Thank you Diana! :-) Hello everyone! I hope you are ready for Mays Challenge? To start off you are going to go to my BLOG (http://designsbynanac.blogspot.com/search/label/Personal%20Use%20Only). From there you are going to download if you have not already My Kalide a Rose mini kit. For the first half of the month we are going to scrap our MOMS in honor of Mothers Day. Using the letters of their first names you are going to use words that describes your mom. ;-) You may only use my mini kit for this challenge.

I want 4 6x4 Templates. When you download this kit it is in my PU Only. YOU MAY SHARE THIS WITHIN THE FORUM!!
Please remember to upload your shared templates for everyone to grab. Feel free to recolor to suit your needs. Most importantly have fun.

Be sure to upload your template file to this forum. You may use your custom shapes.

Have fun and lets get creative.

You may not use anyone elses items that have been shared or that you have purchased.

Ok so its lost somewhere in 4 shared I uploaded two different links. Use this min kit instead. If you make anything else out of the papers and embies you may share those too. LINK 1 (http://www.4shared.com/file/E3nStjYq/SBM_MAY_JCO.html) LINK 2 (http://www.4shared.com/file/GlRZha09/SBM_MAY2_JCO.html). Ok these 2 links should work. I checked them out. Late April Fools! LOL!

It looks like these work but it says it will take me over 3 hours each file to download because of the file size. Man I hate dial up. Oh well. I'll have to wait until I go to my daughters to use her wireless broadband connection. And I was all set to stay up all night working on it. <wink> I'll download other of Nana's fabulous freebies while I'm there. Thanks so much.

And Another..... Same problem, can't figure out how to make a template. Could it be because they are all in the same file, I just keep adding pages, instead of having a bunch of seprate files for the same challenges?

Another great one KimmyAnn. You should be able to export the template. Just like when we share in the template sharing forum. After wards, go to file and export your template. Hope this helps

Here are my pages. I don't know if I can upload the template because it is too large. I even made 4 individual ones. They were still too large. I tried 4Shared but it was going to take over 5 hours to upload. Sorry, dial up just is not compatible with these large files. I hope this doesn't disqualify me.

Strange, it worked. The reason I say strange is because I have my computer automatically clear that stuff on shut down. Maybe something was just acting up yesterday for me. Thanks for the tip.

Beautiful layouts! The second half of the month, I would like you to scrap your mom and all siblings. I have finals this week, I will be checking back in with you all in a couple of days. So scrap and have fun. You may make your templates 12x12 if you wish. Please remember to share them in this thread .
Happy scrapping.

Here's my layout. My Mom was the oldest of three sisters. I have included a variety of pictures of them. Mom's nickname was Poog. Her younger sister Carolyn could never say Frances, so she started saying Poog. It stuck as Mom's nickname.

Linda, you did a great job! I love old pics. . .

I'm a bit sad now, I don't have pics of all my mother's dozen or so siblings. . . Most had passed on before I was born and I don't think they were into pics the way we are :) . . . Could I perhaps scrap a page with my mom & all her kids (my siblings?)

In the meantime, I'll try and see if any of my cousins have old pics . . . Who knows, I may just get lucky!!!

What an awesome layout O2BNGdHope . . . Everything fits together so beautifully!!

Thanks for the kind words Val!! Linda, you couln't be more spot on . . . NanaC's challenge was just the catalyst I needed to find out about my family. . . THANKS NANAC!!! . . . Our families are odd about not talking to the kids (no matter what their age) about the happenings and people of the past . . . Surprisingly, both my parents were very forth coming this time when they knew it was "just for my scrapping" :) I learnt quite a bit. . . Now I'm all excited about doing our ENTIRE family tree from my grandparents to my parents great grandchildren (aunts, uncles, cousins and all included!!!) . . . Ambitious, I know . . . But as a laatlammetjie (born 10 yrs after my youngest sibling), I know very little about my family and this seemed just the way to fix it!!! I've already mailed family members for their pics!!! Wish me well gals!!!

Oh, Daydreamer! As the "family tree keeper" for my family, I understand your sudden drive for info on your family. Good luck with your hunt and once you have your grandparents, you can search further back as well!

Good luck daydreamer with your search for your family history. It really is wonderful tracing your ancestry. My oldest sister does genealogy and has traced our famly back many generations. She has discovered very much about those who came before us.

Surprisingly, both my parents were very forth coming this time when they knew it was "just for my scrapping" :) I learnt quite a bit. . . Now I'm all excited about doing our ENTIRE family tree from my grandparents to my parents great grandchildren (aunts, uncles, cousins and all included!!!) . . . Ambitious, I know . . . But as a laatlammetjie (born 10 yrs after my youngest sibling), I know very little about my family and this seemed just the way to fix it!!! I've already mailed family members for their pics!!! Wish me well gals!!!

Thats great to hear it opened some doors. Good luck in your search of family history.

Gosh a busy month this month. I am working on packaging up your mini kit for participation. I will check back in a day or two.

I have also been terribly busy this month. Here is my Mom, Dad and my siblings.

Thank you so much for this lovely kit. I love the colors--they are beautiful.
