Per request, I am posting this early- I am your guest host for the Theme Challenge. Thank you Tracy for letting me play hostess this week. I have chosen to post two different themes...just in case one doesn't suit your fancyl

Theme Challenge #1 - "Before/After" - Show me a before and an after. You have all seen hundreds of dieting commercials in print and know exactly what I am looking for. Be creative with this...Some examples might be your darling little one before his/her first haircut and after (or god-forbid the first haircut done by his/her own scissors), your stamping space before scrapping a page and after (and if you are like me everything is strewn all over!), your body before kids and after, your body before Jenny Craig and after, your dog before being groomed and after...I will let you think of the some more!

Theme Challenge #2 - "What Makes You Smile" - Some of the most wonderful pages to look back upon are pages that include your favorite things. This can be your favorite things or a special person or pet in your life's favorite things. Just let us know what makes you smile!


Scan or take a photo of your work, upload with SBTC24 in the keywords, place them in the 12x12 or 8 1/2x11 Scrapbook Page Categories. Then come back and post it here for us all to see.

Remember there are NO UPLOADS on Sundays.

I'm looking forward to working on this theme challenge. I'm notsure about the before and after, but the "What Makes Me Smile" - I'll have a hard time deciding what to do the page on.

Sounds like fun... Hey, I could do a page on losing weight.... and titling it "The Big Yo Yo" Before, After, Before, After.... on second thought, that would be too depressing!! LOL!

I'm getting seriously hooked on these challenges! Thanks for the idea!

Default Before Kids

Here's my Before/After challenge: I still need to add some creative "arrows" of some kind, to link the before/after shots.... any ideas?? TFL.

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=81047

BK: Before Kids (PS: BK is also my initials so I added my names in small print in the title)

Journalling:

People so often make the comment “I don’t remember what life was like Before Kids”. I do. I’ll be honest, there are times when I am sad because I don’t have that BK life anymore… I loved exploring the Island on my motorbike, which we painted bright Orange and named “Cheeto” (in honour of my favourite snack.) I felt great wearing clothes a “few sizes” smaller... I worked so hard to get there. Ahhh… BK.

This summer (2006) we sold my motorbike and bought a tent trailer. I cried when I heard the rumbly purr of my Beemer bike drive away for the last time. But I wouldn’t trade my life for anything. I’m a wife and a mom. We will create new family memories with our tent trailer and, really, does it matter what size I am?? One day those other things will come back. For now though, I’m going to eat my Cheetos in my tent trailer and enjoy my kids! Life’s too short to dwell in the past.

I was browsing our wonderful gallery and noticed that Sapphire1968 had this page in her gallery and it fits our theme this week perfectly...so I thought I'd share it.

cased from none other than one of my favorite scrappers BetsyJo
