SPRING CROP 2011 CHALLENGE 12: Pen to Paper

SPRING CROP 2011 CHALLENGE 12: Pen to Paper

Postby helpmeronda » May 14th, '11, 5:04 pm

This challenge is about you bringing your pen to paper. Not all of our stories come with photos but they are stories that should be told & shared with future generations. So i invite you to put down the photo and pick up the pen to document a story with NO PHOTOS.

Here's my take on the challenge

the journaling

and Anna's beautiful take

We will decide on the winners and announce on the forum shortly after. Prizes for this crop will range from a variety of scrapbooking products, and gift certificates from our store. Thank you for playing along and good luck!

I love Rondas layout so much and Danielle - yours are gorgeous!

Mine is kind of silly, but I had fun writing it. I just wrote down my thougths regarding some recent events in the media here in Sweden. It's not so much about the actual events as about how we communicate and how internet and twitter played a role... :)

Such gorgeous layouts!
Ronda, your journaling nearly had me in tears. Beautiful! I remember when it happened two years ago and my heart still goes out to you. I can't even imagine how hard it must have been. :(

Just beautiful! I think we need to create more of these, we have so many memories that should be recored and not having photos shouldn't keep us from documenting them. Thank you Ronda for sharing such a personal and hard memory.

Thank you all for your kind words.

as strange as this may sound, it was good to get that one paper. to maybe let it go a bit. it's a hard memory but it is also part of my emotional make up. I want future generations to really know who i am. i think how i feel is as important as dates & events.

I love that you are willing to share that extremely personal side of yourself, Ronda. I am soooo sorry for your loss, and it only makes us all feel closer to you somehow for sharing it. :)
