View Full Version : April Heritage Challenge- Tell Me a Story!

04-05-2010, 05:12 PM
Okay, we're starting another new challenge this month called, Tell Me a Story.

For this first month, April, we will try to start out easier by letting YOU scrap any picture or pictures you'd like, with the only rule that you have to journal or tell a short story about it. Heritage picture or recent picture is fine, too:)
Here's mine:

Now, let's get some pages together for our many wonderful albums so that those that view them may learn something from our pages...

I think either or both would work:)

Short stories are fine! And sometimes you can tell a story with a series of pictures and the right title. Stories can be told all sorts of ways! :)

I was pretty amazed at what I found. I found a lot of info in the LDS records, as my family was Mormon, photos and even a first hand account of my great great grandfather's death. The story of my great great grandmother's life was in her own words from her letters. And I found corroborating info at surnames.com Thanks for this challenge and for making me journal!!!!!!! My daughters are a lot more interested than I would have thought.

My brother was also a long-haired blond at that time. Looking at the photo of me, we really looked like twins – only he was the cute twin! Hah!

I joined recently and hope to be inspired by challenges to actually scrapbook instead of mostly thinking about it. Checked in on this challenge today. I have a page already done that fits the challenge and I would like to upload it but I can't find out how. I'm sure there are clear directions. It wouldn't be the first time I've missed my glasses when they were on my forehead. :confused:

I think some of the security stuff on my browser might be interferring even though I have your site on my "cookie white list." Just now tried to post this and went right to a page where I needed to log in again. So I'm trying another browser.

Right now I'm trying to upload it to photobucket so I can at least link to it, but the site seems too busy.

I like the layouts you've done so much and really hope I can work at this. DSS seems like a wonderful site to help with inspiration, not to mention kits.

Wow, I actually got the layout uploaded. Then had to sign in again to get back here. Something about this browser spits out cookies!
