First of all, come and say HI if once you register for this workshop.
We want to know who else will be there, on our side to cheer us up.
Remember that it is NOT a contest. It is a friendly workshop to get you to do something you might not have thought of doing before.
Once the Workshop is started, on August 22nd, you can post your pages, and your stories here (if it is too small to read, you can always copy and paste the text, if you want).
Remember to resize your image to about 600 pixels before uploading it so it won’t slow down the site when we have lots of your masterpieces.
The workshop will include prompts and downloadable templates (for you to be creative) and quick-pages (if you are in a hurry). Although the same seven templates/quick-pages will be used as in two years ago, there will also be some additional supplies for our DIAMOND members.
If you found this thread without seeing the registration page, you can go back and register (remember, it is FREE).
And bring a friend over!August 13, 2022 at 10:41 pm #80854PirkkoParticipant
I’m ready 🙂August 13, 2022 at 11:18 pm #80855Bonnie BallentineParticipant
I’m registered. I don’t like to journal…this will be good for me. I managed to complete the assignments last time…August 14, 2022 at 2:27 am #80877Susan EwartParticipant
I just signed up too. I also do not like to journal, this will be a challenge that I hope I am up for. I don’t really think I have any interesting stories to tell. I have never done this workshop before.August 14, 2022 at 3:49 am #80878
I’m here, also. I think I may have done this two years ago. I have some old layouts that have a LOT of journaling and, to me, are not very appealing. Hopefully, this time, I can do better.
Bonnie: I was surprised to tune into CBS-TV just after 5pm last night (8/13) and find a Pickleball Championship! Considering that’s “prime-time sports” I’m wondering if that’s new programing? Your sport is getting more visible! Did your league compete?
Carole/Cassel: I see an overlap with QP on the 21st?

I do not entirely understand the intent of this workshop. What’s the goal of it? Can anyone tell? 😵August 14, 2022 at 8:59 am #80886CristinaParticipant
I just registered for this workshop, although journaling is definitely not my forte.
I will be away during that time, but I will have the material to do at a later time. This workshop will probably help me to start adding more journaling to the layouts besides dates and places.August 14, 2022 at 9:09 am #80887Sue ThomasParticipant
I have also registered. Like Cristina I’m also away. Back home in Wales until the end of October. I have my old laptop with me, so hopefully I will find some time to participate, if not I will do it at a later date. I often add Journaling, not reams of it. Sometimes a lot, others times not so much, depends on the project and the info it requires. II did this challenge 2yrs ago.August 14, 2022 at 9:46 am #80888
Jannette, the goal of this workshop is to create scrapbook pages without focussing on photos, but to practice sharing more of the stories we have in mind. As others have mentioned, scrapbookers are not always adding much journaling, if at all, so this is a little twist on scrapbooking. We often think that we don’t have anything interesting to tell, but we are always wrong. And we will have fun reading everyone’s stories later on!August 14, 2022 at 10:55 am #80893Rene MarkerParticipant
I love to tell the stories! That is why I got into scrapbooking over 20 years ago (although then it was with paper). I was taught that it is very important to tell the story behind the photo in a way that anyone can look at the page and understand what is going on (without you being there to tell them). Granted at times not a lot is known but it is important to at least note the “Who What When Where and Why” if you know any of them.
Carole, do we have to use the templates and quick pages you provide or can we use what we already have? I was looking through the 2020 class thread and wondered if the same prompts will be used or are you changing them up? I do have some things I have never documented that would work for a couple of them, just would have to find the photos!August 14, 2022 at 11:10 am #80894Jannette Nieuwboer-DonsParticipant
Owww, that’s nice. 😋 I’m in.
Oops, I read 7 days in a row. WOW. I hope I can keep up the tempo.

Yes, Rene. The prompts will be the same, however, a single prompt (since they are generic) can trigger many different stories. There are going to be quick-pages and templates (and extra ones for DIAMOND members). You are encouraged to use those but if you use something else, just make it clear so others are not going to be looking for those supplies. And photos are totally optional.August 14, 2022 at 11:55 am #80904Marie-ClaireParticipant
I don’t like journaling either, but I’m signing up anyway, because I haven’t done this workshop yet. I’m afraid I don’t have much to say, but I want to try, and I’m sure I’ll learn something anyway…and just because it’s always fun to participate, and admire the results from all of you!August 14, 2022 at 12:08 pm #80908Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Ann…yesterday was the first nationwide telecast for pickleball. It has been featured a couple of times on tennis channel and a couple of other channels but this is the first time for nationwide…a historical moment for pickleball. The matches you saw were for the pros; however, almost all tournaments have amatures playing also…far away from the spotlight. I was not there but I watched on TV. I was in Maryland this weekend for the Maryland Senior Games. Did you enjoy watching pickleball? We seniors play the same as the pros but much slower and less skill.August 14, 2022 at 12:23 pm #80910Mary SolaasParticipant
OK, I’m registered. Like Sue and Cristina, I am going to be out of town before this workshop is finished, but, I, too, am planning to complete it at a later date.
Thanks, Carole, for all you do!August 14, 2022 at 1:16 pm #80920
Bonnie-Pickleball looks like fun. I played a little tennis back in the day, but my back wouldn’t allow it now. Nice to see something new!August 14, 2022 at 4:55 pm #80947SharlaParticipant
I’ve signed up – looking forward to it.August 14, 2022 at 5:37 pm #80950Corrie KinkelParticipant
Sue I was missing you and that had me worried a little bit, but now I’m so delighted for you to be finally back in Wales. I hope you will have a fantastic stay there and enjoy your family and more especially your grandkids. I can tell you from experience it is great!!!
I have done this 2 years ago but I think it will be a good rehearsal for me because, like the most of you, I have some trouble journaling. I’m glad there are some extras for the diamond members too, I have come to like that because then I don’t have to redo the ones I already did, this makes it more interesting. Carole thank you for that.August 14, 2022 at 5:53 pm #80952Sue ThomasParticipant
Corrie, thank you. I’m having a blast in Haverfordwest, West Wales. The weather is fantastic. Next week, I’ll be traveling to Cornwall to finally meet Merryn. It’s quite a trek from West Wales. Meanwhile, I’m having fun with my daughter, riding the horses on the beaches, hiking the Wales coast path (WCP). Llwybr Arfordir Cymru while inhaling all that Welsh sea air. I hope to participate, if I’m not to tired by the end of the day.August 14, 2022 at 7:26 pm #80956Linda J WalkerParticipant
Signed up. I think I have stories, but don’t realize that I do? If that makes sense.
With both of my parents deceased now, and cousins who have passed, I am quickly becoming the ‘older generation’. I should record what I remember/know now.August 14, 2022 at 8:09 pm #80961
Linda, YES, you have tons of stories. I bet if we sat together for chat, you could tell me stories about yourself, your family, your friends, for the WHOLE day, and you would still have more to tell. It is just like when we sit with family, and someone tells a story about uncle Henry. Then, that will make you think of your cousin Suzan, and then your grandmother, and then the neighbour, and so on.
Record your stories with audio, in a notebook, etc. Any way you want. That is the whole point of my book, Remember when…?August 22, 2022 at 11:25 am #81434Petra NuijtenParticipant
Okay, so I’ve been working on my journal layout with the title: My date of birth.August 22, 2022 at 11:52 am #81435Susan EwartParticipant
I thought I signed up but no email this morning. I must not have. oopsAugust 22, 2022 at 12:08 pm #81436
Susan, yes, you are registered. Can you check your spam folder or even the deleted folder? If you still have nothing, drop me an email and I’ll send you a copy.August 22, 2022 at 12:22 pm #81438Linda J WalkerParticipant
It takes me time to figure out what to write! Maybe I should use my word processing program to figure that out, and copy and paste. And now I see typos too!
I regret not asking my parents the time I was born. I have an older brother and 2 older sisters, maybe I can ask them, but I doubt they would know. I could ask Aunt Jean, but she has dementia, so I don’t know if she would be able to help me 🙁August 22, 2022 at 12:35 pm #81442
Here’s My Story. My dad was a railroad man born in 1892.August 22, 2022 at 4:03 pm #81445Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Love this “Annie” So sweet
LyndaAugust 22, 2022 at 4:14 pm #81447Rene MarkerParticipant
Linda Walker Any chance you have your birth certificate? Most of those that I have seen have the time of birth on them and I’ve seen a lot since I researched genealogy in the past. Even mine has a time and it’s “old”.August 22, 2022 at 4:24 pm #81449Lynda DiGregorParticipant
I used Carole’s WordFrame script as well as her ribbon script and flower script. The flower paper is from Creative FabricaAugust 22, 2022 at 6:09 pm #81451
