Default TLC265 ~ Childhood Memories ~ (03/22/10)

Hi Friends


When the new Alice in Wonderland movie hit theatres, It immediately took me back MANY years. When I was about 8 years old, my mom bought me a set of books which included Alice In Wonderland, Black Beauty and several others. I spent a great deal of time reading those books. I remember to this day that Alice In Wonderland gave me nightmares, though!

~ Childhood Memories ~


Today, our challenge is more of a directive than a technique, but we’re going with it. I want you to reach back into your memory and pull out some favorite childhood activities or events. Then I challenge you to make a card or project based on one of those memories/events.

Here are a few of mine that might help jog your memory:
  • Tire swings
  • Slumber Parties
  • Ding Dong Ditch!
  • Outdoor movies
  • Summer Camp
  • Dress up
  • Tea Parties
  • Board games
  • Vacation by car!

Those are just a few that came to mind. I am sure that you all will come up with a ton of your own.

Here is my sample:

~ Tea for Three ~

When uploading your card/project, please use KEYWORD TLC265 (no spaces)

You can find the TLC265 gallery HERE.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask here in the thread or PM me.

Now go create!

Wow! That's a broad category. I'm traveling with limited supplies--hopefully I can think something up.

Thanks, Holly, for giving me the chance to use a stamp that is very special to me. The image itself is THE memory. Someone on SCS did a card with this image...it could be several years ago.....and was kind enough to answer my inquiry about the lighthouse stamp. I was able to get one on EBay...most people want the round ones, I guess.

Oh Holly, I never find time to join in on Monday's challenge, but this is so sweet. Childhood memories, for many, are so filled with wonderful things. This is a fabulous challenge.

Holly, this was a fun challenge. One of my childhood memories was playing Barbies with my sister. My card was based on that.

Hi girls,

I just wanted to say... even though I am still going through the entries and reading your stories, this has been my favorite challenge so far. The stories and memories I am reading are just precious. I am smiling and crying and just having so much fun looking at your gorgeous creations.

Thank you all!!!
