Cassel, It doesn’t really matter to me, I have gone by a nickname all my life but don’t like to shear it on most sights, (I may post it here for some project though) so I answer to just about any of them.August 24, 2022 at 11:45 am #81547Anne LampParticipant
I am running a little behind too. Here is my Day 2August 24, 2022 at 12:39 pm #81549
Day 2. I had font issues using the provided template and even after starting over when I figured out the problem, I ended up with a corrupted file and neither of my PSP versions would open it. I did find and was able to get a version of the file with papers only. (And, yes I had been saving it throughout the process. The final save of the file didn’t work and corrupted the file). I lost all of my journaling and shadowing. So 4 hours in, I started over using a template from Scrapping With Liz (Recyclables 44 available at The LilyPad) and a retired kit by Bella Gypsy called Kaleidoscope. And, I actually like the final version better than the first version so I guess that is a win!
I again used the warp brush on element shadows. I use Forte font filled with a paper from the kit for my title and again used an inner bevel instead of a drop shadow. I am finding I really like that effect for titles.August 24, 2022 at 12:41 pm #81551
Hi, here is another one. I can get enough of it. It is in parts too. I’m in the photo in the mid of my baby brother and my older sister.August 24, 2022 at 12:49 pm #81552
That happens to me all the time Rene, I messed it up and when I start over again it turned out to be better.August 24, 2022 at 2:54 pm #81555Harmony BirchParticipant
Ok so here is my day 2, I used one of the many kits from my stash and elements from various placesAugust 24, 2022 at 3:37 pm #81557
Jannette I very rarely have problems like I had yesterday. And, in all of my years scrapping, I’ve never started a layout over. But the template issues just frustrated the heck out of me yesterday. I finally figured out what the problem was and checked today’s downloads before I even started a layout so that I don’t have the same problem. Success today!
Day 3. I was not a child that got into trouble. The first 3 prompts just don’t apply to me and if I did something as a child I have no memory of it! I had to think awhile but did come up with a trick my dad played on a younger cousin. I was 18 and helped to get things together for the trick so I went with it for my layout. I used a kit by Traci Reed at Sweet Shoppe Designs (I’m With The Band) for my papers and elements. I did use the title tutorial as well. I used the Cooper Black font for it.August 24, 2022 at 4:06 pm #81560Corrie KinkelParticipant
Finally I have something to show. I did the Story Time Challenge, as it was called then, two years ago and I will not repeat the stories I told, so I’m going another route and will tell you more about myself. I probably will use the extra templates for the Diamond members but maybe I will have to turn to the quickpages if I really run out of time. I said before that there is so much going on here at the moment, good and bad that I find it difficult to concentrate on this workshop when time allows me to do so.
This is the story of how I came to love photography and I used the day 1a template with a kit called Golden Hour from cpjes with one of my own photos as a background. The camera came from my stash and the font is Perfect Script. And now up to day 2.August 24, 2022 at 6:22 pm #81576Susan EwartParticipant
Here is my Day two Story Time page. I used mostly elements from Digital Scrapbook “At the Fair” bundle from Sept 2014. The fonts are Algerian (1972) and Gill Sans Ultra Bold. My win today was remembering how to use the freehand selection without having to watch the video again. I’ll take the small wins, they will add up to a big win one day. What’s that saying…Save your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.
I am really enjoying reading everyone’s stories. I laugh along with the funny ones, want to to reach out and hug you with the sad ones and am generally amazing at all your life stories. You are an immensely interesting bunch that I’m glad to be a part of. I look forward to reading them tonight when I get home from work.
Forgot to add: this is a really busy page for me. Wonder if it will grow on me.

When I realized that today is the 30th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, I thought back to the events before and after. We had no idea what was about to happen.
For the record, I was not at a “hurricane party.” I dragged a rocking chair into the kitchen, which didn’t have windows, with my cat in her carrier.
Carole: The gremlin problem returned. I was getting an error message about vector incompatibility while trying to save in pspimage format. I am working in PSP 2023. When I checked the compatibility for saving, it defaulted to PSP compatible, which is actually not an option when setting it manually. I reset it to 2022, and the problem was resolved.August 24, 2022 at 7:11 pm #81582Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Day 2, Celebrations. I created the title using Day 3’s lesson.

Gerry, that’s a powerful recollection of a real catastrophe. Too frightening to even consider!August 24, 2022 at 8:24 pm #81589Marie-ClaireParticipant
Here is day 2.
I followed the tutorial ‘knitting’ in the Lab to make the background. The playing card with the picture is a free template from Carole, and for the ric rac ribbon I also used a script from Carole.
The elements come from PNGWing. The blue background is made with a free overlay and I made the background with the text on it myself.
So many beautiful pages and stories have already been posted, too many to comment for me, but I read them all!

So here goes with my day 3, as a child I rarely got into mishied, I didn’t dare, however I never could resist the lure of a tree.August 24, 2022 at 9:39 pm #81596Raquel BigbyParticipant
This is my first post, Day 1. I been haven’t used PSP for sometime so I have forgotten so much.
Everyone post are fabulous and so much fun reading them.August 24, 2022 at 9:51 pm #81598Diane LochalaParticipant
Happy Day 3 challenge, Win or lose, Mischief! I love reading all the stories. Some are sad and others are fun.
I wrote about a teen movie night with friends. I cannot believe we did not fear walking downtown at midnight, but those were simpler times in a small town.
I made the heading using the Day 3 challenge, one layer of text,
Beveled, and with shadow; the paper is a jpeg of a fabric swatch, free clipart, and png filesAugust 24, 2022 at 10:03 pm #81600Anonymous
for day 2August 25, 2022 at 12:15 am #81606CasselKeymaster
Jannette (#81534), you can make the story as long as you want, and yes, you can do that in two or three pages if you want. (#81551) Yes, we can guess the rest! 🙂
Petra (#81540), who is Maaike? Is she your daughter?
René (#81541), that is a clever way to add the accent when you don’t have it! (#81549) Great family tradition story. (#81557) That is certainly a fun story to tell even if it is not really mischief!
Ann (#81544), it is fun to read the whole story. We all know now!
Anne (#81547), reading the story, I thought they would put the child in the middle to pretend it was baby Jesus. At least, that is what I picture in my head reading that! (do you have any of those pictures?)
Harmony (#81555), it is true that funerals are often the rare opportunities to see relatives living far away. It is great to take that event and make it a happy one. It is usually sad that the person has left, but yes, so many stories are then retold. (#81594) Cute story. If that tree could talk, right?
Corrie (#81560), that explains the nice photos you are sharing!
Susan (#81576), those amusement parks can leave an impression! I remember Expo 67, La Ronde, and some of its rides. I was 6. Maybe I should write that story too!
Gerry (#81581), did your place sustain much damage during the hurricane?
Bonnie (#81582), you should add the year to your story. Playing pickleball is not very specific in that regard! 😉
Marie-Claire (#81589), one little trick: when using lined paper, adjust the Leading value and tweak it so the line spacing will match the lined paper.
Raquel (#81596), that is quite an interesting reason for an unusual spelling (for the time), but I am sure nobody has a hard time pronouncing it now!
Diane (#81598), oh my! I can just imagine your face when you came back to your room!
Pirkko (#81600), there was a Vic-10? I still have a Vic-20 downstairs. My husband is trying to make it work but it does not display well on the old (very old) TV he got for it!
I LOVE reading all those stories. Did anyone think they had no interesting stories to tell? I hope you changed your mind because everything is worth reading. Keep them up. We still have four more days!August 25, 2022 at 6:48 am #81621
Here is the second part. I could not do anything else that give it a black/white layout.August 25, 2022 at 8:35 am #81622Petra NuijtenParticipant
Yes Carole, Maaike is my daughter.August 25, 2022 at 8:41 am #81624Petra NuijtenParticipant
Oh my, I have lots of funny stories about my time in school. This one about cheating on a test came to mind right away. #day3August 25, 2022 at 9:48 am #81626Corrie KinkelParticipant
Template for Day 2b and I so much like the new templates! It doesn’t feel I’m repeating myself for this workshop. I tell the story of my hamsters and for the papers I used a freebie by Creative Fabrica from 2 days ago called RetroLinnen. The photo comes from the internet because I don’t have one of my own hamsters and the other embellishmments are from digitalscrapbooking.com. The font is a layered font called Groovy Yellow.
I like to read all the happy, funny and sad stories and see the layouts that are all different, even by using the same templates! So well done everybody.August 25, 2022 at 10:07 am #81627cindy harrisParticipant
Corrie your the sweetest and your good at story telling, nice page look to. All you guys are artists I think, always
enjoy seeing your pages and hoping I get good somtime. 🙂August 25, 2022 at 11:36 am #81634Anonymous
Thanks Corrie thank you for your touching memoryAugust 25, 2022 at 1:24 pm #81642
the glass of champagne we got for free from the tour operator. He had asked us what we were going to do in Paris. We answered him that we celebrate our wedding anniversary. Both two of us. Arrived at the hotel he ordered to bring us the champagne. In July we did it over together with our children.August 25, 2022 at 1:35 pm #81644Ann SeeberParticipant
Monticello Raceway is nearby, just north of us in Sullivan County, NY. All the photos are from a Google search, except for the class photo of Laurey when she was 16 and had finally shed her braces. The title is done with a pair of fonts that you combine the top (USA Nation Stars) and the bottom (USA Nation Line) with patriotic colors.
This story is famous in our family, and I intend to embarrass Laurey with this layout on Sept 14th, which will be her 60th birthday! (This is how to make ME feel old!) 😉August 25, 2022 at 1:44 pm #81645
I can’t respond to all your stories, but believe me, I enjoy this theme. Thank you, Carole. And keep on writing to all of you. I see now people behind your portraits.August 25, 2022 at 1:50 pm #81647
Day 4 Sports. I had to dig deep to think of something for this one. I was not and still am not athletic. And, when I was growing up girls participating in organized sports was not a thing in my small town. Even in high school in the early 70’s, the girls who did play basketball and volleyball were only playing in intramural sports. But there was a different type of sport that I could participate in. Bowling.
Kit is Bowl-O-Rama by Kirsten Aagard and is available at TheLilyPad.August 25, 2022 at 2:58 pm #81656Susan EwartParticipant
Day 3 Story Time. My dirty little secret and my life (short life) of crime. I was never incarcerated (grounded) though. Whew!
I see some new layouts and cant wait to come back and read them.
Fonts used are Arial Rounded (journaling) and Arissa Typeface, that I scuffed up more with the eraser. Cogwheels are mine for Lab 5-12 (I believe). Background papers from Digital Scrapbook, except the red which is a flood filled layer. the red-yellow circle is a flood filled gradient representing my journey back to being a good girl. ?
oops, I see all kinds of grammar errors and wrong works used. Funny how you can read something over and over and still not see it until you post it. Now, “that’s” a crime!August 25, 2022 at 5:16 pm #81662Gerry LandrethParticipant
I just realized that I used Day 4’s alternate template for the Day 3 assignment. Although it is clearly marked, it wasn’t until I read Susan’s comments that it finally caught my eye.
Carole: Thanks for asking about the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The worst damage was about 15 miles to the south of where I lived. That is where the iconic photos of blocks willed with flattened homes were taken. We had roof damage. Trees were downed, on cars and in living rooms. It was a mess that is still not completely cleaned up after 30 years.
