Feeling The Warmth On Our Faces.

Today I'm sharing my take on the mood board challenge at Jot Magazine this month.
There is nothing like the rush of leaving it to the last two days to get it made and posted one my blog, as of midnight to night the challenge is over. 

I love the colours of this board they remind me of summer and all the beautiful warmer weather we had last year and hopefully this year.  So with that in mind I had a lovely photo of Grace enjoying the sun at Cornenlian Bay last summer.

Meme Scheme

It's not often I get photos of my eldest son (Shannon) and it's not often I get a nice normal photo. But then again what is normal when you have a 17 year old that hates the camera and hates the fuss about photos.   


So the other morning before he left for school he popped his head into my scrap room to say goodbye, I grabbed my camera and snapped away like a frantic mother trying to get that one nice normal photo.


Well 20 photos later, we said our good byes and I popped my camera back and thought, yes finally a nice photo of my boy. 

I went through the photos and this would have to be the shot that expresses the best of  our Shannon.


Yes we have our own Grumpy Cat, but ours is a Grumpy Teenager!

How do you get that one simply nice photo of your child/teenager?

Who Is This Herman?

Who is Herman the German friendship cake?

Last week Lance and I where given this container of smelly, bubbling mixture, and unknown to us we had no idea what it was. But after a little bit of research, and reading the sheet provided to us,  we found out that this the smelly, bubbling goo was to be turned into a cake and a mixture we would share with other friends. 



I was amazed to find a web site all about Herman the German friendship cake, and I also found out that a few of my friends had already received this cake mixture. I felt as though maybe I had my head in sand. We where giving a "chain letter" cake.
In my research about Herman I found that he was popular way back in the 1970's  and still today this cake was being pasted on to other.  
So this made me think how old was my Herman the German Cake?


I never found out how old our mixture was and in the end I wasn't bothered to know and even the kids weren't to fussy either. All we wanted to do was to eat it, and pass our bit of  Herman on to others.


And how Yummy he was! 

So if someone says to you have you every tried Herman the German friendship cake and would you like too? Don't say no, don't be afraid or suspicious just say yes please and keep passing this weird but yummy "chain mail" cake on.

Scrapbooking gives us a chance to document those very special photos  that we shall cherish forever. 
This layout has one of those very special photos that I shall hold closely to my heart.






This photo of my Grandmother (86) wearing my daughters husky hat, is so precious to me.
