Hi scrappers. The month is winding down and MOC 6 will soon be a distant memory, but having scrapped all month, we will have fantastic pages commemorating the event with layouts that are just a few keystrokes away on our hard drives. It is important, as memory keepers, to share our reminiscences with our families. As such, for this challenge, we will take a trip down memory lane and tell a story about the past. Perhaps, you have a holiday tradition or a story that has been handed down to you through the generations that you would like to tell. To make it interesting, and since it is a heritage challenge, let’s tell stories from the 20th century (1900-1999). Please display the date clearly. If you are like me, you might have to guess the date, so I’m good with the decade, e.g. 1950s or Circa ~ 1990s, etc. OPTIONAL: if you wish, you may include up to three photos that highlight the memory for you. It is ok to use current photos. For example, I think of the antique school bell on my mantel which elicits lots of family stories regarding the school house that once stood on our property in Iowa. Here is my page which tells about the beginning of my husband’s school year in the 1950s. In order for your page to count, you must follow the challenge requirements: Tell a story that is set in the 20th century (1900 – 1999) in your single-page layout. Prominently display the date or decade on the page. Optional: include up to 3 photos that relate to your story. These can be current photos. Your journaling should be a minimum of 150 words, in complete sentences, to qualify as complete. Word art will not qualify toward your word count. You cannot use the same word 150 times. You cannot use the same sentence over and over again. Journaling challenges are meant for telling stories; if your journaling is sensitive or personal, please message me or Julie (mrs2a50) directly to discuss. Your journaling should be legible and readable. If your page is not in English, we ask that you translate your journaling to English and post the translation in your gallery credits. If your journaling has been distressed or your font is too small to read, you should post your journaling in your gallery credits. Again, if your journaling is sensitive and/or personal, please message me or Julie directly to discuss. Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers). ” I look forward to reading your reminiscences.
