my personal challenge

load 24 the hall started my own challenge to myself. my dad's 80th birthday i had done scrapped it but i had a lot of photos that were good but no reason to scrap them...till load 24 because they were all taken in the hallway. so i designed on my silhouette the background paper and had it sketch out 5 backgrounds that were the same but different colors...used the same sketch...but different photos. the first was posted for load 24 and 4 more was just completed. so i thought i would post them here since they were inspired by load 24

On May 16, 2013, I had to make a visit with the
hospital to have my 2nd permanent spinal cord
stimulator put in. After the first group of
pictures I have no memory of what happened.

But like a trooper Karilee took photos
because she knew I wanted to scrapbook

I was given drugs so I wouldn't get
sick. Papers to sign. Then party hat to
get the party started. The epidural was
first. Then twilight sleep. A bone in
my spinal cord had to be removed in
order to get the second lead in. All
went well.

load day 7

prompt: why

why this is my destiny

A little while after my beloved poodle Cece passed away.
Matt talked me into just looking around to see what
was around the pet stores. I missed Cece very much and
knew she could not be replaced. We decided to stop at a pet
store we had never been to before, the Animal House
in Cincinnati. I had very certain criteria about if I ever got
another dog. Had to be a girl because I had a lot of dresses.
Could not be black like Cece and had to be a toy poodle.
So we walked in and right at the door after you
walked in was a cage with 2 poodles. They were brother and
sister.So they put them in a play area so I could watch
them for a little while. Then I made a mistake.
I picked up the little brown female. Well she laid her head
on my shoulder and snuggled up to me.
Matt walked up and said” not much of a selection we'll
go to a few more places tomorrow”So I replied as
I was walkingto the cash register. “Why?” I already found
my dog. And that is also why I named her Destiny.
It was meant to be.

the prompt: a red herring

When Karilee was 6
years old we
went fishing at a pay
lake near where
we live.

catch a 4 ½ pound

She did it with a

The only help she
needed was getting

someone else
had to hold it for
the photo.
