Our Family History in FARMING - for Scrap the Boys Challenge March 2013

SCRAP THE BOYS for March 2013
2 Photos 6x4 or smaller
Washi Tape

A part of my Family History and Heritage is the way my family used to farm...
It is amazing how the Industrial Revolution changed and advanced, and we are now seeing a similar transformation with Technology.
I have included 2 Photos; extended the Barbed Wire Fence each side, behind the horses with Chipboard Barbed Wire, which was used for fencing; The Name "Our Family History" is also from Chipboard.  The 2 music strips are Washi Tape and I misted the Gold Inked Title "Our Family History" Title as well as misting a clock in the bottom right hand corner.  There was also some other mist on the edges.

Thankyou for looking. I really enjoy my Scrapbooking.

Hale's Memoirs for 18 months

These are the pages of a scrapbook which I was asked to make up for a couple who came to Gladstone, Australia to serve a Mission (all costs covered by themselves) for their church from 1st September 2011, leaving for home to Utah, USA on 22nd February, 2013.

A couple who Cherish each other, Have Happiness, Joy & Love.

A day out to a local country show at Mt Larcom held on 23rd June 2012.

A couple went out for a DAY 4 Wheel Driving, but ended up bogged and were stuck from Saturday till Monday morning when a lady drove from Bundaberg, found them and pulled them out.  Others went out on Sunday to find them, finished up bogged themselves and were told by the police to get out of it and get back home.  An interesting weekend for all involved.

Happy Rock Trivia Night conducted by Richard Barton which was an absolute Fun Night.  There were 4 teams each straining their brains for answers.  "The Rappers" were the final winners who received a large box of Favourite Chocolates.

One of the things that "The Hales" noticed different about us Aussies, is the way we cut words short and in a lot of cases put ie's and y's on the end of of a work and we all know what it means.  Here is part of the words that they picked up on....  The List Is Growing!

The JACARANDA TREE.... Flourishes and Thrives in most parts of Australia.
