idea so I ran it by Cheryl. She has magic PSP fingers and completely rocks in the creative department. She liked the idea so today I had my niece, Bree, help me out with a little photo shoot. The big idea wasn't looking right in my room. I have no wall space opened and everything is crammed up there. That's basically how it is in my entire house. So my genius self gets the bright idea to take it out to the back deck (on the hottest day of the freakin' week mind you.)

Bree and I took a couple trips with book bags. All together, I think we had about two and half of my shelves out there. We did have a lot of fun (and almost died of a heat stroke) snapping random pictures. I was surprised about what ideas she came up with while she was the photographer then I used her as the guinea pig for a while. Here are some outtakes:

She will forever remember this as the day her aunt tried to kill her by standing on books.

I adore this one.

I will make a Sarah Dessen fan out of her yet!

"Okay, Annie, that's it. I'm done."

Here in the next week or so the blog might be missing a bunch of stuff, but make sure to check back to see the new layout!!

Taschima- Thanks! The last one cracks me up because she just threw herself down like I give up!

I haven't read Evolution yet. There are a few of them in that pile I still need to get to. I've been a major slacker this summer.

Oh my goodness, just looking at those piles of wonderful books makes my heart swell! Although I'd freak out if anyone were to stand on my books, hehe. Personally I like the standing/crawling one and the "I'm done!" one at the end! Can't wait to see how it turns out. :)
