    Thank you all for your stories. A different view as only faces and projects. Here is my last.

    Thanks for all the good wishes and yes I will do my rehab faithfully, or at least as good as I can.

    On the challenge two years ago I talked about my fear for lighting, but I’m sorry that was my only big fear I can think of. So I tell a story that is related to fear and again about a movie. I used template 6b and the papers are from  the Practical Scrapper in the July 2022 Blogtrain. The filmposter and the pistol are from internet; the cluster and gallows silhoutte are from digitalscrapbook.com

    Just got to finish (more or less) Day 4, the sports themed layout. Something went wrong with one word in the text, and I didn’t have the energy to fix it. Maybe another time…..

    Oh Rene! I had to smile at your Wizard of Oz story. When I was very young, I was terrified by Disney’s Fantasia. Years later, when I watched it, I could understand why a child might be shaken by it. But I was able to watch it again.

    Jannette,

    I found your story prophetic. Very nice

    Corrie, Best wishes on your recovery after surgery. It can take a while, but the rehabilitation exercises will help the healing. I hated the orthopedic strengthening exercises after my knee replacement, but they really made a difference in my ability to walk and hike again.

    The theme of our workshop today helped me remember some friendships from school. I wrote about a friend from my elementary school days, maybe in grade three. It is sad to see a child being laughed at or excluded on the playground at school and I wrote of my memory of Dovie.

    I used the complimentary design from the workshop, some free clipart, and ps_commons_melissa-harris_266187_bubbles_pu.   It has been fun and I have learned many helpful tools!

    Rene,

    I understand your fear of The Wizard of Oz! The fear and excitement of watching the Wizard of Oz was an annual movie night in our home. Mom said it was the first movie she ever watched, so it became our fun once-a-year fear fest!

    Julie,

    I smiled as I read your story about getting into your aunt’s lipstick. I can imagine how fun and then shocking it would have been!

    Gerry,

    Best thoughts and wishes to you during this stage with your mom. I understand how hard this path is to walk but these days are precious. Have you recorded some of her stories as she tells them? I would record my mom as she would tell of her memories but wish I had recorded more.

    Gerry – I’m with you, I have a great dislike for snakes!

    Bonnie – My story would be ‘3 dead copperheads’, unless my husband was around. He likes to rescue the snakes, I prefer to take a shovel to them.

    Susan – My childhood dentist was also a smoker, I feel your pain. I’m glad dentists wear gloves these days!

    Ann (#81839), I can see that poster being pretty scary!

    Diane (#81842), that definitely counts as a fear. At least, it is a story to share! (#81894) So thoughtful. Isn’t it nice to remember those “minor” stories, that still deserve to be told? We are certainly happy to read those!

    Pirkko (#81844), I guess you were ahead of many and ready for the pandemic as it has been quite popular apparently! (#81861) I used to also be afraid of lightning (my mom was), but now, I love them. I taught my kids to enjoy the show while being safe.

    Gerry (#81847), a few years ago, my son decided to get some ball pythons and due to some unforeseen circumstances, had to leave his thirteen pythons at our house. I had NO CLUE how to care for them, and although I was not really scared, I was definitely uneasy. I managed to find someone to take them a foster home. My colleague is like you and is terrified. When I told her about the thirteen snakes at my house, she said she never wanted to visit me anymore… just in case!

    Bonnie (#81855), I guess it was best for you to not act afraid, but calm and composed.

    Jannette (#81858), it is hard when you are a kid as anything CAN be scary, even your own shadow! (#81880) I wish everyone would consider such disagreements behind them as we are so much more similar than different.

    Susan (#81859), smell and taste have a very long-lasting memory and I can just imagine that taste/smell! But in addition, who REALLY likes going to the dentist in the first place?

    Marie-Claire (#81869), spontaneously, we would use the arrows to change the settings, and the change is always too much, by default. Now, you might play with that setting more.

    Lynda (#81871), I am sure an almost perfect game is almost as hard to get as a perfect one! You deserved a t-shirt! (#81875) It would have made for a nice picture… no taste!

    Corrie (#81884), that is exactly what I do when I watch a movie that is somewhat frightening (I don’t like those movies): I try to rationalize “how they did that?”

    Julie (#81887), some other people will say that when you are not good at sports, you only have arts or music left. You were the other way around!

    Even if you have not finished, please continue. There are so many stories we can tell. We can each fill a whole album of stories, at the very least. Let’s keep sharing those, whether for ourselves, our family, or everyone else in this community!

    Hai ladies,

    I’m far behind with my layouts…I know, but it was a very busy weekend: Birthdays, family and friends. This workshop was on the to-do list but I ran out of time. #oops

    Diane,

    I love your story of Dovie. I’m sure she appreciated you and will ever think of you with great fondness. I love champions of the underdog.

    Rene,

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that was scared by the Wizard of Oz. Now it seems silly but then my Mom left me to watch the film with my sisters. She came back somewhere around the witch scenes and had to take be out of the theater for all the screaming and crying. Now it’s one of my favorites, not so much then.

    Here is my food page. This is one story that I could create at least one more page.

    One page to go…then on to Q page for the alpha book.

    I used papers from Pixel Scrapper…For The Love Of Chocolate by Sharon-Dewi Stolp.

    Thank you, Lynda, many stories came back, but we must make choices and what you are writing about. What about the prophetic part? I am not aware of being one.🤔 I’m a Bible teacher that’s all, nothing more. 😍

    Bonnie, I think your mom’s chocolate bolls are delicious, here they are made of puff dough and filled with fresh cream. I like those so much. So now and then I eat a chocolate muffin for a breakfast too or lunch. but only occasionally. Not even every month. So I can say seldom. I nicknamed you Volley Bolly Ballentine.

    Rene, I.m a genealogist as well. It’s odd that in an original file not everything is written. I agree with you. But some clerks are rather easy. Might be there is another file for example a church file or a single mom file. My experience is that the more files you can find of someone the more information you have about them. Greetz.

    Day 7 and finished! The story about being good is already told in the previous challenge and I really didn’t know what to write about, but being nice to a little dog will fit in I think. So my layout is all about dogs and the supplies come from many different sources and some of them I adapted for this story, I used blend modes, overlays, metal leters on the name tag and I placed a photo of my little friend in a round tag. Way back when I started scrapbooking I tried to do just that and had to try many times before I had a more or less acceptable tag. But this time round it went smoothly, so I obviously learned a lot from Carole and the Campus.

    Playing catchup, as with many of my stories this is not about my childhood, but rathr about 35 years ago in my mid 20-s when I was homeless due to walking away from a violent relationship with my 2 very young children and what I could carry on a pram.

    Petra (#81900), don’t worry about being behind. You can always continue.

    Gerry (#81908), friendship through the years!

    Lynda (#81912), I guess it is a good thing that it was just a one-time event.

    Jannette (#81915), you might want to make a double-page with the photo you are talking about. You can check today’s blog post HERE.

    Bonnie (#81917), can I get a piece? I am hungry now! (#81922) That was nice. Too bad she could no longer continue playing with you!

    Corrie (#81924), that story of Koko made me smile. I can just visualize the scene.

    Harmony (#81927), even if it is not a childhood story, it is still a meaningful one.

    During this Workshop, I really felt like we were all sitting around the living room, each telling stories all night long. Doesn’t that feel like that to you? Let’s keep going. All those stories can be more pages for you to make in the future.

    Wow Harmony, you are braver soul than I ever could be.  My stomach is turned just seeing you hanging off that building.

    Here is my Day 7.  The image is the poster for the show.  It looks great on my screen but it’s a small image so doesn’t look to good here.  I would translate if I could but I don’t read French.  the funny thing was the director of the gallery wanted me to bring stuff in for sale in the gallery shop.  I needed to be a member and all I needed to qualify as “French” is I had to be able to recite 7 sentences in French… I’m still working on it.  It is a French gallery in the French Quarter of Edmonton, Alberta.

    Carole: on the shadowing of the swirl look at the skinny parts.  Is that shadowing okay or should I have pushed it up so it touches the swirl?

    Thank you Susan.

    So here’s my day 7, something that is important to me, doing my bit, walking the walk. The world only changes when we get off our behinds and act. I was torn here wether to do a story about protest and activism or vollunteering, in the end I went for volunteering. The photo for the record is a general homeless shelter phot from the internet, not one of the CCHP guests as for privacy purposes we do not photograph the guests.
