Monday Feb 16Th Challenge

16 February 2015 - 10:58 AM

 

Everyone loves movies. Old movies, new movies, comedy, drama, suspense, animation, I just love 

movies.

 

For todays challenge I want you to choose a movie poster from 2014 to gain inspiration and create a 

layout. 

 

 

I used the poster of the Great Budapest Motel as my inspiration.

 

The cutest granddaughter ever.

Getting Old

12 February 2015 - 10:09 AM

Three sisters age 92, 94 and 96 live in a house together.
One night the 96 year old draws a bath, puts her foot in and pauses.
She yells down the stairs, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"
The 94 year old yells back, "I don't know, I'll come up and see."
She starts up the stairs and pauses, then she yells,
"Was I going up the stairs or coming down?"
The 92 year old was sitting at the kitchen table having tea
listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says,
"I sure hope I never get that forgetful." She knocks
on wood for good measure. She then yells,
"I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see
who's at the door."

Poem Of The Year.

03 February 2015 - 11:29 AM


The computer swallowed Grandma,
Yes, honestly its true!
She pressed 'control and 'enter'
And disappeared from view..
It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.
She must have caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.
I've searched through the recycle bin
And files of every kind;
I've even used the Internet,
But nothing did I find.
In desperation, I asked Mr. Google
My searches to refine.
The reply from him was negative,
Not a thing was found 'online.'
So, if inside your 'Inbox,'
My Grandma you should see,
Please 'Copy, Scan' and 'Paste' her,
And send her back to me.

2/2/15 Monday Random Challenge

02 February 2015 - 10:45 AM

Today we are going to take a trip to Paris, a city that is full of Artists. Some of my favorite are from the Impressionist era, or post impressionists, like Toulouse Lautrec, Monet, Seurat, Cezanne, and Renoir etc. I also love their different styles of painting, dots, or strokes, oils, sketches.

 

So today your challenge is to use paint brushes or painterly overlays to give your layout that painted look.

 

Please upload your LO's to the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.

 

Here is my LO Rain rain go Away. I used one of Cindy's painted overlays.

 EATING  IN  THE  FIFTIES

· Pasta had not been invented.  It was macaroni or spaghetti.

· Curry was a surname.

· A take-away was a mathematical problem.

· Pizza? Sounds like a leaning tower somewhere.

· Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time.

· All chips were plain.

· Rice was a milk pudding, and never, ever part of our dinner.

· A Big Mac was what we wore when it was raining.

· Brown bread was something only poor people ate.

· Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking.

· Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green.

· Cubed sugar was regarded as posh.

· Chickens didn't have fingers in those days.

· None of us had ever heard of yogurt.

· Healthy food consisted of anything edible.

· Cooking outside was called camping.

· Seaweed was not a recognized food.

· 'Kebab' was not even a word, never mind a food.

· Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days and was regarded as being white gold.

· Prunes were medicinal.

· Surprisingly muesli was readily available. It was called cattle feed.

· Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one.

· Water came out of the tap.  If someone had suggested bottling it and

 charging more than gasoline for it they would have become a laughing stock.

· The one thing that we  never ever  had on our table in the fifties  . . . were our elbows.
