October 2012: A GOLDMINE I tell you...
« on: October 01, 2012, 07:13:53 pm »
HELLO SCRAPPY MINIONS!!!  :D

I had this whole "HEADER that leads into an AWESOME CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION alllll worked out....then I've had a weekend FULL of technical issues (the whole "uh, my C: drive disappeared and my desktop is totally different" scenario lasted alllll weekend). 
So it is with my apologies that I give you the "Not as smoothly written rendition of what you're to accomplish with this challenge".   I really hope you get more from my example/journaling than you do from my description.  OY.

Your journaling challenge for this month, should you choose to accept it:     
Use an "older" picture (AKA go and look into your "older" stash - you know- that stuff you haven't seen in a while) and tap into the "now" emotions you feel about the photo ...    ugh. SAMPLE AND JOURNALING TO FOLLOW:



2005:  Journaling ...    I will admit, that sometimes I am simply shocked by the photos that I find "tucked away" for safekeeping in my stash of things to scrapbook/keep.  These were in my last goldmine find.  A week has passed at this point, since his 15th birthday.  To find an envelope full of his little league photos (which apparently didn't get passed out to family either) at the ripe old age of seven (photo was Spring 2005).  I felt like I was in a time machine. I can absolutely remember his face just like this - seven years ago can feel like "a lot" or "a little" depending on perspective.

Dealing with separation as we are at this point - I relaly need to hold on to little moments like this that hug my heart strings, and appreciate the good feelings.  I an celebrate my little man becoming such a young man (soooo close to being 'old', he says).

I'm glad that my organizational skills with my photos allows for me to have moements like this --I can go on a mental vacation and hang out with my seven year old little legaue dude for a while.  And I'm also glad for Facebook, where a mom can post pictures of her PreciousBabyBoy and everyone can share the "aww" moment with me ;)
(photos circa 2005/journaling 2012)

Can't wait to see what everyone digs up ;)
HAPPY JOURNALING!!!

April - I know you mentioned "feelings"  but this one just begged to be scrapped, so this is what you get!   ;D ;D ;D

I put hidden journaling explaining the characters.  I think most people will know "Snow White", but I'm not so sure of "Pink Panther".
