Lots of LOADs- #21-#25

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Got a little off track this week but I am all caught up now.  Darn that real life!  Some of the LOAD prompts I did not follow.  I am only using photos that I have already printed, so if I don't have one that fits the prompt, I have to do something else.

Starting with today's LOAD #25 prompt: I feel like I am...not going there today.  I will do that another time.  I know i could keep it really light and finish it with something like 'lucky', but nope, just not doing this one today.  So, again, i went to my handy little pile and chose some fun photos of DH and YDS.  I have had these photos marked for a LO I wanted to do for Scrapbookers Anonymous letter 'G' challenge. I used Green Doodlebug background paper, Green and Brown Glimmer Mist on some of the Jenni Bowlin chipboard banner pieces, Green twine, Glitter, by Stickles outlines the banner, Green Colorbox ink around the PP and to color some of the chipboard banner pieces, and finally 5 'G' words (goofy, grinning, giggling, glasses wearing guys)  using Green CC tiny type letters and more Green ink on the stamps.  A little MME die cut PP cut in half and journal tag, done.  The sketch is adapted from SBE 10/10 pg46

LOAD #21:My Hometown. I didn't have anything I wanted to use for this...right now anyway.  I can think if some places I used to frequent, but I'll save that idea for another time.  I interpreted it with a bunch of menus I kept from our favorites restarts in Chicago.  I made a pocket with a MME die cut paper, used adhesive and a few extra stitches, added a Scenic Route die cut, some CC tiny type letters my own "recipe card" and I am finished.  I will tuck in the menus when I put the page in a protector.
LOAD #22: Holidays. This was a fun one and it really is also for Club CK Issue Challenge #9.  Hanukkah was always a huge daily celebration.  There was one day when the whole family wold gather at either our house or at Nani and Momo's.  the gift pile was out of control.  Momo handed out the gifts one at a time.  Somehow, but then end of the pile, Momo was wearing some sort of ribbon "hat" on his head.  I had to keep this simple because I used 10 old discolored photos. I rotated the design from the left page to the right and balanced it by added 2 paper strips; one for the title, the other for the journaling.  I added below to brighten it up.  
LOAD #23: Road Trip.  I don't have any photos of trips from when I was a kid, and I didn't feel like doing just one page from a more recent trip, so I just went along with a pile of photos I've been working on.  Just taking advantage of a rare warm spring day in May in 2006.  I was able to use yet another unfinished class LO from CKC.  This is all from the BG Picadilly Collection.
And finally, LOAD #24-Numbers. I loosely interpreted this one.  I've had these items for almost 3 years thatI bought at a Scrapbook Expo in Chicago.  I have already finished the boys' baby albums, so they've just been sitting around wishing to be used.  I didn't add his birthday for privacy reasons.  It will go under the big glittery letter 'E'.
Phew, only 4 days left.  Good thing too.  My scrap room is a MESS!
