    My scrap kit is called BohemianSpirit Bundle from ‘Jumpstart design.  I have had it a very long time and it’s an element kit. The cluster on the right was in the kit also.

    Greetings Everyone!

    I am Diane from Mississippi, USA. I am excited to see and read all the stories!

    Wow, I had to edit my story a lot to fit the quick page but it was fun!

    Also, I am so happy to learn about shaping the text to fit the design. Thank you for the video, Carole.

    Rene Marker–I am a genealogist too. And I have also seen many birth certificates with the time of birth recorded. But it is not on mine, nor is there a place to put it!

    Loving reading the stories!

    Petra (#81434), welcome to the Campus. You get a gold star for being the first one to post your project 🙂 That information about your time of birth and your daughter’s is such a fun factoid. How many people share such a bond!? Glad you shared it.

    Linda (#81438), if you want to use a word processor to start the process, you can certainly do it. And also, if you think of another story, you can keep it in your word processor until you have time to make another page! You might also end up with a totally separate scrapbook page!

    Ann (#81442), it is a good thing that your name spells without an E: it makes you unique since you are the only ANN in the Campus!

    Lynda (#81449) that is interesting that the name was popular at that time for you. When I was born, in the early 60’s, must have been popular in our area because I remember having several friends named Linda.

    Marie-Claire (#81451), that is a fun fact about your time of birth! Too bad it was not on January 1st and be the first baby of the year!

    Jannette (#81453), that is a nice kit you used. Interesting information about the weather. You know, if you want to do these pages in your language, to share with your family and friends, you can do that too (although we surely like to be able to read your story)!

    Diane (#81455), that is certainly a story to remember!!! It reminds me of my second child: the labor progressed too fast and the doctor didn’t make it on time!

    If you have not posted your first page, don’t worry. We’ll wait. As you can see, everyone has some stories to tell, and it is always fun to read everyone else’s.

    Here is my story (and I’m sticking to it, hahaha).  Sorry, it’s wordy, this is why I dont like to journal, I dont edit very well.  I forgot to put my year of birth.  It’s 1965.  I had never used the freehand selection so was happy to see that demo, which I used for the first time here.

    I have read and really enjoyed all your stories.  Ann (without an E!), we have an area in the city (Edmonton) that is called Terwilliger. That area has a monthly newspaper that we printed (I work at a newspaper web press) called Terwilliger Times, I haven’t seen it for a while so not sure it’s still being printed.

    I looked at this a slightly different way. I consider I began when I finally shook free of depression in my 40’s and changed my name.
    The supplies come from a kit in my stash called bt 04-19

    Susan: With my 3 daughters, I now have a 1960, a 1962 and a 1967. So, if (when!) I adopt you; you would slot right in there with my girls. 😉

    Day1-Extra: I used the free mini kit offered by Pixelscrappers this week. (marisa-lerin_51798_autumn-art-mini-kit) I decided to use as much of it as possible, so this layout is rather cluttered. Not my usual style! The “story” was actually part of the kit, also. (Oops, sorry, posted on the wrong page. Moving it to “What are you working on… “

    Hey SUE THOMAS – I too was glad to read your post and find you are in the wilds of Wales! I know there will be so many amazing pix coming home with you. Enjoy every moment. And when you have time, could you teach me how to pronounce the Welsh words?

    Susan,

    I love your story of adoption. It takes me back to my mother’s parents. They had 5 biological children and 5 adopted children. They also hit the jackpot of parents.

    Kudos to your parents

    Day 2 challenge was fun and I made several quick pages. I enjoyed learning about lining up papers in a design with anti-alias. I spent too much time remembering being with my sister on some very fun trips. There are years we share and others we can never talk about…LOL, it’s a sister thing!

    Thank you to Sharon Grant and Janet Scott for the two graphics I used from Pixel Scrapper!ps_commons_sharon-grant_76652_its-a-girl-thing-quick-page-PS_JanetScott_ML_HrtSwrlDdl4

    Cindy what a touching and sad story and I think you can be proud of that name. I’m so sorry to hear you mother ran away without you, maybe she thought that was the best thing she could do for you when she was unable to take care of you herself.

    I’m a bit late in joining but sometimes life happens and there are other pressing matters to attend to. I just have time enough to see and read what lovely and interesting pages are done . Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up.

    Day 1. In all the years of my scrapping, I never told the story of my name. So I did with this layout. I used a retired template from Fiddle-Dee-Dee designs and a kit (Putting Down Roots) from Kim Jensen available at TheLilyPad digital store. I wanted to do a layout in the style I normally use.

    I took the time to figure out how to journal in an odd configuration (which is why I chose this template). I also did more with the warp brush on my shadows on my elements. The “My Name” title is using the KG Makes You Stronger font with a paper as my fill. Then I rasterized it and applied an inner bevel instead of a shadow.

    The stories in this workshop are always fascinating. I look forward to learning more.

    The kit is Evening Sun from Aimee Harrison Designs. The font is Belgium.

    Susan (#81468), it might be wordy, but it is a great story to share.

    Harmony (#81473), that is a very interesting story about your name. I hope Harmony never experienced depression!

    Julie (#81481), you are definitely allowed to be honorary Irish!

    Anne (#81488), do you prefer us to call you Anna-Marie from now on?

    Diane (#81491), I hope you document all those other stories you share with your sister. If nothing else, record your conversations!

    Cindy (#81494), that is a sad story, but it is still a story to be told.

    Pirkko (#81504), too bad you were too young to enjoy the Olympics!!! 🙂

    René (#81509), do you often use that accent on your name? If that story your dad told is not accurate, I wonder why he was so insistent on that name?

    Lynda (#81511), I assume those photos are yours? It is amazing when we still have such old photos on hand!

    Gerry (#81514), I thought you would add a note as to why your name is pronounced the way it is (with a hard G). I am curious.

    Bonnie (#81518), that is hilarious!!!! Maybe we can call you Pickleball too, although you are older!

    It is so much fun to read all your stories (and yes, I read them all, as long as they are in English or French). Keep it up. If you haven’t posted yet, don’t be shy!

    Hi, here I am again. I used a text processor now. I was not finished introducing myself completely so here is the second part. It takes a while as my prototypes turned out to be wrong. I wanted to line it out on the right and line the cluster left but the letters mixed up. So this very morning I started over. So I’m one day behind. Carole no worries about the texts in English I did properly file them so I always can change them and keep the layout. It didn’t work out how I planned it, but it is what it is now.

    A bit later than I actually wanted cause I spent the day with my eldest sister yesterday. So this morning (it’s 12.18pm right now over here) I made my second layout called: Maaike

    Carole, yes I always use the accent when I’m handwriting my name. There is another story about my name that I should do as a companion page to this one now that I think about it!  But when things started being computerized, the accent couldn’t be used since in those days there weren’t all the fancy fonts. And, even using a typewriter, it couldn’t be used. So I transitioned to Rene’. Used the apostrophe behind the e. Even now with some fonts, I cannot use the accent since it isn’t in the font character map. So I mainly use the apostrophe even now… and I had forgotten the code to type the é (had to figure it out).

    As for Dad liking the name, he did probably meet someone with the name when he was in the Navy and really liked it. His ship was in the Mediterranean for a few months before it transitioned to the south Pacific. Oddly enough there were 2 people in my small town with the name in the 50’s. A father and son.

    Hey Carole,

    The B&W photos are family archives. The church and the duplex are internet. I took a photo of the duplex a while back while visiting but I couldn’t find it so that photo is from a real-estate site. After all these years the buildings haven’t changed much. The church is now a “cathedral” instead of a lowly church.  🙂

    I don’t think I’ve ever given the full history of our family business, the Warwick Drive-In Theater. Seeing it posted, it looks readable.
