IE Reveal..Childhood Memories


Inspiration Elevator

You may recall that the purpose of this challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. You can view all of the challenges our new Inspiration Elevator Blog, here.

This month's challenge is issued by the super talented, Lisa Moen. Here's what she had to say in her very own words:

"I have been thinking lately, that I have only done one layout of my childhood and realized that maybe some day, my kids or grandkids would enjoy looking at a few more pages and learning about my siblings, my parents and I.
So my challenge for you this month is to create a page about a childhood memory of yours. It can be a good, a bad, a funny, a photoless or whatever you choose kind of layout.
Just remember to add journaling to tell the story behind your childhood memory.
Can't wait to see your projects!"

Such a fun challenge, I did not have any pictures from my childhood and had to have my mom send a few.  Loved this one that she sent of my brother and I.  Brings back memories of summer fun, summer squabbles and the wonderful childhood we both had.  We lived on the best block with tons of kids, lots of parks and pool nearby and it certainly was a simpler time to be a little kid.  Thanks Lisa for such a fun and inspiring challenge.


 I hope you will stop by and see what they have created:
