Challenge 2

Challenge 2 is up and I had a hard time with it, but boy am I happy with it now!

Dance With Me by Psuchozoe (retired kit)
dance shoes - Dance With Me by Harmonystar (welcome wagon kit)

High School sweet hearts often get the story of how the met 
looked over. Perhaps cause in a small town “met” is not the 
right word. We always knew of eachother, but became friends
when I helped Ryan to date one of my best friends. When 
things didn’t spark with them we communicated less as well, until the year 2000 dance festival.
Not only was I dancing in the festival, but I was on the committee with 7 other couples to help teach others and perform several specialty numbers. For a year we worked on this, then just over a month before the performance my partner told me he was going to be in Alaska that week. 
I needed a new partner FAST. I remembered that Ryan had danced a little in a school musical and was prepared to beg. Turend out all I had to do was ask.
We spent a lot of time together as I taught him all the specialty dance numbers. Ryan was a quick learner if a little clunky in
his style. I was very happy to get to dance all the dances at the festival. 
Ryan found my friendly personality
attractive and I found his kindness and sense 
of responsibilty equally so. Four and a half years later
we were married. 
Although we don’t dance so much now, I’ll never forget it was all because of dancing.

Challenge 9 - Sara

Challenge 9


We thought long and hard about coming up with a challenge that would be fun and also provide people with a variety of different directions in which they could take the challenge. We hope you have fun with this and can't wait to see how the challenge inspires you!

Challenge Theme:
All About Me (yes, you have to scrap a page about yourself!)

Subject of Layout: Scrap about something you inherited from a family member (it can be a physical attribute ex: smile, nose, funny laugh, a personality quirk ex: sense of humor, fearlessness, a talent ex: sewing, great athlete, a certain passion ex: love for animals, love of gardening, etc.) You are NOT limited to these examples; if you can figure out something....anything....that you inherited from another family member and you can scrap about it....GO FOR IT!!


1. The layout must have two photos (it can have more). The two required photos must be one photo of yourself and a second photo that illustrates the "thing" that you inherited. For example, if you inherited your mother's cooking ability one photo must be of yourself and the second photo could either be a photo of your mom cooking, or a photo of a great meal, or even a photo of a favorite recipe or cookbook. As long as the second photo helps to illustrate the "thing" that you inherited it works.

2. The layout must have a title that uses one of the following:
-a mix of different fonts (at least 2) or
-a mix of different alphas (at least 2) or
-a mix of fonts and alphas (at least 1 font and 1 alpha)

3. The layout must including journaling explaining what the inheritance is

4. Your layouts must be posted in NDISB's ADSR 6 gallery.

Challenge 8

At Sunshine Studio Scraps

This year's theme is Family so here is our challenge:
What does family mean to you?

Think about the question, your answer, & create a layout using it. Simple, right?

Well... you're not getting off that easy....

Your Answer has to be in the Title of your layout.
Somewhere on your layout have either the question written out "What does family mean to me?" or you may also use "Family = (your answer)"

Somewhere on my page I have the question written out "What does family mean to me?" My title is "Drama"
So I've used the question and answered it. My answer is my title.
So then I make my layout about a moment when that particular word comes in, when something happened that I had to deal with Drama with my family (who doesn't have family drama... lol)

Photos are optional since there may not be a particular moment for it or you didn't want to take a photo while dealing with something such as Drama

That's not all! Now here's some additional rules. You may choose TWO out of the FIVE options. You MUST use at least TWO of them on your layout, any two. You can always use more than 2 if you want.
  • Use at least 2 different alphas for your title
  • Use at least 3 pattern papers
  • Use at least 3 solid papers
  • Use at least 2 different fonts in your journaling
  • Make a list of the reasons why you answered with that word (your title)
Example using same answer as above: Drama
1. Disagreements
2. Opening mouth...insert foot (what family member doesn't say something they shouldn't have said?..haha)
3. .... and so on
Let us know in your credits which of the two options you chose to use.

Sara's 6.3

Here's my Challenge 3 LO:

"Take A Dip" by Digi-Designs by Nicole

As a family we enjoy sitting down to play
a version of “Go Fish.” Zsolt doesn’t fully understand
the rules of the game, but he loves using the fishing
pole to catch the fish and put them in the boats.
Anara enjoys sucking on the little cardboard fishies.
Mom and Dad try to establish order, but the game
generally ends with lots of giggles as the fish
are thrown wildy into the air.
