It’s that time of year…

by mamagrace71 on July 31, 2012

 …when you wonder,”Where has the year gone?” But at the same time think, “Christmas can’t get here soon enough!”

Anyway, that’s what going through my mind when I was collaborating my July Photo A Day Challenge mosaic.

As with many, I’m just tired, I guess. And that’s bound to happen when you’ve just hauled through 7 months of the year.

Fave photo? Day 1 – Selfie. Yup, that’s me with a Blogopolis hangover.

Most popular? Day 20 – Eye.  The “apples of my eye” in their bright orange and yellow sloppy joes.

Highlights? This is the month the twinlets turn 2 and a half. Two. AND a half!!! Oh my, I think I need to have a lie down…

How was your July ?

Linking up with Trish over at My Little Drummer Boys.

Two and a half they are so adorable I would take them off you any day. and Swap you for my younger two girls. Loved day 20 as well. My july has been ok on my break and itching to go back.

Great photos again. My collage doesn’t look nearly as good. Must. Try. Harder. :)
Day 15 (finger) is a favourite – I wanted to get a shot exactly like that but my 2 and 3/4 year old had other ideas!

Awesome pics! I missed photo a day in July, but joining in for August! My biggest little one is a couple months off three. Must say I liked two and a half – she started stringing words together in little sentences! So cute x

Yay! I just clicked on your mosaic and it enlarged for me. Yes, it’s the first time I knew I could do that! So I had a good scan through all of them this time, which was much easier now larger and easier to see.

Firstly, I adore that plate! I want one. Where did you see it and how can I get one?

Secondly, only two photos of food this month? Usually there’s more. Are you on a diet?

Finally, my favourite is the two boys in the bath. So super dooper cute. I just love that photo!

Penny! Didn’t you enter my fab giveaway a couple of weeks ago on FYBF ?
My friend sells that plate at her shop and I’m doing a giveaway for her (not the plate but some other fabulous stuff).
Do I usually snap more photos of food? Hmmm…I never noticed…

I love all your IG photos, but this time, I particularly enjoyed the last one of the twins in tub. Love the do!

great pics! I’d be lying down too if I had 2.5 year old twins! I’m exhausted with a six month old :)
I like day 15 with your hands.

Such a great idea putting your pics into a mosaic like this!

July was a crap month for me, but it finished well. I’m hoping August flies by as I am ready for Spring!
Gorgeous photos Grace, as always!

My July was cold, very cold! Looking forward to sunny spring. I love your mosaic, we are so lucky to live in an era with amazing technology that makes documenting our daily lives through photos easy. I’m doing the August challenge and really looking forward to it.

So vibrant and colourfu! I am really wanting to join in with Photo a day, but am waiting til i get an iPhone in November as my current HTC is not good at photos at all! :)


Kim-Marie August 1, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Love the mosaic. It’s really clever. I think my favourite photo is 22, with the boat. x

Can NOT believe it’s August. Some great photos there, Grace. I can see why the ‘apples of your eye’ photo was such a hit- your boys are cuties. Creative interpretation of the ‘eye’ prompt too. Well done on another successful month of Photo-a-day. :)

I really thought it was just last week that I liked/loved the yogi babies picture. Wow, time really flies so fast, is it just me or the world really is spinning a wee bit faster? Happy hump day Grace-ie!

Great collage Grace, and congrats on surviving to 2.5 lol
This year has gone so incredibly fast. I’ve had a really good July. The second half of the year is always fun for me, full of family birthdays and the countdown to christmas :)

Coffee. And the other picture of….coffee! Love the streaming sun picture and the toy sailboat. But my absolute favorite is the bathtub shot. Love bath time pictures. Too bad pedophiles had to ruin posting them. Happy Two – and a half, guys!
