To begin with, I am ecstatic at my youngest daughter’s impending marriage, only a few weeks away. Three years ago, her lovely fiancé tragically took his own life…leaving her devastated &amp; broken. Watching her slowly reclaim her emotional trust in someone else has been both painful and joyful. Meanwhile, my company has been in a financial pickle &amp; recently filed for bankruptcy, owing me $300,000. 00. This was to be my retirement fund. The lawyers tell me I can expect to receive approximately $30,000. I am 68 years old this week, and recognize that there is no time left, to recoup that lost retirement money. And last week my dog went blind in his right eye. Still, for some odd reason, I am feeling peaceful. I am playing Pickleball in a competitive league, volunteering at The Humanitarian Service Project, going out with friends &amp; see my grandchildren on a regular basis. It’s a puzzle, for sure and many of the pieces are not very pretty. But for some reason… I know, that all the pieces I need are there for me to work with &amp; the puzzle with come together as it is meant piece at a time.

I'm loving these page makeover challenges because it gives me an opportunity to re-work a page I'm not entirely happy to be including in one of my photobooks. I've chosen to makeover [b][u][url=;title=i-27heart-27-white-stuff&amp;cat=500]this page[/url][/b][/u] I did for an impromptu patterned paper challenge we had some time ago. Without this makeover, I'm afraid I wouldn't have included this story in my photobook this year! Journaling: I don’t buy many things from White Stuff because it’s quite a pricey store. It doesn’t stop me from loving the lightweight knits, the ditzy florals and the cotton tops though. I love the little details. This three quarter sleeved cardigan has a sweet little star charm with ‘WS’ sewn on the edge of the pocket. The garment tags are also eye candy. I like that these items of clothing look like they’ve been made with love. I certainly wear them with love. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of wearing the few pieces I have. I keep them for weekend wear. LOVE the way they make me feel. Just LOVE White Stuff.

Journaling: I really do push myself out of my comfort zone a lot. I have no idea why I do and I am starting to question myself as I get older but I have always done it. But! This one was a biggy. TV show for photographers. 16 contestants pitted against each other for 16 episodes. I entered. I auditioned. I made it! I hung in there for 14 of those! I was the last 4. Exhausting 6 weeks of filming. 6 weeks of climbing mountains, creating a fashion show shoot, walking through derelect, on fire buildings in the freezing cold were just some of the challenges. I outlasted all the other “oldies” and all the other girls. Swimming and photographing sharks was my downfall! The director told me at the wrap party that they “knew” I was going to bail and had a camera crew on land. But I didn’t. I sucked in all my absolute fears and breathed and somehow controlled the fear and took some shots. However they were deemed not to be good enough and I, on live TV, was evicted. SO. Why did I do it? So my grandchildren can say - “My granny was on a reality show” . I was. It’s true. I was way out of my theoretical comfort zone. But I did it.

Birthdays are special days – they’re all yours; you share that day with no one else. My 16th birthday is particularly memorable. Mom and I took a girls’ trip to San Francisco. Coming from a small town of about 5,000 people, visiting San Francisco is an extraordinary experience. We stayed in a small, quaint Bed and Breakfast where we didn’t have a private bath. I don’t remember the sights we saw, but I do remember that a 16-year-old girl had the special opportunity to go shopping in the big city. I’m not sure what I bought, but I know I had to buy at least one pair of shoes. I’m sure we rode the trolley at least once. Why do I know this? I know the trolley was part of my birthday visit because the cake my mother had made for the surprise birthday party she hosted for me after school started had a trolley car on top. Friends attending included LeAn Gardner, Cyd McMullen, Carol Smith, Teryl Ann Christean, Renea Arenguena, Pauline Oki, Beth Duncombe, Sherry Jones, Karen Moell, Sally Wilson, and Ann Warren.

I use mostly from one kit when I'm scrapping so I thought this would be easy. I found while I might use mostly from one kit, I have a hard time using just one kit. And, limited to just one item from somewhere else. Whew! Tough! I junked my first try. The pictures that I was trying to use were too dark and the kit is a lot of dark colors so I didn't like the tone of it. I'm posting my second try. This was better. I'm still itching to add to it from different kits.

Thanks for the challenge Jess, it inspired me to document my desire for an eternity ring! I love chunky rings and I’ve worn quite a few sparkly dress rings in the past that weren’t quite the real thing. Oh but how I loved the sparkle. My wedding ring is a slim, dainty ring and don’t get me wrong, I love it and wouldn’t change it for the world but I’d love a BIG chunky eternity ring like this one. It’s one of the things on my ‘can’t justify the expense’ list. But I’ll keep searching and one day, I will find THE ring for me with a reasonable price tag.

Just one kit with a bazillion goodies can be enough to get a layout or four done! *grin* I used the wonderful school-themed kit Lynn chose and my ONE other item... the epoxy bubbles from the &quot;Swimmies&quot; kit! I actually had one other item on the layout (a tag) from the &quot;Swimmies&quot; kit, but then I reread Lynn's rules: Only ONE item outside the kit! So the tag had to go! *wink* This is silly but it's a story that needed to be told and it actually does sorta/kinda relate to school... read on! *grin* Yes, the fish is named Hannibal and Shannon made the placard kind of as a joke because I keep calling him/her &quot;Fishy&quot;... ha! And, yes, there's a screen on top of the bowl... one day while DH was eating breakfast, the fish literally jumped out of the bowl and was flopping on the floor! Dumb fish! LOL [U]JOURNALING[/U] HOW TO SAVE A GOLDFISH By Rick Boler Take the dog for a walk at Kaiser Park early in the the morning after the Kaiser Elementary School “Spring Fair”. See something shiny in the thick grass. Look closer and pick it up. Observe a baggie with a goldfish swimming around in it. Assume some kid dropped it at the fair the night before. (Or maybe it was some uncaring parent who didn’t want the hassle of fish ownership. Ha.) Bring it home and leave it on the counter in Debi’s big glass mixing bowl. Have Debi and Shannon find the fish and immediately go to Petco and buy fish supplies. Have them go back to Petco three weeks later for a bigger bowl and more supplies. Never in a million years expect said fish to be fat and happy and still alive almost 1½ years later!

You are at a stage now where you are trying to draw things. It started with numbers and that’s no surprise really. Everything starts with numbers with you, beautiful boy! Even your speech started with numbers! You would get Daddy and I to write out 1-10 so you could practice writing over the top of them. Now you can do a 1 (and 11) by yourself and almost a 2 and 3 as well. Then we moved on to faces. That started with you and I making play doh figurines and then you decided you wanted to try drawing faces. I showed you once and now that is your favourite thing to draw. You tell me the bits of the face as you draw them. We have added in clocks now, too. You like to draw the clock face and then have me add different times for you to tell me. You love drawing so much that you saw me putting this page together this morning and immediately asked for your crayons! This is your interpretation of a face with big round eyes and a big smile. The yellow things are ears. Lately you add hair to your face drawings as well. Whenever I ask who it is though, you usually giggle and say, &quot;It’s Mummy!” Of course it is me, how silly of me to even ask!<br /><br />6 comments Tue, 09 Sep 2014 22:12:27 +0000 Back to School (Scrap This!

Check it out for more details and join in the fun! Thanks for the challenge Linda! So much fun! I’ve been discontent with my photography for a while now. My photo’s just don’t reflect what I saw through the viewfinder. They lack clarity, definition and colours generally don’t come close to those that I thought I’d captured at the time. I know even the best photographers can take 100’s of pictures and just get one or two top shots but those that I consider my top pictures still don’t reach the mark for me. So... I’ve ramped up my game and enrolled for a photography course. If I follow through, it will be a three year learning curve. With assessments. I recall the kids’ practice of mind mapping with coloured pencils which seemed to work for them. I may adopt their method because I‘m determined. Determined to conquer my photography demons. Determined to get to grips with my big girl DSLR. No problem. No sweat. I WILL win this one.

Journaling: Probably my earliest school memory is getting a spanking in first grade. I must have been super slow doing my work because one day I had to stay in the classroom (alone) during recess to finish copying something from the board. When I finished, I promptly erased the board, helpful child that I was. When Mrs. Lusink and the other children returned from recess, she said, &quot;Who erased the board?&quot; Now that I think of it, this was surely a rhetorical question since I was the only one in the classroom. I inched my hand into the air. For my helpfulness, I got a spanking out in the hallway. The rule at our house was if you got a spanking at school, you also got one when you got home. I may have been slow, but I wasn't stupid. I didn't tell my parents I had gotten a spanking at school until I was in the fifth grade when I figured the statute of limitations had expired. 09.03.14 [b]Katie Pertiet[/b] [u][b][url=]Brilliant Life Scrapbook Kit[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Notebook Paper Pack No. 07[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Stamped Alphabet No. 03[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Drop Shadow Styles No. 02[/url][/b][/u] [b]Ali Edwards[/b] [u][b][url=]Celebration Of Life Brushes and Stamps[/url][/b][/u] Font Veteran Typewriter<br /><br />6 comments Tue, 09 Sep 2014 13:59:00 +0000 Turning 50 <a href=";title=turning-50&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="50thbday-web.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="50thbday-web.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: DigiWendy<br /><br />Description}: Nice to be able to have a little time to play along!

This time I decided to scrap one of mine. :) Journaling reads: We celebrate everyone’s birthday with some form of cake. Victoria’s tend to be the most elaborate. I’m happy with a store bought quarter sheet with cute decorations. I don’t usually bother with writing on cakes for either myself or Jeff. However, Victoria decided this year that the cake needed Happy Birthday. She has discovered decorattor icings. She tried her hand at writing happy birthday Mom on the cake. I think she did excellent for her first try. It’s not easy to write in icing. We very much enjoyed our cake on my birthday and Victoria was complimented on her additional decorations and writing.

Journaling: June 1984, I am going to celebrate my seventh birthday. Unlike other kids I wasn't excited about a party with balloons and cakes. I was excited to wear a new dress that Mamang(my grandmother) made. A few days before my birthday, Mamang was busy on her sewing machine. I knew that I will get a new dress because her grandchildren always do on their birthdays. So I approached her and asked: “Is that going to be my new dress?” She said that it is not. But as a little kid I was persistent, I asked why are the sleeves small and why did she measure me a few days back. I guess she was bent on surprisng me with the new dress that she put the materials away when she had enough of my questions. I did not see her work on that dress after that. On the day of my birthday, I woke up to see a beautiful light green dress with puffed sleeves hanging by my cabinet. I was right, the one she was working on was mine. That was thirty years ago, but still vivid in my memory. It reminds me of how much she loved me in her own way.

IT’S COMPLETELY OUT OF CHARACTER FOR ME THESE DAYS AND I CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I BOUGHT A DRESS BUT GEE, IT LEFT ME WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE AND A SPRING IN MY STEP. I DON’T WATCH A LOT OF TV. I ONLY SIT DOWN AND WATCH AT NIGHT AND EVEN THEN IT IS USUALLY ONLY BACKGROUND NOISE. I HAVE MY GUILTY PLEASURES THOUGH THAT I DON’T LIKE TO MISS. MASTERCHEF TOPS THAT LIST. FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY SELLING HOUSES AUSTRALIA, AND DANCE MOMS. MOST NIGHTS THOUGH, YOU CAN FIND THE TV ON ONE OF THE DOCUMENTARY CHANNELS. DYLAN AND I HAVE SEEN DOCOS ON MOST THINGS! I HAVEN’T USED AN ALARM CLOCK SINCE I BECAME A MUMMY. THAT’S NOT TO SAY I SLEEP IN EVERY MORNING. I DON’T THINK I HAVE SLEPT IN SINCE BECOMING A MUMMY! LINC IS SUCH A PREDICTABLE SLEEPER - ALWAYS IN BED AT THE SAME TIME AND ALWAYS UP ANYTIME BETWEEN 6-7AM. POPPY IS THE OPPOSITE AND CAN WAKE ONCE A NIGHT OR MANY TIMES. THROW INTO THE MIX I AM AN EARLY BIRD AND THERE REALLY IS NO NEED FOR AN ALARM CLOCK! I HAD TO GIVE UP MY MORNING AND AFTERNOON COFFEE TO SEE IF THAT WAS IMPACTING ON POPPY’S SLEEPLESS NIGHTS., I WON’T LIE - THE MORNINGS ARE HARD WITHOUT IT &amp; I HAVEN’T FOUND A SUBSTITUTE YET. YEAH, I CAN HAVE A CUP OF TEA BUT IT JUST DOESN’T HAVE THE SAME KICK WHEN I HAVE BEEN UP ALL NIGHT WITH A FUSSY BABY! HOT CHOCOLATE IS NICE TOO BUT I FIND IT TOO SWEET IN THE AM. I SO MISS MY COFFEE! I AM REALLY LOVING MEAL PLANNING AND TRYING NEW RECIPES LATELY. SINCE MISS POPPY HAS BEGUN SOLIDS, I HAVE BEEN ALTERING OUR MEALS SO I ONLY HAVE TO COOK ONCE. IT HAS BEEN A LOT OF FUN EXPERIMENTING AND TRYING NEW THINGS. I AM ALSO TRYING TO KEEP IT AS HEALTHY AS POSSIBLE THOUGH WITH LOTS OF VEGGIES AND FRESH FRUITS FOR SNACKS. I AM HOOKED ON FRESH PINEAPPLE, KIWI AND ORANGES AT THE MOMENT.<br /><br />14 comments Tue, 02 Sep 2014 21:04:39 +0000 Story Scrapbook Challenge <a href=";title=story-scrapbook-challenge&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="Cake_Candles_and_Fire1.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Cake_Candles_and_Fire1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: blkcow<br /><br />Description}: Carol is hosting a fantastic Storybook Challenge this week. We are to remember an EPIC birthday celebration….well, this is mine. Journaling reads: The day was September 16th. The year was 1956. The event was my 2nd birthday celebration. My Mother must have worked hard to make this Circus themed birthday a success. My brothers and sister were standing just out of the frame and no one could have ever imagined what the final outcome would be. Just seconds after the candles were lit and Happy Birthday was sung, the red and white circus canopy burst into flames. I don’t remember any of it, but have heard the story retold many times by family members. There are no photos of the fire, I can only assume that in the ensuing chaos the camera was put down while trying to extinguish the fire. It made for a very memorable birthday celebration!
