Project Life 2017 | Weeks 17-21

Catching up on Project Life... I'm not sure what happened, but I somehow got a couple of months behind. I am enjoying the super simple format I went with this year ... it's going to make getting caught back up easy.

I made all these 5 weeks using Wishing Well Creations' Project 2016 April collection.

Another Easter page

I couldn't scrap Easter with just one photo, could I? Here's a quickie facing page for the Easter 2017 page I scrapped last night.

Feelin' Good | The Johnson's Rope Swing

I haven't had a chance to scrap for a while. It felt good to sit down to my laptop for a while this evening with @JustJaimee's new July 2017 Storyteller Collection!

Through the Lens

I love playing along with digimorph games at The Digital Press! I created this as a one page layout, but it became the left side of what became a 2 page layout. If you're curious about what a digimorph game is about (they're super fun!) ... or you want to see the entire "Big Reveal", click here!

NOTE: I posted this earlier, but this is the right side of what became a 2 page layout using this page:

The story:

What do I remember/know?
  • Pictured in this photo are me (Barbara (May) Unzen, my friend Janice Thorau and behind Janice would most likely be my sister Karen (May) Senger).
  • We apparently had biked to the public pool in New Ulm. Since there’s a photo, Mom must have been there. We don’t have all that many childhood photos so I wonder why it was a photo-worthy occasion. Hmm.
  • It was 1974 which makes me 11 years old. 1974 . . . aren’t the bikes fun? Check out our cool bike baskets. Great swimsuits, right?
  • These days everyone knows about US Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. In those days we had Mark Spitz and I remember there were posters Mark Spitz at the pool.
  • An amusing (to me at least) memory that comes to mind seeing this photo is of me taking swimming lessons at the public pool. I’m not sure this is accurate, but I remember that at some point I "failed" my swimming lessons and I was mad. “If you're not going to pass me, I'll show you. I'm not going to take lessons anymore, so there.” FYI, I was always a perfectly competent swimmer so obviously it was OK.
