Half Way Done

Here's the first half of my ABC Scrapbook for 2010.  I found a bunch of these little 6x6 scrapbooks online and have enough to do one more year.  The pictures are from the collage pages I got from Walgreen's.  Each collage contained anywhere from 15-20 pictures.  The first 13 pages contain 57 pictures.  I hope to get that many or even more in the second half of the alphabet.  When I get stumped on a letter, I have to become creative.  Like for L, I called that page Long Necks, for the swans.  The letter I was another hard one, so it's with pictures of flowers starting with I.  Q, X and Z are always challenges too.

Love them! Question...Jim with the bear. Is it alive???

JennyD said...

Gosh, these are all marvelous, Cindy! Now I know why your page always looks so good and put together -- you have the knack. I'm still afraid to even try a 2 column; such a chicken heart.
I'm waiting to see what answer you give about Jim and the bear, too. I'm sort of hoping it's a real friendly little bear and just relaxing with Jim...probably not though.
XOXOXO

And the answer is...no, it's not alive. Jenny, I know how much you dislike hunters, but this is something Jim has done all his life. He enjoys everything about it...the anticipation, talking with the guys about it and most importantly eating wild game.

Actually it's no different than people going fishing, it's the sport of outsmarting the game and being at the top of the food chain. Hunting and fishing is a main source of food for many people in the more depressed areas of our state and it's good food too! 100% organic, free range and all that stuff.

I'm not complaining; I know it's a fact of life (or death) and I know many, many men who hunt. I even have to admit that I can cook venison in lord knows how many ways and it's tender as butter. I read too many Bambi books as a kid. Now all I can picture is some animal family waiting on dad or mom to come home and...well, you get the picture. I'm just too soft. As for fishing, I can't even tell you how many years I did that and LOVED it. Then, out of the blue, that blasted thought crept into my head again and I tossed all the fish out of the boat, crying and apologizing all the way. Lol, I need help. Have to say, though, that bear had a really happy look on his face ;)

and PS/ I'm a big fan of the Jim and Cindy family. Always will be.

To Cindy at Appplestone Cottage...These aren't digital scrapbook pages. I still scrapbook the old fashioned way, with paper, scissors and glue. I know I'd love digital scrapbooking, but I already spend too much time on the 'puter.
