Flashback Friday 3.26 Sluething

This week's challenge is actually 2 weeks ago challenge. It's make up time on FBF. Not that I meant to miss it, but I had a digi lo going on and lo and behold it didn't save and I had it completed all the way but the journaling (whining uncontrollably). lol. So..... I started over and did a regular page, because they don't disappear unless the dog eats it, and my Laverne is well fed. bwahaha! Back on track - the challenge was to do a lo about your favorite books or TV shows. While I liked TV, I LOVED LOVED LOVED to read. And Nancy Drew was my all time favorite hands down. I could lay around ALL DAY reading until someone made me get up and actually do something. My parents were soooooooooooo mean. bwahahaha! I'm still that way to this day, a book sends me into my own little world and short of an atomic blast, I hear, see and know nothing. lmao........

I downloaded some pictures of books that I read, not necessarily in order. Recollections 8.5x11 cardstock (so I didn't have to whack down my bazzill), My Mind's Eye, QK dragonfly, the ever present primas & bling, a vellum tag-MM I think, and M's and bazzill ribbon.

journaling: Nancy and I went on a lot of adventures together, solved mysteries, met new people and visited foreign countries. I accumulated and read ALL her books (don’t know what happened to them, hmmm....a mystery). Nancy had high standards, that looking back were impossible, because she excelled at everything. Of course she had morals, ethics and lots of courage. Not a bad example, really. Even though I knew I could never live up to the standard she was, didn’t stop me from trying. I found my talents were just a bit different from Nancy’s which made it all the more fun reading because well its fiction. And fiction rocks!

Flashback Friday 3.19 Another Day to Remember

The challenge was to do a time capsule on the day you were born. I used dMarie one stop shopping which has a ton of info. I went for the collagey look and ended up looking like I threw everything on there. I did use my stash of My Mind's Eye 29th St Market. Possiblities (clock), 7 Gypsies (hands on clock), QK file folder (who knew) Unknown bag and envelope. Really Primas (natch) & Horizon bling. I used Gesso and gingerbread ink to muss it up. While I'm not really happy I'm glad its done. AND it'll probably grow on me. Really. I had a vision and it seemed to collide w/a train somewhere along the line. lol. It happens. Life is still good. and A page DONE is a page done. TFL...

Flashback Friday 3.5 "Thank God"

This week's challenge was to write a thank you to someone who affected your life. Honestly, I couldn't just choose ONE. So I picked THE ONE. He has the plan. I dug deep in my stash for this beautiful Collage Press paper. Whacked it down to 8.5 x 11. Love that size too. The Qk Magnolia is so yummy and fills out the space, along with the flower and heart. Some of April's lace that I found stashed in a glass jar (probably the last of it - hint hint Miss April - lol). And the label thingy from Memory Makers. Prima of course and 7 gypsies. tfl!
