Today is the beginning of the new challenges over at Lasting Memories for the month. We are having some fun with the challenges this month using some Unique National Holidays. Today's challenge is honor of Dec 3rd: National Roof Over Your Head Day :) Scrap about your home or someone elses home or any home in general. Or switch: Scrap about your home during the Holidays. Seeing Christmas lights would work.
Hi you all, this maybe troubling for some and that is not the idea for this layout. When the rain washes away and you take a look at what is left.... In 2004 we had to deal with Hurricane Ivan, he came in a week after Hurricane Jean came in. It wasn't a Katrina, but for this girl it was the worst flooding I have physically faced since I was a youngster seeing Agnes in 1972 and that was a flood that just rocked our area to a core that I still remember, even though our house didn't get flooded that year, we know of many that did. The prompt on LOAD10: Story: Tell of what you hold fast to for security Product/technique: Use a bold paper as a background frame revealed at the edge of your page Image: A photo that includes a house. This prompt I thought about and thought about and then it just came to me about doing a layout/theme album that I have been wanting to do for a long time: You don't know how secure
you feel in your home until something devastating happens to it. Nature
has a way to destruct your secured feeling. Thank you for this prompt, you got me going on a project I wanted to do for a long time:
Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day of appreciation for the things we
have, starting with the roof over our heads. For most of us, a roof over
our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the
elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is
as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our
country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street......
literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in
poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them
comfortable and safe. Spend a few minutes being thankful that you are
not homeless, and appreciating your roof and home today. Also make a
contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the
Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!
