I did Ashley Wren design school…

…the Unpredictable Requests….

And I can tell you that I will not get bored in a long time. I did not get that much scrapbooking done because I spent a lot of time writing down my own ideas, inspired by AW`s great requests. She is so inspiring. I will have something to work on long after Christmas. One of her first requests was to make small “windows” of pieces of acrylic overlay and paint. I made my four cute windows, painted them and put photos on them. I set them aside to dry. The only problem was….they did not dry…because I had forgotten to remove the film before using the paint. One of those funny moments…. I did not have the guts to do it one more time, so I made a bigger one:

There is not much summer left but it has been a warm, nice day. There is still moments of traffic-jam at the Atlantic Road.

I had dinner at my brothers house today. He is having his in laws visiting and we did try to have a family photo taken. That is not easy….

We tried with tree generations....

We tried with three generations....

 

And we tried with four generations...

And we tried with four generations...

At lest we got them framed….that is better then nothing…I think….

I have one more photo I have to share. It is from last night. A young man – a newly wed – ready to take his bride out to party. Wearing the jacket his grandma knitted for him.  He is dressed just like his grandpa was when he  dressed to party in 1940-1950. Come to think about it…I believe I have some photos somewhere of both his father and grandfather in jackets like this. Jan ready to party - dressed in a jacket knitted by grandma...

Talking about connections – ref. Stacy Julian. I will come back to that tomorrow…
