July FMS Photo a Day

I decided to participate in Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day challenge for the first time ever this month!  I have always wanted to play but was previously kept busy with my own 365 Grateful Project (now complete).

For this month, I have posted my photo’s daily on Instagram and this morning posted the last photo for the month – 31. Rise.  Here is the list of daily prompts for July!


Most of the photo’s were taken with my phone.  It’s been fun!  Will I continue and play along for August?  Hmmm – better make my mind up quickly because August starts tomorrow!!

I thought it would be nice to do a monthly wrap up of all the photo’s I posted to Instagram for July #fmsphotoaday here on my blog!  To see the photographs larger and with their full descriptions – go to MinsMash Instagram.  Here we go!
