SAY What!

Hello :) Today the features are up over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Layout challenges for the months so far. The newest challenge that was posted on Sunday was this fun color challenge:
But again.. each color challenge this month has a slight color twist.  Hope you check them out and join us.  
LMCB # 280 - The Blues
Here is the color scheme to follow this week...

My take on the challenge :)
This layout came about for LOAD13 prompt of Geography which has been an open prompt pretty much. As I thought about it through  the day/ I had nothing in mind for this!/ I don't know how but it came to me 
I thought it would be interesting to find out the Latitude and Longitude of the house. I got a whole lot more! Very interesting the information available online about your house :) If you follow the mark for google maps you will be at our neighbor's house not ours :)
That is how this layout was born so to speak :) It was fun to do, but weird to know that there is so much information about your house online :) I used part of last month's counterfeit kit and this month's kit for the layout. So cool that both kits are gellin together like that :)
I used the sketch over at Paper Issues for my layout inspiration
I turned to the right for my layout. Some close ups of my layout:
 I was surprised to see all this information online :) We started to figure out when the house was built when we tore down the one wall and a newspaper was attached to the wall with the date :) a very interesting find and I will be using that story in my flood album :) So there is a layout to come about that.
 Journaling block from a PL card the vintage traveler addition :)
 This was some information I found and really they think it's worth that much! Say What! Since we live in a flood zone, have been flooded numerous times I really be surprised if we would get that much for it :)
 If you follow google maps you'll never get to our house but the neighbor's house instead. We live where the blue dot is (google earth)
A picture of our homestead from Google Earth :) Where it says google on the picture next to that is the train tracks that split our house from the rest on 2nd Avenue. 3 plots there where the ground is dug up is where my husband gardens (his hobby :)
Thank you for stopping by today to see what I'm up too in my little corner of this big world :)


  1. AWESOME Layout! And COOL info! TFS and have a GREAT Day,
    Me-Ma Kim

  2. What an awesome thing to scrap about! Very interesting! Love your layout!

  3. OMGosh, what a super cool layout Tina! I love that you scrapped about this. I didn't know however that all this info was out there online. lol We probably don't know the half of what's out there! Hugs, Brenda

  4. Love it! Great way to document where you live! It's awesome how you wrote right on the print out (and who knew all this information was available online!)
    (FYI - Google can't even cope with our address, so I tend to not trust them too much when I'm trying to get anywhere new, LOL!)

  5. What a cool idea Tina! And you're right, it is kind of creepy that so much information is available online. I think I'm going to check on our house...
    Great job with the layout too. I like the wood veneer pieces you added and that tree paper is a terrific choice for the page.

  6. Really nice take on the prompts - fab page.

  7. Love your page!The documentation is awesome!

  8. You really did nail the color palette! Awesome documentation too! Way to go!
