Story Scrapbook Challenge

So have you ever had to go through old photographs and saw many that were of scenic views and you really didn’t know where it was, why it was taken, what was the significance.  Well my friends I’m putting my hand up.  My grandfather was one of those types of people.  So many photos of where!?  No one knows.   And I bet we all are too in these days of excessive photo taking.  But fear not, I have the challenge for you.

I want you to go through your photos and find one of a scenic view and I want you to tell us the story about why that photo was taken.  Did this vista hold any special significance for you? Were you on holidays?  Is it a place dear to your heart?  Was it where something major happened?  Is it a mountain or the ocean, the beach or lake or paddocks?  Is it somewhere that the family holidayed each year?  Is it a view you see each day?

There was a reason you took that photo, or your relatives took that photo.  I want to marvel at the sight that is special to you.  I want that story behind it. And I want that photograph to be LARGE.  Horizontal or vertical, you choice.   You’ll fit your story there somewhere – journal on the photo, journal on a vellum strip, pin a card to the photo to journal on.  I really hope this challenge sparks something in you and we get to see some amazing sights from around the world.

The creative team have jumped on board with some terrific example pages.  Get ready to armchair travel!!

Lizzie, oh Lizzie, this had me at hello!  The colours of the cloud matched perfectly in your elements.  The elements adding to the page, not detracting from that amazing view, no wonder this is your special place.

So now we move from South Africa to the US where Tammie has shown us a very special place in her heart.  She has been holidaying here for 50 years!  How lucky she is.

Still in the US, Rachael also played along and shows us the view of her favourite season and why.  Such an awesome page, and look at the colour of those leaves.

And finally a trip downunder to my happy place that I try to get to a couple of times a year to hike and climb and just be in that glorious bush.

You know with scenes like these, who needs to be a great photographer, the magic just happens when you point and snap.  I bet you have scenic photos of special places in your lives, I really hope you share with us.
