Here's the challenge for round 2:
[This challenge is inspired by one of my personal themes songs – Photograph by Michael Stipe & Natalie MerchantHere is a link to the lyrics:http://www.scraplovers.com/forum/showthread.php?p=144996Once you have read through the lyrics, I hope you are inspired to scrap a piece of your family history, because that is exactly what you need to do this week. This page will be heritage in nature and should include something of sentimental value, a piece of memorabilia that you have wanted to scrap, something you have saved to put on your pages and just never have. Some examples may include, but are in no way limited to, a piece of lace, a ticket stub, a postcard, an old love letter, a pressed flower. Of course, this bit of memorabilia will be useless unless you tell why it is important too, so be sure to include some journaling – either seen or hidden – but include the journaling in your description.]
Here's what I came up with:
The inside pic is one of the earliest pics Troy and I took together as a couple (circa 1994) and the outer pic is the most recent one taken this month. On Valentine's Day 2001, my husband (then my fiance) printed a message to me in the newspaper, which I used on the LO as my piece of memorabilia. (see the bird's beak) Message reads: Tanisha 143 (means I love you) You're the music in my heart. Troy
Journaling reads: Looking at this photo of us makes me laugh! Look how young we were. Can you believe it's been 13 years? It seems like yesterday...it's funny because I still feel as youthful around you now as I did back then. My love for you has grown tremendously over the years and I can't imagine life without you. So here's to another 13 years and then another...and another...and another! Always and forever, Tanisha journalled May 17, 2007 TFL!
