For many summers my kids have gone to the VBS (Vaction Bible School) at the nearby Prosestant Church.  Most of our kids from our Catholic church go to this VBS.  They host the week and now we Catholics go and help out.  For the past several years it has been my "job" to lead the Bible acting part of the morning.  In this photo you can see the giant whale we made for Jonah and the whale story.  We made it from plastic with a fan attached to one end where the tail would be.  In this photo it is my daughter, her cousin, and her friend who helped me make it.
This Lo was inspired by the April 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches.

World Trade Center

I just found this photo from New York City where they are rebuilding where they World trade Center was.  We went there on vaction in July 2011.  I hadn't used this photo on a scrapbook page yet, so here it is.  I used the April 1st sketch from Creative Scrappers to create.  I had an old kit that had several circle emebllishemnts so I was able to use these on my LO. 

Thanks for looking and if you go to New York City you may be able to see the completed World Trade Center.

Scrapbook Challenges: The Everyday

During the month of April we are scraping things that we do everyday at Scrapbook Challenges. My challenge to you is to create a LO of something that you do often and to use the word TODAY in your title.
We have snow every winter where I live and building a snowman is something that we build every year. When my kids were little I was the one to do most of the work. Now that my kids are older they build the snowman in their own way. Last winter my son used a bucket to mold the snow and built this snowman using several bucketfulls.

You may live where the snow has just gone away or where you are getting ready for snow to begin. Or maybe you never have any snow, if so lucky you!

Get your thinking caps on, look through your photos, or take a new one, and show me something that you or a family member does often. It might be for a particular season, holiday or event.
Make sure to upload your creation to the Gallery for all of us to see and link it to the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win the April prize package!

Don’t forget in order to be eligible for this month prize package all layouts and projects must be uploaded by 11:59 pm PST on the last day of the month.
