Template Tuesday – Featured Template: New York City Explorer

Inspiration Source: KiddyKit Designs
Basic Materials: 12×12 design template, 19 Elements – 14 photos, 3 papers: 3 plain, 1 banner, 1 street sign

Suggestions: Living in New York City can be very expensive. When working with a limited budget take time to relax and enjoy the surroundings. It costs nothing – maybe just a few tips for your subjects – and you can capture the heart of the city using your point and shoot camera. Just charge the battery, grab the camera, and hit the streets for a day of adventure. Try it in your city. You’ll be in awe at the treasures you’ll uncover.
