That's So Cape! (My Journey of a Book Layout)

thats so cape

I finally found time to make my Journey of a Book layout.  The hardest part is choosing photos!  I was going to label each photo and decided that would make it too busy.  You still have time to join us to share your layout for this collective book showing where we live around the world.  Read more here.

Speed Scrap #23 & a Freebie

1 comment:
We had a chat and speed scrap on Groundhog Day in 2014 and I gave away this freebie.  I have now made this permanently as Speed Scrap #23.  You do not need to use the download in your layout, but may if you want.  Just follow the directions on the guide page and submit your layout to the linky on the blog.  We'd love to have you join us in "just scrapping."

Oh, but if you do use any of the freebie, I'd love to see that too!  As always!

Note:  Some of you have already done this challenge and if you are keeping track of credits, peak at your layout on the guide page to see if it is there and give yourself credit!

Dear Lord,

The Homeless Man

No comments:
It was a cold winter's day that Sunday. The parking lot to the church was filling up quickly. I noticed as I got out of my car that fellow church members were whispering among themselves as they walked to the church. As I got closer I saw a man leaned up against the wall outside the church. He was almost laying down as if he was asleep. He had on a long trench coat that was almost in shreds and a hat topped his head,pulled down so you could not see his face.

He wore shoes that looked 30 years old, too small for his feet with holes all over them, his toes stuck out. I assumed this man was homeless, and asleep, so I walked on by through the doors of the church. We all fellowshipped for a few minutes, and someone brought up the man laying outside. People snickered and gossiped but no one bothered to ask him to come in, including me.

A few moments later church began. We all waited for the Preacher to take his place and to give us the Word, when the doors to the church opened. In came the homeless man walking down the aisle with his head down. People gasped and whispered and made faces. He made his way down the aisle and up onto the pulpit he took off his hat and coat.

My heart sank.

There stood our preacher...he was the "homeless man." No one said a word. The preacher took his Bible and laid it on the stand.

"Folks, I don't think I have to tell you what I am preaching about today." Then he started singing the words to this song. "If I can help somebody as I pass along. If I can cheer somebody with a word or song.

If I can show somebody that he's traveling wrong. Then my living shall not be in vain."

Deadline March 30 |JOIN US! Journey of a Book - A collective (like a Circle Scrapbook!)

We have done several of these collective books in the past and I was inspired today to begin another one. Previous collective book project included:

I was recalling from years ago when Circle Books were popular, mainly among paper scrapbookers.  What is a Circle Book?  One person would purchase a book, add some things to a page or two and then mail it to the second person, who added to the book and mailed it to the third person, and so on.  When done, the book was mailed back to the original person who had a fun treasure to keep!

I've always wanted to do one of these Circle Books, but honestly, I do not trust that everyone that it is mailed to will complete it and pass it on!  That is the beauty of digital scrapbooking.  We can do a Circle Book and do not even have to mail it!  How cool is that!

Often in Circle Books each person would add something from where they live.  This is such a fun theme and this is the theme of our book. 

Our collective book will be called "Journey of a Book" and each person should submit a page that includes something special about where they live.  We shall take a journey through your graphics!  I have always loved how digital scrapbooking brings together people from around the world.  I love the unity and peace between countries and cultures.  What better way to show it!

One special note is that all pages should be done within a circle shape.  Make your graphic 8 x 8, but start with a circle and put all your photos and elements within the circle.  This will make our book feel consistent while flipping through the pages.

If you are a paper scrapbooker and want to join us, feel free to do it in paper, but scan it in and send it to us.

As in all other lessons and challenges here at Hummie's World, just upload it and link it to the linky on the blog.  I will find them, collect them, and put them into a book as I did in the previous ones.  You can also put the link in the comments below so I can be sure not to miss any.

Let's put a deadline on this of March 30.

Please comment below if you are going to join us!  This shall be fun!

Know Your Google Feud

No comments:
When you search on Google, Google tries to guess what you are about to type and uses other people's searches to autocomplete your query.  It keeps track of the most popular searches.

Now there is a game called Google Feud where you can try to guess Google's autocomplete suggestions.  Choose a category.  You get three wrong guesses.

I am not very good at it!  I thought I would be much better.   This is actually a fun time waster.

Question of the day ~ Did you know?

Tell something that nobody in the group knows about you.
