Talking Master Thread -- VSBN20May -- Staycation - For the People, By the People

TITLE: Welcome to Cleveland
Keyword: VSBN20MayA
Date: May 1, 2020
Challenge #1 .... hostess  Lela (SCS Lmn) 

Welcome to Cleveland .... O - H -- I - O!

So I don't "technically" live in Cleveland but it's the closest major city to where I do live right now. Cleveland is the 52nd largest city in the US, 2nd largest in Ohio. One of the VERY Cool Spots to see in CLE is the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame. If you're a music buff, it's the spot to be. Just down the road you have First Energy Stadium, home of Cleveland Browns Football. If you head toward the Lake (Erie) you can catch a C-Town baseball game at Progressive Field or watch the Cavaliers play basketball in RMF Fieldhouse. Sitting on Lake Erie, Cleveland experiences all 4 seasons and it's a great spot to head out of town via boat.

Here's my challenge breakdown:

----- By the Theme ----- O-H -- I - O
2 circles for the O's
2 Borders for the H
1 Strip of paper, strip of Washi for the I

----- By the Numbers ----- 1796
Use 1, 7, 9, or 6 on your layout... (1796 year established)
You can use a 1 word title, 7 lines of journaling, 9 stars and 6 photos or
whatever combination you want to use. You can use the numbers in
journaling

----- By the Color ----- Red or Orange
Our biggest sports team have red or orange uniforms so these colors
say OHIO!

Welcome to my Staycation! I hope you'll play along.

Talking VSBN20MayC -- Welcome to Cheryl's House

TITLE: Welcome to Cheryl's House
Keyword: VSBN20MayC
Date: May 2, 2020
Challenge #3 .... hostess Cheryl  (SCS Motherload)

Welcome to Cheryl's House!



My house has a ton of a few things: windows (26 plus 10 doors with glass panels in them), decorative trim, and paneling. It all adds up to a beautiful look that is a pain to keep clean, so for this challenge, help me enjoy the brighter side of my house by using one or more of the following three options:

CHALLENGE
1. Windows – use a window or something transparent (like my windows should be!) on your layout.
2. Decorative Trim – add some decorative trim to your layout (ribbon, lace, pompoms, scallops, etc).
3. Paneling – use vertical stripes on your layout.

Talking VSBN20MayD -- Welcome to Florida (Joyce Ann)

TITLE: Welcome to Florida
Keyword: VSBN20MayD
Date: May 3, 2020
Challenge #3 .... hostess Joyce Ann (scs AnniePanda)

Welcome to Joyce Ann's House! FLORIDA


Florida became the 27th state in 1845. (This was 101 years before I was born.) Nickname is the Sunshine State. (What is your nickname?)
As a tribute to Spain's Easter celebration "Pascua Florida" Ponce de Leon named the place he discovered. (I wonder if he found lots of hibiscus in bloom?) Interesting trivia - Gatorade was developed in Florida in 1965 and named after the University of Florida Gators. (The year I graduated high school in Ft. Lauderdale.)

CHALLENGE OPTIONS:

Pick at least one of the following. Get brave and pick two for your layout . Really be a hero in my eyes and pick all three! YAY!

#1. Use 2 photos and 7 other decorative items.
What are other items? All the embellishments, trims, stamps, dies, bling, etc. Example that I might use is a doily, piece of ribbon and 5 sequins.

#2. Sunshine.
Use your imagine, anything goes. Sunshine in your photos? A Sun embellishment? A sunburst design? Use the color somewhere that we can readily find. Up to you.

#3. Use flowers.
Anyway, anywhere, anyhow!

Optional Bonus: For the trivia option you are to think "drink" or "Alligator". Use one or the other. A drink may appear in a photo or as an embellishment. Or use an image of an alligator, or any other animal, either in your photo or added on.

Talking VSBN20MayE - Welcome to 'Straya

TITLE: Welcome to 'Straya (Jayne's House)
Keyword: VSBN20MayE
Date: May 5, 2020
Challenge #3 .... hostess Jayne (scs Ozpom)

Welcome to 'Straya! (Australia)

Here’s some facts about ‘Straya:

It has a wide variety of landscapes, with deserts in the centre, tropical rainforests in the north-east, and mountain ranges in the south-east.

The Australian Alps get more snow than the Swiss Alps.

The Great Barrier Reef in Qld is the largest eco-system in the world made up of nearly 2,500 individual reefs that are visible from space.

There are over 60 separate wine regions in ‘Straya

‘Straya is home to 21 of the world’s 25 most venomous snakes

There are more sheep than people in ‘Straya. We also have 1 million camels that roam wild in our Deserts.

Green & Gold are our national colours

Our National coat of arms depicts a Kangaroo and an Emu to show a nation moving forwards. Neither animal can move backwards easily.

Most deaths in ‘Straya are not from snakes, crocodiles or spiders but from the box jellyfish

CHALLENGE:


Take inspiration from ‘Straya and create a page taking inspiration from at least 2 of the following:

- Green & Gold on your page including patterned papers

- As ‘Straya is supposedly the oldest continent, use something that you first purchased for scrapping or craft…a tool, stash or use a technique you first learnt

As ‘Straya is sometimes also known as the Last frontier, use something that - you only purchased in the last 3-6 months

- As the world’s 6th largest country, use either 6 embellishments or 6 photos

- Use colours that are opposite on your colour wheel. Alternatively use shapes that are not the same. For example if you have a square photo on your page, also incorporate one in a circle or triangle. Use things that are opposites or create a Then & Now page.

Talking VSBN20MayF - Welcome to Jayne's House

TITLE: Welcome to Jayne's House 
Keyword: VSBN20MayF
Date: May 5, 2020
Challenge #3 .... hostess Jayne (scs Ozpom)

Welcome to Jayne's House

 G’Day my scrappy mates. Welcome to ‘Straya as we locals say. It’s also known as Down Under, The Lucky Country or Oz. We abbreviate a lot as we like efficiency or maybe we are just pure lazy. Here are some facts about ‘Straya:


Founded in 1788 when the Poms (British “Prisoners of Mother England”) sent their convicts here it is the largest country in Oceania and the world’s 6th largest country by total area. If you drove from Perth in the West to Brisbane in the East you would need to cross a desert and it would be similar to driving from Madrid to Moscow.

You can fly from Perth to Melbourne faster than you can fly from one end of Western Australia (WA) to the other. WA makes up 1/3 of ‘Straya’s size. I live in the city of Perth in the West and we are known as Sandgropers. Each State has their own unique name for their citizens. WA is also known as the State to “Wait Awhile”. It is also the most isolated city in the world, and the sunniest capital city in the world with an average of 8 hours of sun per day, year-round. Perth became known as the City of Lights when John Glenn saw the lights from space.

When I think of Oz, I think of brown land, blue skies and lots of beaches. It would take around 29 years to visit one new Aussie beach every day. There are 10,685 of them! Four out of 5 Aussies live less than 50km from the coast.
 

CHALLENGE #2: 

Find inspiration for your page/s from either: 

A song about sunshine, the beach or using sunburnt country colours.  Bonus if you add coral or things found in the ocean.

Landscapes…..e.g. a memory of snow and snow capped mountains, a holiday in a tropical area or rain forest, a memory of mountain ranges or a desert, or items from any of these regions that work with your LO

Talking VSBN20MayI - Welcome to Stafford, MO!

TITLE: Welcome to Stafford, MO!
Keyword: VSBN20MayI
Date: May 8, 2020
Challenge #9 .... hostess Amy (scs ShirleysGirl)



Welcome to Stafford, MO!








Strafford is really just a small town outside of Springfield, MO which is the 3rd largest city in this state.



But, since I don't really live in either city I am focusing more on my little space in this big bold world.


We are blessed to live in the country on 20 acres. We don't farm our property for our livelihood, though we do have two horses, two dogs, and a lot of wildlife. I live a little ways off the road and have a long driveway lined on both sides with a white vinyl fence. It is beautiful, but quite a lot of work to keep it clean. There is always something that needs to be tended to and never a shortage of grass to cut, trees to trim, fence fixing, trail tending, etc. If you have noticed from my pages over the years we have quite a group of family and friends who are always up to shenanigans, which often take part at my house. We have a swimming pool, four-wheeler, pool table, bar, so it is easy to say that we work hard and play hard, too. So these are the things that inspired my theme.

CHALLENGE:  


Choose any one of the three different themes to work into your page or combine them together if you so choose.


Theme One
: "Fence" in your page by using a border on at least 2 sides. You can use a punch, stickers, paper, die cuts, stamps, washi tape whatever you have to make your border 



Theme Two:
"Outdoorsy" add stamps, stickers, images from your pictures or designer paper to bring alive an outdoor element. Such as animals, trees, sunshine, sunset, clouds, country life...whatever brings that inspiration to life

Theme Three: "Work Hard/Play Hard" Use the letters to guide your inspiration and choose something that represents each letter in your layout. The ones listed are only suggestions to get you going, feel free to add your own that represent each letter.


H: hexagon, holiday, hearts, heat tool, (Tim)Holtz product
A: Alphabet, antiques, angled photo, animals
R: Red, rectangles, round, raised, rubber stamp
D: Die cut, dark color, dye ink, designer paper



Welcome to my Staycation! I hope you'll play along.
