Bass Lake collage style.

Our Bass Lake vacay in pictures.
Panning for gold.
Looking for squirrels.
Olde Timey train ride
Swimming. Lots of swimming.
Until we meet soon.
Love you forever and ever Bass Lake.

{P.S.  All of the pics were taken with my point and shoot and are straight out of  the camera.  The collages were made in Picnik.  Proof that you don't need a fancy cammy, endless hours to edit and Photshop to capture your family's memories.  Be encouraged by that.  Don't put off taking beautiful pictures until you think you have the right equipment or skills.  Start with what you have.  I promise that you are even more amazing than you think that you are.}

  1. Bass Lake? That means we aren't too far from each other, unless you had to travel a VERY long way to get there. Dh & I had our first unofficial date there, it's very beautiful! As for the point & shoot, it's not the camera---it's the talent behind the camera---Great Job!

  2. Awesome! It looks like you had a fantastic time! And great timing with this post; I have photoshop and wanted to learn how to do a collage, but haven't made the time to make it through that intimidating ol' process. :) Nice to know I have options!!

  10. Picnik ROCKS! I've had some fun with it lately as well. This is, um, rather hard to admit - but I've heard of Bass Lake before and I don't even live in the same state. There was a furor over it once on The Real Housewives. Not that I watch that trash, or anything... ;)

  13. beautiful
    what great family/quality time

    that's my favourite advice to give-
    "you're much more amazing than you think you are"-
    wish people would get it....wish I would too

  14. I have really learned to appreciate the simplicity of my point and shoot. Sometimes my SLR just stresses me out, so I leave it at home especially when you have the natural light outside

  16. Is it just me, or is that an ULTRA blonde Julie with shorter hair? Did I miss the "this isn't me in the photo" memo, or did I skip the "going ultra blonde right now!" Tweet?

    Love the pics. And the place. And the advice.
