Who Are They?
I have been really busy lately organizing the month long NSD celebrations we are having at Let's Scrap. We have such wonderful members that several of them provided the group with challenges, as did some of our Design Team members. There are lots of challenges, two new sketches and even a game of bingo going on for NSD 2011. Why not pop over and join in on the fun?
I decided to give member Betty Hornbrook's challenge a try. For it you had to do a layout using a Let's Scrap sketch with no pictures. In there place you could use a poem, bucket list, story etc. Here is what I came up with.
The poem I used is this one written by Pam Harazim
Strangers in the Box
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, or when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be passed away?
Make time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and Happy Scrapping!
