I will print five copies on my home printer on 8 ½” x 14” heavy cardstock . . . one to hang on our refrigerator and the others to give to our children to hang in their homes. Below is the original page, which I resized to fit my calendar. I did need to eliminate some of the elements in order to make it fit the calendar photograph area.

And, it just so happens to be something I actually do fairly regularly since I scrap for myself in 12x12 and my kids' books have been 8½x11 since my paper scrapping days many moons ago! I think it's fairly easy for me (most of the time!) because I don't have a lot of elements that 'hang over' the smaller sized canvas when I drag them (all layers locked together!) from the larger page to the 8½x11 blank page. Typically, I can reduce the sizes by 10%-15% and be good... although most of the time I do have to change the journaling layout and font size so it's readable! Notice that I changed not only the font size but also the shape of the journaling block to better fit this smaller page. And, in the case of this layout, I did have to tweak the scribbly border to make the original square border into a rectangle! My original 12x12 layout: [img][/img] [b][u][url=;title=bb-hello-dorm-life-ab&amp;cat=500]»hello dorm life[/b][/u][/url] [U]JOURNALING[/U] You got to move in early, during soccer tryouts. It was a bit strange because it was about 9:00 at night and hardly anyone was around! And we didn’t have all of your things either. But, Dad and I came back on Sunday with both cars loaded and within a few hours your room was finished! So far, no roommate (your assigned roommate cancelled the week before)... we’ll have to wait and see if you get a new one!

Finally I have completed one! I've always loved this challenge because of the journaling opportunity but I always end up with some kind of &quot;writer's block&quot; and an unfinished project. Somehow I got through this one and I think I just have to put less pressure on myself, lighten up and just go with it! TFL! Journaling reads: We had just moved into the neighborhood three weeks before school started and I now had to fill out emergency contact forms and list, not one, but two neighbors as contacts. I didn’t know my neighbors yet and before I started to stress out and panic, I heard a knock at my front door. And there she was, my neighbor and soon to be good friend, Glori, who came to save the day. She introduced herself and asked me if we could exchange information as contacts for the school forms and she had another neighbor’s name I could add to my list. And so our friendship began. We were so different but our kids were of the same ages and our husbands were wacky and funny, so we enjoyed family, food and just having fun together. From borrowing eggs or herbs, to baby sitting, to sharing a glass of wine, to being the first ones out to start shoveling snow, to watching the kids go sledding then grabbing a bite to eat at a local restaurant, to trick or treating, to our annual labor day barbecue and New Year’s eve parties , these are only a few of the many wonderful times we’ve shared as friends.

The title is the challenge from week 2. Right now… I’m loving the Capture and Project Life Apps. Djuring Week at aGlance, Idiscovered both of them and completed all my layoutson my iPad. Right now… I’m enjoying the peace and quiet at home while the schools’ fall break means not being the homework Nazi. Right now… I’m exploring the idea of an ongoing Project Life album of our everyday life, even though I will continue making traditional digital layouts for my seven grandchildren. Right now… I’m spending more time cuddling our 13-year-old Schnauzer, Pepe, as I know we will have to say goodbye to her shortly. Right now… I’m looking forward to our master bathroom remodel completion. Hopefully we can enjoy it for a few months before putting our house on the market.

This challenge inspired me to think about my current favourite things - and get them scrapped! My page came together so easily using one of Cathy's Story Guide layered templates. Thanks for the inspiration Jess! 1. Red nail polish. I’ve finally managed to get my nails to a decent length again and as much as I really like the antique rose and the pale nude colours, they just don’t cut it for me like red does. This one is called Hip Hop. Love it. 2. Fruit Crunch Ryvita. I have two slices with a light cheese triangle for lunch Monday through Friday, followed by a yoghurt and a piece of fruit. They’re also my ‘go to’ when I’m craving a biscuit - yes, I can even eat them dry. Genuine! 3. My satchel. I’d been looking for one for a while and found it on Ebay. I love it’s soft goats’ leather and long strap. I can fit all I need in it for work and probably enough things for an overnight stay somewhere. I love to travel with just one bag. 4. Friday evenings. I’ve always loved Friday’s for as long as I can remember but the evenings in particular resonate with me now. Knowing I have the weekend to indulge my creative side makes me a happy gal. 5. My ‘Colours’ board on Pinterest. Colour motivates and inspires me, especially hues. Brights challenge me but I’m learning to work with them when I’m doing pages of our grandkids. But given the choice, I’d opt for softer tones every time.

These three ladies and I became friends about 5+ years ago when our daughter first played together on a club soccer team. We'd walk during practice and talk about the girls, their futures, soccer and life... the good and the bad. Our daughters are now juniors in college and aren't close friends like they were, but us moms still are! And, that's just awesome! And wow... I just realized that I used almost the same composition on this layout as I did on the previous one I posted... geesh... get outta the box, Debi... get outta the box... *sheepish grin* [u]JOURNALING[/U] 4 seriously awesome soccer moms who are still friends even though club soccer ended 2½ years ago! What started in 2009 as four soccer moms getting a bit of exercise while our daugthers were at practice has turned into treasured moments with dear friends. Although our biweekly walks are long gone, our friendship remains. Every few months, we take time from our busy schedules to get together (usually for dinner!) to catch up, share our lives and laugh together! Boy, do we laugh! And, no, we really don’t talk about our girls the whole time either! I always imagine people see us and wonder about our story… hearing Adriana and Flor falling into Spanish sometimes and Rawa’s sweet Persian accent and me… *smiley* I love these ladies and I hope we’re friends forever!

Journaling Spring 1985 – I don’t remember our first meeting but I do know we hit it off right away. Funny how that can happen – two women from very different cultures having an instant oneness. Before long I knew you would be one of the best friends of my lifetime. Within a year we were co-workers so we not only were connected at church but also were now working together every day. You always introduced me with “This is Sharon, our pastor’s wife – but don’t worry, she’s OK!” You even would tell them that I wasn’t a “normal pastor’s wife”. Abnormal in more ways than they ever knew! – LOL!! You helped me learn about and adjust to a new culture. You drew my family into yours in so many ways. We could laugh together, cry together and pray together. I always admired your strength and unwavering faith. Such specialmemories we share! I remember one night you, David and I went to Stuart Anderson’s for dinner and we sat trying to figure out if the tourists would think David and I were married and having dinner with you or if you and David were married and I was his sister visiting from the Mainland! And to this day every time I think of our trip to Kauai I start to laugh! Twelve years later we left Hawaii and moved back to the Mainland. I can’t believe it all began almost 20 years ago. Now these years later many things have changed. Our children are grown and our lives have gone through many changes. But some things never change - my children still call you “Auntie Sue” and yours still call me “Auntie Sharon”. I keep up to date on most of your happenings through Joy and Faith on Facebook. We don’t talk on a regular basis – or even email! But when we do we just pick up where we left off without skipping a beat! There are days I miss you terribly and wish we could sit and chat over a cup of coffee –or better yet your mochi!!!

Their mothers (my grandma and Mrs Morgan) were neighbours and feuding ones at that. If Mrs Morgan hung her washing out at 7am, Grandma would hang hers out at 6.30. When the Morgans put up a blue letterbox, grandpa put up a bigger one. It was ridiculous behaviour. And in between it all their two daughters struck up a friendship. Mum wasn’t even allowed to invite Pam to her wedding and recalls the wedding car leaving the house and looking up and seeing Pam tearfully waving from her bedroom window. Pam has also been like a second mother to me. Having had three sons, I was the daughter she never had. I would spend holidays with her and Tom on the farm, she has become my confidant and a woman I truly look up to and admire. And despite mum and Pam having their lives going in different directions, living in different cities, and having different interests, throughout it all they have remained friends and a good support to each other. A friendship can last a lifetime, these two are the perfect example.<br /><br />14 comments Tue, 07 Oct 2014 10:49:23 +0000 The Story Scrapbook Challenge - Friendship <a href=";title=the-story-scrapbook-challenge-friendship&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="friends71.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="friends71.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Arte Banale<br /><br />Description}: This is a story of a friendship of my daughter Ula and a daughter of my friends - Zuzana. They know each other from their birthday. We used to spend lot of time together : all vacations, all weekends etc. Now, even if their parents meet very rarely, Ula and Zuza are very close. The inspiration for me to do such a page was Zuza's entry on Ula's facebook for her birthday. She made a compilation of their common photos. It was really heart touching! The story under a serie of photos of Ula and Zuza together is about Ula's… hair:) When she was a small girl she had a very straight, rather veak hair but when she began to mature her hair suddenly started to curl! Now she has almost the same hair as her best friend Zuza. We used to say that she become infected by Zuza:) Credits: [u][b][url=]Hung Up Photo Frames No. 09[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Between the Lines Alphabet No. 05[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Big Chalky Arrows Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Astro Scrapbooking Collection[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Notebook Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] TFL:)<br /><br />12 comments Tue, 07 Oct 2014 10:12:35 +0000 Lindas School Kids <a href=";title=lindas-school-kids&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="Lindas_School_Kids.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Lindas_School_Kids.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: MINIDEB<br /><br />Description}: I'm a bit behind - this was for last months's Lesson Book + 1 challenge...since I'm behind I sure hope a template counts as 1!!!

I took inspiration from the home decor piece in the colours yellows and greys and also the sketchy look of the triangles. Journaling : I am sure you ae going think I am saying at last, a girl. Well I could say that but I won't. What we are fairly pleased about is that at last, maybe you have a touch of mommy in you. The boys are all daddy. So it would be really cool if you could look like mommy. You see the thing is, mommy looks like me. She thinks like me. She acts like me. She works hard like me. She loves you a lot, like me. So. If you are like her, then you will be like me. And that would be very very very nice. credits : [u][b][url=]Stitching Holes No.02 Brushes and Stamps[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Arrow Flairs Value Pack No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Flossy Stitches: Orange[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Malene Scrapbook Kit[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 03[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Washi Tapes: Whites No. 01[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />12 comments Thu, 25 Sep 2014 04:48:18 +0000 1409-scb-visitor-parking-121 <a href=";title=1409-scb-visitor-parking-121&amp;cat=1759"><img class="imgborder" title="1409-scb-visitor-parking-121.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="1409-scb-visitor-parking-121.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: beehive50<br /><br />Description}: I absolutely loved Hillarey's choice for the home decor challenge this week on the [b][u][url=]DD blog[/b][/u][/url]... I love, love, love the color scheme and the geometrics paired with the warm wood element! And, stepping out of my proverbial square box, I used the golden circles as my main inspiration! Go figure! *wink* After spraining her ankle in her soccer match, Shannon decided to not make the trek across campus and not try to walk on her swollen and sore ankle. It took us forever that night to figure out which lot she could park in and where she had to buy her parking pass because she couldn't use her permit because it was only valid in the resident dorm lot! LOL [U]JOURNALING[/U] After she sprained her ankle at the Hardin-Simmons game, Shannon decided to drive to her first class the next day since it was the farthest building from her dorm! But she had to buy a visitor’s parking pass ‘cuz her permit is only valid for residents!
