The Rocky Mountains...and LMPT!

I got back from vacation a few weeks ago. I went to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado! It was super cool. I've got some pictures for you !
It was a two day trip in the car. I watched lots of movies, Looked at all the corfields outside, and even finished the whole Rebecca series! (I'm a really fast reader.) When we finally got there, I helped my parents set up camp and then went exploring.

There were lots of rocks and trees to climb!
I found a nice, shady Ponderosa Pine to sit under. Did you know they smell like butterscotch?!
I bought a little stuffed Raccoon at the gift shop. I named him Rascal, because real life raccoons are so tricky! I also bought some posters for my room.
Have you ever been out west?
LMPT Update:
While I didn't win the contest, I did win 1st in Round 3, out of this world! Thanks for all the votes everyone, and congrats to the winners and other contestants! Love you guys!

This is me leaving for summer vacation! I'm going to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. It's going to be so much fun camping in the mountains (with the bears!) and when I get back I'll share all my photos with you!

LMPT Round 4: Solo!

Hey Y'all!This week the theme was Solo (what you do when you're alone.) When I have alone time, I go visit Casper. Sometimes I'll bring him a treat, like a carrot or a sugar cube. He loves the attention!

I love this picture! Casper is my best horsey friend, and I think it shows that.
Now for my favorite, a bonus pic! I love my cowboy hat :) Only one more round to go...see you later!~Nellie <3

LMPT Round 3: Out of this World!

This week the theme was space (although some people went beyond that for some awesome pictures!) I recently saw Brave, and so I just had to copy the short film they show before the movie-La Luna!
I really love my idea. Have you seen La Luna?
Bonus pic! This was how we set up the photoshoot. I already have my Round 4 pic, but it's a surprise...Bye! :)

LMPT Round 2: Contrast!

Hi! This week the theme for LMPT was Contrast. Originally I wanted to do Hamlet, "To be or not to be..." but I couldn't fit it in to the picture very well, so I went with a different approach:
Team Peeta vs. Team Gale!! I finished the first book last weekend, so I just had to! What team are you? I think I'm team Peeta, but I'll have to keep reading :)
I also curled my hair for this round, just for fun. What do you think?
Bonus pic!
Have a great day, and see you next week!

LMPT Round 1: Weather

Hey Y'all!
Well, round one is officially over! I will admit, weather was a tough round. I had to find an original approach to the category, and make it stand out. I chose playing in the mud after it rained, which wored perfectly because I love mud! I made a collage of all the extra photos we took, and I wanted to share it with you.
Isn't that cool? I love how the boots stand out and the black and white looks vintage. For all you who can't vote or see the entries, I have the photo I entered right here!
There it is! I have a funny story...The day I wnt to take this picture, the camera died! We had to do the whole photoshoot with a cell phone (and it wasn't one of those fancy smart phones, either!) I think it turned out great though.
Next week is Contrast, and I've got a little somethin' somethin' up my sleeve...
See you later!
~Love Nellie <3
