Story Scrapbook Challenge

Conversations!  Hey people are doing the story telling for you, this one should be easy, right?  We all have them, conversations that is, but there are some that stick in your mind long after the words have been uttered.

Have you been given some words of wisdom that have stuck with you and you live by?  Is there a conversation you recall where the words are imprinted on your heart?  Have words been uttered in haste and anger?  Is there a cherished moment from a child where the innocence of what they have said just makes you melt?

Perhaps words from the Bible that flow deep for you.  Conversations in prayer.  Conversations over the dinner table.  Do you have a speech from a wedding you might like to relate, what an awesome page that would make.

Are there conversations you wish you had had with relatives long since passed, maybe have that conversation now.

And when all else fails go to trust FB and there’s stories everywhere.  That’s where I get a lot of my fodder from for the grandchildren’s albums.  Or open your phone and grab a text conversation with someone.  I’m sure you’ll have some pearlers that are worthy of creating a page for.

The creative team have jumped on board with some terrific example pages:

So excited that Guest CT Shannon played along.  How very special, father and son time.  I guess what happens on the hike stays on the hike, but I bet these two have solved the problems of the world with the conversations they have had.

Another of our Guest CT members Grace, has created a page that is so worth remembering, her son’s first words and then later his appreciation for spending some quality gym time together.  I love it.
