This is the little niece of my photographer friend, Twila. Twila doesn't 'do' computers, so she sends me photos to 'clean up' for her & lets me play with them

Gimmie a Copy Scraplift Challenge #4. This is a scraplift of "Our Kitty" created by Renee S and can be found here:
Journaling reads: We said that we would have only one animal when we brought Spider home but when Echo showed up on the door step we could not turn her away. She took to both of the
kids like she knew that she was meant to be in their lives and she stole their hearts. Now we can
not imagine what it would be like to not have her in our lives. Spider has even found a soft spot in his heart for her.

I created the shadow frames myself.

This-_N-That by

I love Lauren's Gimme A Copy Challenge, I have found that I have learned many scrapping skills by lifting LO's. Lauren's challenge gives me the incentive to keep on lifting and learning.
This time we are lifting Renee S wonderful LO Our Kitty
For this LO I used This N' That Page kit by Lauren Bavin. I have loved this kit but never used it before so I am happy to put it to use.
I also used stitching from Cut Out Frames by Lauren Bavin
We had a Kitten family under our front porch and I snapped some pictures to make a LO about it. Renee beautiful LO reminded me about so two years later I finally scrapped it.

Journalling Reads:
Growing on the farm were quite a number of trees with large areas of their trunks removed. When the farm was sold and trees needed to be removed for the capital works programme to go ahead, the trees were inspected by aboriginal elders and identified as being of significance to the aboriginal culture, the cuttings believed to have been made hundreds of years ago by aboriginals for the making of canoes. The tree trunks were saved from destruction and now have a place of honour in the aboriginal artifacts section at the local Botanical Gardens where, if we are feeling nostalgic for the family farm, we can go visit them. In this photo, Maddy and Laura reacquaint themselves with one of Pop's trees!
I have scraplifted Renee_s's LO
Thanks for the inspiration Renee and for the challenge Lauren

This is a scraplift of renee s page as suggested in Gimme a Scraplift.
I used the Gimme challenge kit: Impetuous Summer by Lauren Bavin
After I had created the layout, I decided to turn it upside down. The only problem was redoing all the shadows. Took a while!

Never Too Old by Sharon1313

I haven't done that many scraplifts, and it was amazing how fast this page came together when I didn't have to think of a design to start with! Loosely scraplifted "Our Kitty" by Renee S.
I really love these little journaling frames by Lauren Bavin - there's a whole set called The Whole Story. I was eager to scrap with them and this was the perfect page to try them out.
I used all products by Lauren, including:
The Whole Story Photo Journaling Frames
Two Orange Dragonflies Page Kit
Through the Viewfinder Overlay Stack (overlay)
Seriously Steampunk Page Kit (screws)
Journaling reads:
Katie and Amanda had the opportunity to spend an hour or two at a playground they had never been to, while Diane and I talked. They checked out every single slide, swing and jungle gym and played in the underground fort. Good times! May 2011

Scraplift of: Our Kitty by renee s in the DET gallery - for Lauren's Gimme a Copy challenge
Although we had decided that we would not get more pets, we relented and got a rabbit. Rebecca chose a little white baby bunny that she named Princess Snow White Bunny! We have ended up calling her Snowy Bunny. She is really an absolute sweetheart. She has the run of the house and the run of the garden. She uses the same door entrances as the cats, and you can hear her hopping through the house to come and greet us in the mornings before she goes out again. She loves apples but loves grapes even more - we joke that you could ge her to do anything for a couple of grapes. You can always tell when she has been digging though - as her fur gets muddy red coloured.

I'll repost my final version after I have time to finish it up later tonight after I get home.
Back from my evening with friends and got my finishing touches done (added the wordart, tweaked a few things here and there)

1943_Charles_and_Hugh by Barbie

This layout documents a story I recently heard about my dad and a young friend.
Secret Desire Value Collection by Lauren Bavin
Journaling: On one of his visits to Baltimore after going into the Army, Charles and Hugh went to a baseball game together (probably Baltimore Orioles). Hugh took his glove and was most eager to catch a ball--in fact he prayed fervently to be able to catch a ball.. As it happened, a ball was hit straight toware Hugh’s glove, but unfortunately it bounced off his glove; his buddy Charles reached and snagged the ball. Immediately, one of the ushers approached to retrieve the ball (that was what was done at that time), but when he saw that the ball had actually been caught by a uniformed soldier, he allowed Charles to keep the ball. And Charles gave the ball to Hugh.
At Hugh’s funeral visitation in 2011, his daughter, upon being introduced to Charles’ wife, told the story as she had recently heard it from her dad. He has kept that ball as a reminder of how much our Heavenly Father cares about even our smallest needs and desires. God’s answer was even better than Hugh had imagined--if he had caught the ball, he would not have been able to keep it, but because Charles had caught it, he had a wonderful keepsake!
