    This is my original Day 4 but I got sidelined and created the “From Sea to Shining Sea’. I decided to finish this one and I’m wondering how many of you remember this Chevrolet advertisement.  Yeah, I’m old!

    Lynda – I don’t believe it!  I started singing that to my son and daughter-in-law just yesterday!!!!!

    Love your display of the places in this good old USA you’ve been to.  Don’t you just love The Corn Palace – Mitchell, SD is always our stop when visiting relatives in SD.  There’s a great French Restaurant there!  Imagine that in the middle of SD.  And, The Grand Canyon – stupendous!

    I love both your pages, Lynda! Of course I remember the Chevy commercial and your Sea to Shining Sea layout is marvelous, too! What a great way to display vacation and/or travel photos. Great photos, by the way. Your layouts really take advantage of the extra space in a 7200 width. Nice job on the mask for your truck! I also admired the concrete background on Sea to Sea. Great job!

    Laurie, Thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos

    Mary, We must have an ESP connection. Don’t know why but I just started singing that song and it fit..

    Ann, Thank you..I usually walk around camera in hand and I take some weird photos, hence the stone/concrete photo. Comes in handy for backgrounds and other things that need texture.

    Wow, outstanding work, Everyone! …I intend to participate in this Double Take challenge, but then came life… I didn’t finish Day 1 yet! … But, coming here and seeing what everybody did is inspiring and a great joy.

    This is my Day 7 … ready for printing with even borders.  I went with the solid paper background so that the border would be even when halved for printing.  It is day 1 revamped.  Thanks for takin a peek!  🙂

    Ann, I am not really sure why that design disappeared when you resized. I have only seen this happen when text is inside a shape. But I see you found a way around.

    Annie, I bet you would not dare to add that much text on a single layout (re: Day 6)! But on a double page, you have that option! Your pink birds are so cute!

    Barbara, I love how you displayed the hibiscus photos. Is that a ready-made template or did you make that yourself?

    Raymond, out of curiosity, are those birds nesting in winter? I am just wondering why you added snowflakes.

    Lynda, as your garden grows, you will have even more photos to use!! 🙂 Those distorted photos are something I seem to often catch (I think I annoy my co-workers when I point out something like that, but I can’t help myself). Your background photos is great (Day 4)!

    Jnet, you will have to go back to take more pictures, 10+ years later!

    Bonnie, sometimes, it is hard to avoid the middle “cut”. Depending on the photo, it might be acceptable, for example, for a panorama, you can’t do without it, or if it is a smaller photo, you can try to move it so nobody’s face is cut, even if the photo is divided somehow. Also, in some cases, it is possible to get “open flat” books, although, I am not 100% sure how well it lines up.

    Laurie, there are different techniques to display photos and masks are only one of them. You managed a great layout and we won’t know how much time you took.

    Corrie, it is ok to change the beads into flowers. One uses what one has!

    Jean, photobook sites allow users to display photos, but I agree that uploading your completed pages as ONE image will make something much better!

    Gerry, your page reminds me of those old photo albums my grandma had, with all those photo corners! 🙂

    Remember to fill out the survey for this challenge, and let us know if you print your double pages into an album!

    LOL! I sure wouldn’t Carole, nobody would be able to read it … I was pushing it as it was! There are a wealth of beautiful birds from this planet Carole and Australia is just lucky to be home to a great many of them. I would never like to think that I am saying we have the biggest and the best here in the land of Oz because that would not be the case. This planet relies on each and every one for it’s ecology. I happen to adore the Friarbird and if you have ever watched the children’s movie The Dark Crystal you would wonder whether the Skeksis were actually modelled from them, lol! 🙂

    Carole, I looked at it again and I have no idea! I just looked at it as a mask that I liked not giving any thought to it being snowflakes. It never crossed my mind I just looked at it as a design that filled the page! Ha, perhaps I should add another mask! Although this is the 2nd year the bluebirds had eggs by the 24th of March and we did have a few nights where it did get below freezing.

    Nice job Lynda, Laurie, Corrie and Gerry for adding new page. It’s beautiful

    Ann Seeber, it’s nice to have put the translation for me. I had caught the bad weather but not for the number of guests and the witness. Fortunately the marriage was celebrated

    Carole, Oh! how I would like to go back. We are traveling by plane now, the motorhome required too many repairs on the way back. We clean it to travel to Canada 😉

    I do not print my pages and in your last email I rediscovered how to separate my pages once they’re done. I worked with the double page that I was separating but not the right way. Thanks for that and thanks for this new double page challenge that I liked.

    Lynda: So sorry for your loss. 🙁  Your layout is lots of fun. A memorable time, I’m sure. I lost two grandchildren myself, so I feel for you. ((hug))

    Lynda, despite the tragedy the photos of that family gadering looks great.

    At the start of this challenge I thought that there would be 7 days of making double pages, but in the end it were 6. I had the feeling that  there was an open end to my project, so I made one  page extra. Now I can make a book with this project and some more including the Love Challenge.

    Thanks Ann and Corrie.

    Corrie, your spring/summer layout is outstanding. Beautiful photos

    Annie, your birds are also outstanding. I can’t keep up with all of you  🙂

    Day 5- Panorama

    The panorama is created from photos I took on a trip to Lego Land.  They have built the whole city with legos. It’s amazing. The photos along the bottom are just a very few of the photos I’ve taken over the years while exploring Chicago.

    Hi Scrapbook Campus. Just wanted to say that I have viewed some excellent work during this challenge and if I haven’t commented or responded in anyway it would be because there is just too much going on here … love it! I sure don’t envy Carole’s job of commenting on each and everyone and she does it so beautifully. Such a wonderful Campus, thank you my friends for the joy you have put in my life. 😀

    Annie,

    Totally agree with you..hard to comment on all the wonderful work and I don’t envy Carole’s job either. It takes stamina and dedication.

    I didn’t get to do the double take as planned as other things got in the way, and I wasn’t very well last week. Yesterday I looked at Day 1 and  I aim to continue present challenges with the scrapbook I am doing for No 2 daughter. The photos I had prepared didn’t sit right for the template used, so I searched for more suitable ones, coming up with the ones I have chosen.  I really needed the catch up on converting templates to masks and enjoyed following the tutorial. It has been quite a job trying to make old photos presentable.

    What wonderful work from all. Had fun looking. Lynda … an awesome retrospect of your family and one can tell that it was made with an abundance of love. I hope you have had more opportunities to all get together … or will have. Of course the past year and a half probably not so much. All the posts were great! Corrie, I loved your flowers, too! I am not home … and just have a little laptop with me so not much to play with … but at least it allows me to peek at everyone else’s efforts. Probably see some of you tomorrow night. Have a great weekend everyone.
