Substitute Item (new this year):  If you find any of the above too hard, you may substitute a photograph of either a heart-shaped stone or a four leaf clover for one item; however, you may not substitute this item for #21.

USED FOR ITEM 20 (Tree swing or Hammock – not around here!!):


Not a heart-shaped stone but a stone heart – The Heart of Midlothian on The Royal Mile. Smile 

So, that’s it from me for the Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt 2012. I have to say I’ve seen places in Edinburgh I never been to before, so thank you very much, Rinda, for that experience. Was wondering if you are doing a Winter / Christmas one? If not, I am happy to run one. Open-mouthed smile

Photo Scavenger Hunt Summer 2012

Ok… I’ve been travelling wide and far (LOL) to get some photos, have done some “cheating” as well… might change those photos IF I find another opportunity before September 21st.

031 033
Two different borders around Edinburgh – one up at the Mount with view towards the castle, the other one at the Flower Clock with an Olympic message.

It’s quite interesting how FEW angel statues there are in the cemeteries I’ve been to in Edinburgh the last couple of weeks… this little beauty I finally found today after hubby suggested to try Dalry Cemetery – it was amidst thorn and trees … but I got it!! :D And hubby constantly texted me “DON’T BLINK!”  (Dr Who Reference).

020 021
“Fountain of Faces” (don’t even know if it’s called that) on the Royal Mile with one smiling and one sad mask.
My main object for this, however, was Ross Fountain in Princes’ Street Gardens … unfortunately no water in it anymore… :( 

At first I thought I have to use this little “cheat” (?) seen at “Clown Around” soft play.
but then I found this one …
That was just by good luck and the help of one of hubby’s ex colleagues. She commented on my FB plea about this Labyrinth at George Square Gardens behind the University of Edinburgh – stunning place, and I’ll walk it at some point, I’m sure.

A BRIDE (cheat)
Ok, after being always too late to take photos of brides or none around, I think I may have to resort to the cheat for this one ….
It’s a stamp I saw for sale at Stamper’s Grove.

Learn Something New Every Day 1

(LSNED from now on) – another Class from Shimelle. I’m on the alumni list for it, signed up for the first time last year but with the girls being just 1 and a bit months old, 2-3 hourly feeds etc I didn’t even print/read the prompts. So this year I want at least to BLOG if not SCRAP for this class…

A bit of a change from last year as far as I remember, but Shimelle said she’s going to keep it short, quick and sweet when it comes to the “scrapping” part of things. Suits me fine.

So for today we have the following:

My name is Kat and today is the first of September 2012. The last big adventure of my life would probably be my girls turning 1 (and their birth/them being in our lives). Every day with them is an adventure really, and I learn so much about them/me/us.
