        No … sports was not in the cards for me. I am dynamite on sports games on Playstation or xbox though. Does that count? It’s okay, I can live with it.

            As usual I’m a little behind due to the time difference and the fact that I have to use the dictionary a lot for the correct spelling! Nevertheless here is my day 3. I enjoyed all your stories very much. Art do you still speak Dutch after all those years? Now to day 4!

              I had all but forgotten this story until this challenge. After a brief and embarrassing dalliance with sports, I focused on a different type of competition.

                I only remember this thanksgiving its the only one in my brain history.  This is my Father he did 3 tours in Vietnam and was upset when he couldn’t do a 4th.  The Man with my father was a news reporter it was my fathers job to keep him alive and show him how things worked in Vietnam.

                I liked this lesson but it was very hard, I had to start over about 10 times.  But I am very proud of my story.

                  Day 4 went very quick, that must be because I hated sports and wanted to finish this layout in n o time.

                        Gerry, As a kid I’m sure this was not a happy day for you when you were young but you sure put humor into it and I got a laugh. Thanks

                            Hello everyone

                            I’m running behind, only had a chance to start this challenge this morning. We have been without internet for several days, so I’m only looking at Day 1 now.  I’ve got my page layout sort of the way I want it but I’m really struggling with getting the text happening.  When I go to the freehand selection tool to shape my text layer there isn’t anything visible for me to select anything else.  I realise it’s something I haven’t done so would love some help. But, here is my layout so far, just waiting for the text.

                              Jean,, I don’t  know if I’m the one to give you advice but if you have 2020 PaintShop pro you should be able to make a selection on the layer you want your text on , I use point to point,  then activate your text tool , click inside your selection and either type your text or as I prefer ,copy and paste your aready typed text from notepad. A text vector layer will be created. You can make changes to your text,size,color,font if you select your text and make the changes. Hope this is helpful. If not you should directly ask Carole. She is always helpful.

                              Good luck,

                              Lynda

                                Thanks Lynda, I sort of think I’ve got that sorted, but my problem is when I’m trying to tell PSP what shape I want the text box, when Carole said to click on the freehand selection tool, then select freehand, I don’t seem to be able to find that freehand bit, my tool options box doesn’t show anything. Hope I’ve explained that sensibly!

                                  Barbara, it is ok if we cannot read the resized version. You can always copy and paste the text in the post for us to read it. The important thing is that it is legible for YOU, in the full-size format, if you choose to print it or display it otherwise. I think only the admin can delete posts.

                                  Shirley, maybe you could make a selection slightly inside the frame you will use so the text is not so close to the edge that we wonder if we are missing something under that frame 🙂

                                  Sandra, never underestimate the swing of a girl passionate about baseball!

                                  Jnet, je me souviens aussi du temps où  les moïses étaient populaires. Il me semble en avoir eu un quand j’étais petite.

                                  Paula, glad to see you join and post. I guess in those days, dad’s were often absent at the birth of their children as it was considered “not really a man’s place”. He got a nice present for Christmas though!

                                  Minka, that story is perfect. The idea of those prompts are to trigger SOME memories and stories loosely related to the theme, and this is definitely related to sports anyways!

                                  Corrie, it is a good thing that the water was not deeper than that. Can you imagine what could have happened if it were!? As for sports, I think it is still an interesting fact that you didn’t like sports! Why not share that!?

                                  Gerry, that is a funny story, at least, now! I am sure it was embarrassing at the time. I am glad this prompt brought back that story to you. It is those tiny anecdotes that make so many family gatherings so interesting!

                                  Cindy, did you play with the Leading setting to make the lines closer together? It sure works for adding more text into the same space instead of making it smaller! Good job.

                                  Lynda, were there players on opposite areas of the “double field”? So two pitches and two hitters almost at the same time?

                                  Jean, Lynda has great explanation. The Freehand selection tool is what we often call the Lasso tool.

                                    Better late than never.  Shows me I cannot control things that I can have PSP time every day!

                                    Great looking projects everyone!

                                      Carole, I understand what the Freehand Selection tool is, but when I select it, so that I can shape the text box around the elements, there are no options in the Tool Options box to select.  When I select a rectangle, the options are there, but they disappear when I select the Freehand Selection tool.  I’m sure it’s just a setting I haven’t found, but I need help.  I know how to just do a rectangle text box.

                                      Thanks, Jean

                                              day 4 sports….I really don’t do sports–my brothers used to say I “threw like a girl”.  The swimmer in the picture is my granddaughter who does do sports.

                                                So many interesting stories people have to tell – snippets of life that often get forgotten until something / someone comes along and jogs our memory.  Thanks for that Carole!

                                                The papers and elements are mine apart from the flower at the top left .. the rest are preset shapes as I couldn’t find anything else in the colours – the centres are a glass button I made but I need to work on my button making!   The story font is Lato, the heading Bauhaus.

                                                Any suggestion as to the best setting to use when resizing please?- smart or bicubic or one of the other options.

                                                      Thanks for your mention of my frames  Carole. I made the selection for the text on both occasions, I didn’t expect the border frame to hang in so close on the left side of the selections, but that is how it turned out. I wasn’t happy with  what happened but I didn’t know what action to take. All the words were in view. Note I have left the border frame off this day 4 project.

                                                        The freehand selection or lasso is under the icon that looks like a square selection. Click on that and you should find the lasso or freehand tool under it. At the top you can choose the selection type, point to point, freehand, etc.

                                                          Carole, yep, as crazy as that is, two games both pitching and hitting at the same time. I guess our adult supervision was lacking. 🙂

                                                            Sorry, I’m running late this week. Showtime is being a pain with some ads we are running for their show at our theater on Wed! Plus, I had a hard time with topic. I did track and field in HS but nothing to write a story about. The topic I ended up doing is my daughter’s risk-taking which involved a dangerous sport! See for yourself..

                                                            UPDATE: Of course I had to tweak it a bit..not sure which one I like better..

                                                                Carole, you got me to thinking because I have never met another “Brimm”. I Googled it and this is the start of what I found. It seems to be a surname mostly. I found businesses and history.

                                                                “Brimm History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

                                                                England
                                                                Brimm is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Gloucestershire, where they held the manor and lands of Breme in the village and parish of that name. It is from the manorial name from which the family name is derived. The name Breme meant fierce, or vigorous.”

                                                                The surname Brimm was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
