Task Five, 7th Jan
I don't know about you but when I scrap I tend to use my newest purchases only.

For today's task I want you to search your supplies for a Scrap Girls collection that you bought about two years ago or more.  It can be a retired collection but it does need to be by a Scrap Girls Designer (past or present).

Not been scrapping that long? Where have you been? Don't worry. just find the oldest collection you can. 

Pick carefully, as you will be required to use it this week.

Like Carla, I have no idea when I purchased what! (Yes, I know I could dig into my purchase history, but life's too short. :D ). Anyway, I found Syndee's Creative Spirit which was the Scrap Girls Club just about two years ago, so I'll go with that.

Here is mine so far. I have a few photos in mind to go with the papers, so I hope it works.

What a fun month but not sure if I'll get much done as I'm enjoying the outdoors at the moment in the sunshine :)

I have a spreadsheet with my purchase history arranged by year on separate sheets so will check out something. I have chosen Syndee's Souvenir Collection. I bought it in 2015.

You’re so organized!

I could not find a collection in my purchase history - just overlays and styles from this perioud 2 years ago - but I do know that Visionary is one of my oldest collections. So I'm going with that one. (I had a few hard drive crashes so nothing shows up older than July 2018). I hope I made the right choice... (I could cheat and look but I won't).

I chose a photo of Brooke from Christmas Eve when she opened a gift from her aunt and uncle and was very excited to get books!

I adjusted the lighting on the photo and added  a stroke. I also changed one of my original papers and then adjusted the saturation to match Brooke's shirt.

I'm using a beach photo which I altered by using an impressionist effect, from a plug-in program. Fun! I might need to do what Carla did and adjust my bg paper color slightly as I'm not sure I love the navy with my photo. We'll see.

Thanks, Carla! Brooke looks adorable with her books, too. Yay Brooke, liking books!! PS -- I really enjoy the thumbnails in our slow scraps so curious me gets a peek at what everyone is designing. :D

I found this quote. It's a little long but it really speaks to me:

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.
Henri Nouwen

That's a beautiful quote and will work well with your photo!

Here is my quote, after searching and searching!

"Sleep is good," he said. "And books are better." ~George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings, 1999

Which is fitting since Brooke read before bed and ended up staying up later than planned because she couldn't put the book down!

Diane & Carla they are great quotes.

Here is my quote.

“Land was created to provide a place for boats to visit." ~ Brooks Atkinson
