Saturday Snapshots with Phrase.It


I just love Saturday Snapshots with Miss Nelson's Got the Camera! It's fun to see the personal side of my sweet bloggy friends and meet new bloggers as well. This linky has also encouraged me to delve into photo editing just a bit. Last week Miss Nelson inspired me to learn about watermarks, and this week I stumbled upon an online speech bubble photo editor called Phrase.It. The possibilities for classroom use with this website are endless: writing captions, creating comics, etc. The best part is that it is free and requires no registration--- so easy-peasy! Just upload a photo, select a bubble style, drag it in place, type some text and VOILA! The two snapshots that I'm sharing today were created using Phrase.It.

This first snapshot is of my extremely temperamental, tabby Daisy Mae. I made it to post to my niece's FaceBook timeline as a teaser. For eleven years Daisy Mae LOVED my niece! Then three years ago, I took a week vacation and my niece had to come in daily to feed and care for Ms. Daisy. Since then... forget it. All I have to say is, "Becky's coming," and Daisy up and stomps up the stairs... no kidding. And when Becky comes to my house, Daisy growls at her then disappears.


The second snapshot is of moi! I made this one to post to my class website as a reminder to my sixers that they need to do their summer reading. Can you imagine their faces when they visit the site and get a load of this? LOL!!!!!!



Happy Snapping,
Happy Teaching,

    1. Hahaha I got your reply about the word stroppy- I'm rapidly learning how many colloquial and slang words we use in New Zealand that the rest of the world has no idea about!
