Last week was my turn to host the Friday Challenge over at Let's Scrap. This was my challenge:
My challenge for you is to scrapbook a layout about the everyday or the ordinary. I'm leaving this open for your interpretation but some examples are: your everyday routines or schedules or ordinary things in your life (maybe it's something you do everyday, your favorite beverage or a pair of shoes, etc., etc.)
I came across some fun titles while I was thinking about this challenge and my layout.
Here are some examples:
- Just an ordinary day
- This everyday, ordinary moment
- You take the ordinary moments and make them shine
- A life less ordinary
- Everyday life
- I love my ordinary life...
- Pieces of my everyday life
- Not your ordinary fairytale
- A day in the life of...
- I love these everyday moments
- There is no such thing as an ordinary day
- "Time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life." ~Brian Andreas
I also did a two-page layout based on one of Cheri's sketches. This layout is near and dear to my heart. It is a tribute to our sweet little dog Pickles, that we had to put to sleep several years ago. I've had these pictures for a long time and just haven't felt like scrapbooking them. When I saw Cheri's sketch, I immediately thought of doing a layout of Pickles and including the Poem "Rainbow Bridge." Here it is:
If you've ever lost a pet, then you've probably heard of the "Rainbow Bridge." If not, click on the right page to see it larger and you should be able to read it. Soooooo sweet!
Finally, I did a layout of Swim Team from last summer. This is another fun sketch from Cheri over at Let's Scrap. Here is my take on her sketch:
I had a hard time getting a good picture of this layout for some reason.... but hopefully you get the idea! I'm glad I finally got these pictures done - since there's only two more weeks of this year's swim team - hee hee!
Tomorrow a new sketch will be posted at Let's Scrap, so make sure to stop by and check it out!
