way UP there!

A few days ago there was a post one of the message boards asking if other scrapbookers looked up stuff in their old albums.  The question got a resounding "yes!"  I use ours like an almanac.  I wanted to do this page because it captured an around-the-house event but also to record how we got Lenny up on the roof without bending the guttering this time round. I'm sure we'll have to do this again sometime.

I think I've mentioned that my husband doesn't care for heights.  (My personal nemesis is water.  I'm not frightened, but I get seasick on most any sailing craft large or small.)  Climbing up on the roof to fix the television antennae was not Lenny's idea of a good time.  Even worse, we didn't know exactly what was wrong and it took 4 trips up there with trips in between to Radio Shack to finally get good reception again.

The page is for Two Peas Scrapbook Stamping challenge this month to stamp and color.  The little truck from Stampin' Up!'s Loads of Love's set is colored with watercolor crayons and markers.  I also used markers on the lettering and the grass and flowers.  Backing the real truck up to the roof squashed a few things. I like to do my coloring on watercolor paper for easier blending.

Thanks for your visit today!

  1. Really great layout! I especially love the title with that bright splash of colour. My scrapbooking is woefully behind, but you are inspiring me with all your wonderful pages. I am getting at it tonight for sure!

  2. Teehee, love this page.
    I love seeing the everyday scrapbook pages.

    My hubby won't admit it but I know he doesn't care for heights either. If there is a home project that calls for being up high, it is I up there on the ladder. He says he is stronger to hold the ladder, lol.

  3. What a nice page! I love it...TFS!!!!

  4. this is great memory lisa-I love your scrapbook pages-and what a way to capture monumental events-I have been trying for 2 years to complete a book for my son. My cardmaking always seems to take top billing
