It was the only day I used the film camera, as DH took the digital on his Segway tour, and I can't find the darn things anywhere! I had them cropped and laying on the table with my scrapping stuff, and now they aren't there! I guess one of the kids may have done something with them, but they both insist they didn't.......waaah.

I'm going to go move all that paper, sheet by sheet and see if I somehow missed them. Thanks for letting me whine...

Worst case scenario....you have the negatives so you can get reprints!

Good luck!

Benn tyhere, done that. DH and I spent half an hour Sunday looking for a die cut for my cj that was less than 2 feet from me. Have you tried looking in your grnadmother's tea cups? That's where my die cut went. :p

Seriouly step back for a bit., come back with fresh eyes (or better child interrogation powers ;) ) and you will find them.

i have sooooooooo done that...

it was my 30th birthday and i took my boys to the castle for breakfast with the princesses...hey, yes i know they are boys, but it is my birthday!!! well, all that day i was snapping photos, and later that day at dinner, we also were eating at the castle. we were waiting down stairs before they would let us out for mvmcp. so i decided to change my film and go with a fresh roll...between the kids, and bags, stroller, etc, i had df hold the roll...god only knows what happened to it, but it was gone forever!!! all day...my birthday...no film..no breakfast with the princesses, no dinner at the castle, nothing...

hope you find your pics!!!

Thanks all! I did find the pics, thank goodness. They were in a pile on the table that I thought was trash.....glad I checked! I did have the negs, so it wasn't horrible. I can't believe how bad the film pics look compared to the digitals, but oh well!

Karen, I'm sooo sorry about your pics, how terrible!

I was a little panicked with you! So glad you found the pics! :banana: :cool1: princess:

I did one worse. I was out of state and took pictures that could never be replaced. When the next roll of film failed to load correctly and was no good anymore, I threw away what I thought was the bad roll and when I got home and had the rolls developed I had the blank roll instead. I cried for about an hour in WalMart because I could picture my film in the Kentucky landfill. Lesson: If you don't know which one is garbage take them both to the photo lab!

Thank goodness you found yours! :cool1:

I had almost forgotten that on our last trip my husband left our bag with among other things our camera in it on one of the buses that transport you to the car rental site. We had gotten on the bus by mistake and in our haste not to take a long and unnescessary trip we rushed off before the bus started on its way. We had to wait for almost an hour while the correct bus with our bag was located. Thank goodness it was otherwise it would have been a pictureless trip as we had just arrived for our vacation.

here is another tip...i have had this happen to me 2 different times...once in chicago with a film camera and once in disney...

if you are at the end of the roll of film or if you only have a few more pictures left to fill up that memory card, before you really get involved in something, change them out!!! put a fresh one in...

in chicago, i had my camera, with a roll that included my son's 3rd or 4th birthday party on it. i only had a few more to go, but since we were in chicago and at a wedding, i figured i'd just change it later. well, at the church, i didn't bring in my camera, since you aren't really supposed to take pictures of the ceremony...well our rental car got broken into and my camera was stolen.

then in disney, my digital camera was left in a bathroom (by my son) and we didn't realize it until an hour later. it was of course gone. i only had about 15 more shots to go...my sons had just gotten their hair cut on main street and had color gel and mickey confetti sprinkled in, and they all were gone!!! 2 1/2 days of pics in disney...all lost...and go figure, that was the first trip where i only brought 1 camera!!! i wanted a more current digital, but what a way to have to get one!!!

this is what i have learned, film wise....i always put one of those self adressed self adhesive return address stickers on my rolls of film. that way if one is ever lost, hopefully some kind person will send it to me.

or, i have never done this, but i have heard that some people have an index card that they just put in their camera bag, with their name, address and phone # on it...when you change your roll, take a picture of that card so that the developer will know the owner of that film if it ever has gotten lost in developing, or if somebody else has picked it up.

I have had 2 bad film experiences-both from vacations. In cancun we took everything out of a rental locker and left on a bench a disposable underwater camera and a 5X7 of me swimming with the dolphins . I went back after about 10 minutes when I realized we didn't have them and they were gone. I was pregnant and cried for a while. Then after we got back from Maui for our wedding anniv. I took about 13 rolls in to be developed. The *****person working the 1 hour machine wasn't paying attention and kept putting them in not realizint that after the 4th roll they weren't coming out of the machine. I was so sad. They called aspecialist in the next day( after I stressed how important it was to try to get the pictures out without wrecking them and my husband went there and talked to the manager also-but the next day the specialist said they were ruined and so we got 41/2 rolls from 13 back. I was sad and angry for a long time and will never go there again. Needless to say my dh got me a digital camera for Christmas that year and knows we will be going back again to take lots of pictures.
