The Story Scrapbook Challenge

This month I want you to tell a story about some form of transportation.   Maybe you want to document your first car, or your parents car when you were growing up.  Have you taken a road trip and needed to rely on four wheels?  Did it all go to plan?  Maybe you are a biker, pedal to the metal roaring across the land, or a cyclist who might like to document those lovely rides you take.

Have you taken a cruise, rowed a boat, toured a town by bus?  Do your children travel to school by school bus?  Do you have your truck licence?  Can you drive a tractor?  Does the idea of train travel fill you with excitement?   Is there a story about a car breakdown, or worse still an accident?   Have you had the jitters flying in an aircraft, or does that thrill you with delight.   Are you the driver or the navigator?

I am really going to enjoy seeing all the stories of the different types of transportation that strikes a chord with us.

The creative team have jumped on board with some wonderful pages.

Kim (KimR+) has created a magical page of her daughter riding her bicycle without the training wheels, what a proud moment, I still remember the wobbles way back when.  Definitely a story that needed to be documented.


Supplies used by Kim:  Adventures in Outlines Words: Traveler,  Assorted Messy Stitches: White No. 05,  Away We Go Element Pack,  Black, White and Turquoise Kit,  Chandra Element Pack,  Fastener Basics No. 01,  Hidden Meadow Element Pack,  Malene Scrapbooking Collection,  Messy Stitched Rectangles: White No. 01,  Roughed Up Pocket Cards: Striped No. 04,  Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01,  Surf Lagoon Element Pack,  Twisted Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 01,  Layered Memories No. 152,  Readymade Journalers: Spring Garden.

Oh boy, Lynnie (Grandma Lynnie) has put together an amazing double page spread, I love photos that spread across the two pages of an amazing car, an amazing history and a story that simply had to be told.   Please do visit the site and read this incredible story.


Supplies used by Lynnie:  Vintage Edge Overlays No. 01,  Grunge Overlays,  Spot Dots Brushes and Stamps No. 08.

And I (Carol) have created a page about a recent car purchase I made.  I like the idea of scrapping our vehicles as they all tell a jigsaw part of the story that is us.  And who knows what cars will look like in the future (take Nellybelle above for instance), so what a a walk down memory lane my car will be in 50 years time!
