I was also inspired by this week's scraplift challenge that included fastened frames. So much inspiration in the gallery, so little time!! So here is what I was inspired to do: My DD#2 is currently spending 3 months in Europe. Winter is not the best time to be there but she's had a wonderful time so far. The collage of photos is from her facebook gallery. My collage doesn't do justice to her photos. She takes fabulous panoramas, etc, on her phone! Journaling: Amy’s been nervous about beginning work. She says “I want to stay a student with no responsibilities and no money!”. She was worried she would have no time to travel. So she’s making the most of the 3 months’ gap between the end of her course and the commencement of full time work in March. She’s having a wonderful time with Will and many other friends they are meeting up with. 2pages: [img][/img] All products by Katie: [u][b][url=]Chalkboard Signage No. 01[/url][/b][/u] staple [u][b][url=]Fastened Frames No. 04[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Finley Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] adorable suitcases [u][b][url=]Harmony Grove Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] tag [u][b][url=]Old Ledger Neutrals Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] paper darkened font: AL Highlight<br /><br />11 comments Sat, 24 Jan 2015 00:41:32 +0000 iTunes Inspiration--Call the Doctor <a href=";title=itunes-inspiration-call-the-doctor&amp;cat=1218"><img class="imgborder" title="Dr_Who_iTunesChallenge.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Dr_Who_iTunesChallenge.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Squeak<br /><br />Description}: Okay, where to start on this one... I'm a huge Dr. Who fan. I've been following this classic BBC television series since the days of Tom Baker, the 4th Doctor ('cause who doesn't love a 12-foot scarf? But I digress...) The show was cancelled back in 1989 but then brought back in 2005 and I could not have been more delighted. Waaaaaay back when the show first started, the writers came up with the most glorious idea for what to do when the actor playing the Doctor wanted to move on from the show. They gave the character of the Doctor the power to regenerate--the character could take on a whole new appearance and personality! Sheer genius! That has allowed the show to remain in production (well, except for those 16 years between 1989-2005, but I'm not bitter...) since it was first broadcast in 1963. Last summer a new Doctor, played by the Scottish actor Peter Capaldi, was introduced. (Mr. Capaldi apparently had a clause written into his contract that he be allowed to use his Scottish accent in his portrayal of the Doctor, and those of you who remember David Tennat's turn as the Doctor will know why this is a big deal. &lt;sound of crickets chirping&gt; Please tell me there are some Dr. Who fans at this site!) Mr. Capaldi would be Doctor No. 12 (or No. 13, depending on whether or not one counts the War Doctor, and you do [i]not[/i] want to wade into that controversy, but I digress again...does all of this sound like gobbledygook? :) ). The first episode of No. 12's tenure aired at a local movie theater last August, and some fellow fans and I attended this movie. I made a scrapbook page about our movie night and have been wondering what I might make as a companion page ('cause everyone knows the Doctor needs a companion...that's a bit of Dr. Who I hear the crickets chirping louder out there? :) ). Mel's most recent [u][b][url=]iTunes challenge[/u][/b][/url] gave me the inspiration I needed to make the perfect companion page. Thanks, Mel, for such a fun challenge! Oh, and you can tell from the page which side of the No. 12/No. 13 controversy I fall. :) Credits Lynn Grieveson [u][b][url=]All White Now Paper Pack No. 02[/url][/b][/u] Cassie Jones [u][b][url=]How'd They Do That?

She gives us wonderful examples and it encourages me to try something a little different. Great fun, Mel. Thanks! Did you know that the forerunner of the snowboard was the Snurfer, invented by an engineer back in 1965? You can google it to read about it and they are still for sale. My DH happens to have 2 of the boards tucked away in our garage, given to him by a coworker who retired and moved to Florida. This winter he brought them out for the grandsons to try. They were definitely a hit with them.

My journaling really got carried away with itself I think! [b]Journaling:[/b]My memories of Christmas are scattered. My first true memory when I was five or six or seven is of driving into the town square in Cookeville in what was probably the late 1940’s in Daddy’s old green Studebaker pick-up truck. There was a stone wall about three feet tall around the courthouse in the town center . . . leaning against that wall were cedar trees marching around the entire circumference. I am sure that there were several old men who had chopped down the legions of cedar trees on their various farms to populate the Court House Square for the month of December. The Court house would be playing Christmas carols from the bell shaped loud speakers on the four corners of the building, the old men would sit on the fence and whittle the scrap cedar into fanciful shapes to give to the children . . . Mr. Saul carved me a boot once when I was there with my Daddy. I really don’t remember the price of the trees, but I do remember talking to Daddy about buying a Christmas tree many years later and him telling me that when I was really little they were a quarter a tree for the little ones and that later the price climbed to a dollar a tree for a medium tree. I am sure that I climbed up on the rock wall and walked it’s surface around the courthouse block. Almost everyone we knew had or native cedar or pine tree like Rose Leigh, Aunt Lucille and Aunt Velma did for their Christmas tree’s in those years. To have a fir or spruce meant that you had more money or were more sophisticated than we were. These pretty trees were always purchased at Mr. Saunders’s Florist on Broad Street across town on the corner by the Shank’s Hotel. The Hooper’s always had a fir tree from the florist and I decided early on that when I had some money of my own that I would have a tree like the one, which Helen Ann’s daddy had. Jenny’s family used an aluminum tree with colored lights reflecting on it. I remember that I liked to help decorate the tree and the house for Christmas. I don’t think that Mother enjoyed this nearly as Daddy and I did! Daddy probably put the large multicolored lights on the tree before we added the ornaments. The bad part of this was that the Cedar made me itch and have little red spots on my hands. My job after Christmas was to take the shiny silver icicles off of the branches and return them stretched out straight back into the box. When Ernie &amp; I married, our first tree was a tiny one, which sat on a little table in the tiny Hotel Regina in Darmstadt, Germany. We stayed there for a few months after moving to Germany where we the Army sent us. The next few years while in the Army we had Pine Trees . . . so much for my much wanted Fir! Our prettiest trees were those we had while stationed at Ft. Monmouth in New Jersey . . . guess it is that colder climate where the variety of Christmas trees is so large. Our favorite was one, which had lots of what we called our elf shelves in which to tuck ornaments. After the military we moved back to the South and have always had Frazer Fir trees . . . they are pretty and last a long time (except for the one tree which lost every single needle in the house) and they don’t make my hands break out. The kids always loved helping me decorate the tree. Michael became my expert strings of light installer! I still hate that job! I love each of our Christmas trees . . . I miss the old cedars of my childhood at home and at Mama &amp; Aunt Velma’s house. I miss the wonderful smells of the cedar trees and the joy of going to buy them with my daddy.

[u][b][url=]Chalkboard Ornaments Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] Journaling: My first waterfall illumination was at Albion Falls in Hamilton, January 11th, 2014, and I was in complete awe! I had heard about it by one of the members on the “Waterfalls of Hamilton ”Facebook website and was really curious to go and see what it was all about. Chris Eckland is the main man behind it, who started the website, to raise awareness about Hamilton and all the beautiful waterfalls and attractions we have in the area. (namely over 100 waterfalls) Chris owns all of these coloured lights and sets them up at different waterfalls, throughout the year (with the help of numerous volunteers), and also asks for food donations for the Hamiliton food banks from people who show up. It was a cold night, but I really didn’t feel the cold, I was just captivated by the amount of manpower to put something like this together and by the sheer beauty of it all. What an amazing night and a great cause!

I've started delving into the stories of how my DH's ancestors travelled to Australia. It is totally engrossing! Picture is of Port Adelaide about the time that one of my DH's ancestors arrived. A journaling page will accompany this as soon as I get my notes in order - pop back in 12 hours! Supplies (all by Katie) iTunes freebie [b]Paint it Gold No2 **coming soon** [/b](applied using soft light to give it a worn edge). [u][b][url=]Alandia Rancheros Solids Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] [img][/img] Journaling: A mere month after Sarah and Andrew were married they boarded the “Medina” to sail to Australia, a Government ship carrying hundreds of Highland shepherds and agricultural labourers. A report in the Sydney Morning Herald (10/9/1852) described the scene in Birkenhead as the immigrants gathered to embark: “The establishment now presents an animated and interesting appearance in consequence of the continual arrival of emigrants, at least three-fourths of whom are Highlander… the tide of Scotch emigrants has rapidly increased. The appearance of these people who are leaving the land of their birth is squalled and comfortles enough; while others are decently clad, and the hue of health upon their cheeks, and the beaming expression of their countenances would rather suggest the idea that they are anticipating the pleasures of a summer excursion, rather than that they are tearing themselves away from their fatherland. The scene during the time the emigrants are seated at one of their meals is pregnant with the liveliest interest. Mingled with the clatter of knives and forks, or cups and saucers, there is a continual buz and chatter in the Highland dialect; while little boys and girls adding their shriller notes to the din, aid the production of a peculiarity of sound strongly suggestive of the confusion which overtook the builders of the Tower of Babel.” Their ship left Liverpool on 26th June with 410 government emigrants. It sailed around the Cape of Good Hope on 6th September and arrived on 9th October. During the voyage fourteen infants died of diarrhoea. The Medina brought 1991 bars, 140 bundles, 71 plates, 1 plough, 1 case, 305 tons coals, and 2 boxes containing £10,000 in coined Gold and Silver for the Bank of South Australia. (a side note... the photo is actually from at least 1865, so a bit later. I just found an etching of their port of departure from June 1852! I like the format of this project because it will be easy to swap things around and add more pages in my 6x8 D-ring binder!)<br /><br />8 comments Tue, 18 Nov 2014 20:59:57 +0000 Hello Dolly 2014 <a href=";title=hello-dolly-2014&amp;cat=1218"><img class="imgborder" title="hello_dolly_2014.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="hello_dolly_2014.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: wendymck<br /><br />Description}: My daughter was in this show this past weekend.

I have been avoiding scrapping it, because I just didn't know what to do. When Mel posted the iTunes challenge…it hit me like a ton of bricks….just simple and vintage. Katie's freebie added the perfect amount of embellishment. I can't confirm this, but my Grandmother did model for Maginel Wright (Frank Lloyd Wrights sister) in FLW's studio in Oak Park, IL for some watercolor paintings when she was young. I wonder if this photo was taken so Maginel could do the paintings? We have 4 paintings of her, the 4 seasons...not with these exact clothes, but similar.
