Thanks, Dad!

As cool as I think my home-made lightbox is, streamlined it definitely isn't! I would take pictures in my craft room, if I brought my camera out there, but because of it's bulkiness, most often I found myself resorting to my two sheets of cardstock phototaking in the house.

Today, after a rousing game of miniature golf, we stopped by Wolf Camera to see if they had a lanyard to attach the lens cap to my dad's camera. They were out, but I asked on a whim if they had lightboxes (d'oh-they should, it's a camera shop) and what was the cost. After explaining its purpose to my dad while the salesperson checked the price of this one, he decided to buy it for me as an early birthday present!
Now I just need to get the hang of using it correctly! LOL

My dad is the best! :o)

By the way, I found out today that at the last hole, if you hit a gutter ball, water DOES come shooting out of the tikis. I actually shot a hole in one there, but no flame came out, just smoke. Maybe I didn't hit it hard enough? I thought I heard a good thunk, but who knows. Anyway, no pictures today, but we all had fun. (and... shhhhhh....I won this time! hee, hee...)

Thanks for visiting! My dad heads out on Thursday morning, so maybe after that I'll have some time to create something.

That is so nice! I can't wait to see what you think of it. I was just thinking about one of these the other day. Let us know if you like it. I am doing the two pieces of cardstock like you were doing.

What a great gift, Jeanne! I haven't used mine all that often (as long as I have sunshine coming through the window, it's not worth the time and trouble to set mine up -lol), but I think you'll be happy you have one.

Pretty cool about getting a hole-in-one; I'm impressed!
