September 11 New Word Challenge at Bird is the Word and My challenge submission for OUAS

Hello everyone! Our 2 GDT this month, Helen and Vicky are both DT members for
Once upon a Sketch. As I looked through their blogs on Friday, I saw their take on their September 1st challenge. I had been meaning to join their sketch challenge, but I had been so extremely busy with our new DT members and making tags for all of them. And then I realized yesterday that my DT project for Bird is the Word, has some similarity to the . I will send the revised version of this to OUAS.

Here is the challenge at ONCE UPON A...SKETCH:
Journalling Criteria : A memorable year - Your title must be a year, and you must journal at least 2 lines on why this year is memorable for you. Examples: the year you got married, the year you graduated, the year you moved to a new house/country, the year you started a new job, the year your child was born, the year you lost someone dear. Your journalling can be in any language and any format (written, typed etc).

09-11-01...How can we forget? The date says it all..I was in Manhattan in 2000. We were walking towards Battery Park and I had to stop to take this picture. I am so glad I did. That was the first time I ever saw WTC and sadly the last time I ever saw it. There are no words to what had happened even 10 years had passed, it still fills us with deep sorrow and pain unimaginable.

This is also the reason I made my DT project for Bird is the Word. Our project was due yesterday, I searched everywhere for this picture. I had moved 5 times since this picture was taken and for some(amazingly)unknown reason, I had kept it and didn't lose it during all the move or destroyed when I got divorced in 2005.

Here is my project for BIRD IS THE WORD using the word "SHARE".

I used Tim Holtz Crackle Paint.
Alphabets by October Afternoon
Michael's Recollection "Love Letter" Paper Collection
Teresa Collins World Traveller Paper
Handmade flowers I made
Crocheted trims in beige and gray

Please visit BIRD IS THE WORD for more info on this challenge and how to upload your project. Also check the amazing work that our talented DT members made using the "share" word. The winner will receive a kit from
Tidbitz in Time kit club.

Thank you all so much for being here. Your visit is truly appreciated.

  5. I ADORE this page!! I was blown away when I saw it at BITW & what a clever subject to scrap considering the release date. Not to mention that you did it so spectacularly!! And those flowers - wow!! Put them in your Etsy shop! They are gorgeous!! One of my DT's - Pretty Paper Petals - is closing down their sales to the public to concentrate on wholesale - you should check it out and maybe do a similar thing as well as the tags, or even sell flower clusters already on a doily just like what you have here - they rock!!
