"Helping the Shore"


"Helping the Shore"

This layout covers three challenges! I started with Thursday's "fast & easy" Challenge, altering the template color a bit, then added Wednesday's HNC "favorite recent photo". Finished with Monday's "This Makes Me Smile" as this was a real feel-good story. My cousin grew up in Highlands NJ which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. She now lives in MA and when co-workers heard she was going to help clean-up they collected & donated so many items she packed her truck with barely room to sit! So much help was so willingly given it made me smile. :)
Journaling reads:
"Karen drove down from Massachusetts to the NJ shore after Hurricane Sandy. So many people in Needham donated items to help people in Highlands clean & rebuild that she arrived at our house with a packed truck & barely a space for her "Jersey Girl" teddy bear! A real "feel-good" story."
For this layout I used:
JRA Super 7 Spread
ASO SS Styles: Glitter 6401



    Oh, that is a real "feel-good" story, Marilyn! What a blessing it is that we have people like your cousin in this world! Love your photo in the leaf shape and your title "What a Wonderful World" is perfect for your journaling! Kudos to your cousin for having such a big heart and I know she will treasure this layout that you've done so beautifully!
    This photo - and your journaling - really capture Karen's spirit! She rolled up her sleeves and jumped in to help, and she brought smiles to a lot of people! I love the leaves here, especially the leaf frame. Great layout - and super journaling. And, good for you managing to include THREE challenges! :lol:
    What a fabulous story! God bless her and her co-workers for helping! Great LO, too!
    So pretty. And such a beautiful story. I like your journaling on the leaf. Really like your background paper. Great photos of the loaded truck and your cousin.
    the story is fabulous and the leaves add even more pizazz, great LO!
    Wonderful page and I really like how you used the leaves.
    Great story and fantastic LO. Love the glitter lined leaves
    What a wonderful story and you have scrapped it beautifully. Be sure to show it to her!
    Three cheers for Karen! I'm sure she was welcomed by the people who had to endure that dreadful storm.
    Love the way you adapted an Autumn page to work with your photos - the slightly cooler tones work well with your photo. Your cousin is a true wonder, how thoughtful and selfless of her to travel back to help clean up after Sandy, I am so pleased for you both that you managed to scrap this. It truly is a feel good story and deserved to be treated so carefully. Your leaf journalling and careful tweaking really make this page shine :-)
