ADSR Week 5 and Word Art Freebie

I guess I'm a little behind this week, was kind of busy at work. New project, lots to do. But I did manage to get two pages done this week and have another freebie for you.

Challenge #9 was to create a page with more than one generation and include lace, metal, a scanned thing and flowers. So I scrapped this great c. 1934 photo of some family members from Norway. The gent in the center with the white beard and the hat is my great-grandfather, Hans August Ahlsen. The lady on the far right is his sister Gerda. She would have been nabout 50 in this photo, right around my age. I note her striking white hair. Precisely the same as mine. This is the second Ahlsen family member that I have noted with the prematurely white hair (not grey, mind you, white). And all females. Two men, Hans August here and his father Olaves both had very white beard (and both wore hats in the only photos I have). My grandfather, Hans Olaus, died before he reached this age and my dad, Harold, never grew a beard. Ah, the genes, the genes!!!!!!

Next up was a Roadblock - only one scrapper to complete. Since my partner did the first one - this was all mine. Challenge was to ask at least five questions of the race partner and then scrap a layout about it. This was the first one that made me nervous. I scrap Disney and my family, cats and flowers! LOL Not other people! Yikes. Oh, and we could only use two designers. So I picked a collab kit and went outside of my box - using extractions, blending and "art" type elements. I knew I would get great answers from Bianca and wasn't disappointed!

So this will be the last week of ADSR and I'm kinda sad. Will need to be sure to continue to scrap at least two pages a week. Oh and I've been taking Project 365 photos since Jan 1st, so I will be able to catch up and start posting them.

In the meantime, a freebie Faith, Trust, Pixie Dust Word Art from my earlier Tinker Bell layout. Easily recolored, I am giving you both a vertical (in purple) and horizontal version (in black). Just didn't have time to convert the purple to black. Hope you enjoy it. Please give credit to Nancy at LilyFG Designs if you use it, and please do think about sending me a copy. And I would like to thank Brittney of Britt-ish Designs for the inspiration to make the word art for my layout.

Have a magical day!
