The journaling (PULL tab) beside the picture on page 1...
By the age of 17 Lee Lahti, his brother Stuart and cousins, Dale with brother Jamie Peck went into the service. Lee served in the Army and discharged after about a half a year. This was because he had a 
severe on the train on the way to Kansas.
Brother, Stuart also in the Army, was stationed in Portway, Kansas. After Lee had gotten home he and 
mother Hilda went to visit him in their 1947 Studebaker commander. Stuart was an electrician for the radios for the most part. He came home after the War.

I have been with the artist at EIM since the beginning of the year.  
Seeing so much wonderful art that I thought...
why not use inchie art on pages.
Since I have been working on these pages and Lee is a drummer, Liz's rhythm inchie was perfect. I emailed her for permission with my thought in hand. With joy she said yes with attachments of her rhythm inchie...
Thank-you Liz...totally liked working with your inchie!

The Lahti boys of Brownsmead, Oregon...

had a love for Dogs within their lives.

 Going through someone else's pictures and looking for some sort of order has been a challenge in it's self. Although...when you know the person in some sort of way you get to know them, the family and whom they are related to...and it just might be you!

The Lahti boys of Brownsmead, Oregon...part 1...

As part of my care for the elderly I help them get their life's in a scrapbook/Genealogical form.
With work in progress it was time to make a page 
and the need for inspiration!!

With heartfelt Thanks in what I do "do”… it pulls from my material items but rewards my spirit.  It is a one on one, work in progress that could only be done by family, friends or someone like me. There are so many yet so few that takes the time to do it. I can’t seem to stop doing it. 

I Love it for my love of the art goes right into their books and hearts. It is incredible how they respond to the love that I put into "Their Life" that has been important to them throughout.  I have gotten to know friends and family that I have seen or heard about growing up…and then there they are. We laugh together, cry together and share life together, even if such a short time.

I would not like to leave the memories of life of these few that I have lost.

One day it will be my turn and will hope to have my life in a scrapbook for those that “Knew me” and for those that wondered.

Winning the Top 3 award
 Creative Craft Challenges
 are looking for the use of LACE, I used a paper lace
 Now that "page 1" is finished I am looking forward to the next sketch and recipes for the pages to follow!!

Rhythm inchie…

My Mother, Eileen is very talented. One of those talents is her beautiful voice accompanied by her piano & organ playing.
Growing up I listened often and was memorized as I watched her totally enjoying herself. 
As a young girl I was intrigued by that…tick tock coming from a gracious piece atop the piano. 
The inchie below is submitted to: Every Inchie Monday 
come join the weekly fun for a whole year!!
I learned that mother was keeping time with what is called a Metronome. I tried to play but could only play by sound so it went no further. What us kids did like is when Mom played that special song...we would twirl around until we got dizzy...memories!
 The Piano, stool and Metronome were my great grandparents. I have no idea where the Piano and stool are but I was fortunate to have gotten the Metronome handed down to me by my father, Francis.
In doing some research I have found that it is from within the 1920’s.

May the Rhythm from it carry on to future generations…

Angela Sidlo * Tai Chi * Thank-you

Angela organized a gift to the local communities, Tai Chi class for the elderly for free. In hearing about this, even though I am not elderly, although some times feel like it, I went to the first session. I needed to pay for my young age...understandable! The classes have been wonderful. It has been nice to see people that one does not see all the time and to connect to those you don't know.  Thank-you to Angela

"The Journey", card is a double emboss cut out by Spellbinders.
I have created this by coloring in a stamped image with Copic markers.
Fussy cut each stamped image then took each color marker to darken the edges.
Hand embossed and then layered with foam-dots within and out.
