Family Fun Time AND Challenge time!!

Good morning to all!! Hope you had a wonderful long weekend and 4th of July!!! We had a great day, celebrated with family and great friends, Kel and Dawn! The weather held out. It did down pour for about a minute, most folks were in the pool to it didn't matter!!!

We decided it was challenge time! We haven't had one in quite some time, so get your thinking caps on!!! The challenge is to do a scrapbook page, any size you like, and the subject is Family Fun Time! The catch (there is always a catch isn't there!), you have to use an element, a tool, and embellishment that you haven't used in a long time. You have to tell us what that embellishment/tool is. You have until July 30th to get enter your page. Please enter a new project. We have a fun prize of two embossing folders, and a some fun rub-ons. Unfortunately, the prize is in my husband's truck and he is off to work. I will get a picture up soon!!! You do not have to be a follower to enter, but if you would like to follow us we would love to have you! Please email me, Laurie, your page to lbaires@comcast.net. We LOVE to show off your work and give your blog props as well!! All about the scrapping it forward!!

This is take on my family fun time. We went bowling a few months back and I finally got these pages done. I bought a template at CK Manchester and have been dying to use it (this is my tool). I used it on the bottom of the page with the two kids bowling.

I also took a pic of the score board, so we could remember the winner and the scores!! Dawn's daughter won, girl power!!

I found fun bowling embellishments from K&Company.

I took a close up of this picture, because I used Photo Elf, to write on the picture. My son and Dawn's daughter would have a meeting right before they bowled every time, telling each other how they should throw the ball. It says, "Meeting of the minds". I love me some Photo Elf


  1. Great layout... I love the design.

  2. OMG - I love this!!! The template looks really cool. Great challenge! I am sure that I have more than enough poor ignored items to think about for this challenge! :)

  4. Ooops, Sherrie, I am sorry. I didn't put the info in my post.

  6. Great layout. We are big bowlers in my family, always a fun time! Sounds like a fun challenge, I need to think about a tool I haven't used in a while.

  7. I like the meeting of the minds saying! So appropriate!
    Thank You for dropping by my blog and saying so many wonderful things

  8. Fabulous layouts....I can't even remember the last time I went bowling. Hmmm...something about floppy wrists...lol.

  9. Super pages! That's too funny that you took a photo of the score board. I'm the sort to do the same thing though!
    This month is ridiculously crazy for me so I'll have to see what I can do with the challenge.
