A scrapbook tool (in your purse!)

OK, I am pretty sure I poo-poo’ed camera phones on my blog but that was before I got one! My phone is not fancy, it is a trac-phone. I was happy with my old one but when my husband ordered a new one with a camera on it he asked if I wanted to trade…hmmm..I’d give it a shot…and you know what? I love it! The pictures are not great. It is a 2 megapixel camera with a teeny lens but ya know what? It’s good enough. I am not going to carry my camera with me wherever I go, I rarely carry a purse so if it can’t fit in my pocket I’ll do without it.  I wouldn’t use it to take pictures on Christmas or my kid’s birthday but at the beach or the park, heck yeah, I’ll use it! Here is a scrapbook page I made with shots from my camera phone…hey, it’s better than nothing!

 

Did I mention our boys WON the packwagon scramble?…oh I did…sorry. 🙂

So, if your phone has a camera why not use it once in a while to capture something scrapworthy.

BTW, I get my pictures from my phone to my printer by emailing them to myself…I felt real tech-savvy when I figured that trick out 😀 Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  2. Great Job! Here’s another thing you can do use dropbox. Its a free program and it will automatically sync your pics from your phone to your pc and you won’t have to email them to yourself. Have a great day!

  3. My phone is al,most always with me, we have extended family around the country and you never know when there’ll be an emergency. I use the camera function whenever caught off guard &/or without a camera! It’s one of the greatest tools we have! Your page is GREAT!

  4. Congrats to the boys for the big win. They look so cute. I have a pink Blackberry with a 2Megapixel camera. I hardly use the Camera. I need to more. Your pictures inspired me. I hate talking on the phone so I only use it to take notes.
