Shimelle's Online Scrapbook Weekend - Starting point challenge

This afternoon I have completed another of Shimelle's Online Scrapbooking Weekend challenges.

This time I have done the 'Starting Point' challenge. Shimelle gave us a sort of sketch but it was the start of a layout she had done. The challenge was to use her 'Starting Point' as a starting place for our pages.
This was Shimelle's 'Starting Point'
This is my 'Starting Point'

And this is my finished page  --- >

The journalling reads:

In Kansas you can hear the trains long before you see them. Will and I waited in vain at this level crossing hoping to see the train that we could hear!

To see all Shimelle's challenges go to her blog here  but hurry the challenges close at midnight tonight, although the sketch of the week is open till Tuesday


  1. Great interpretation Karen, you have done so well with all the layouts. I am sure you have made more than me now :)

  2. I love this page, and I am liking the use of maps:) I have used them on cards but never on a LO so I may try that at some point.

  3. couple of great photos there too, well done

  4. This was my favourite to do of Shimelle's challenges and you have made a super page of it.

  5. American trains are amazing! My Dad and I used to count carriages in Arizona. :)
