My Rainbow Dreams - Heritage Challenge posted Jan 22, 2009

For the heritage challenge this week, we were supposed to use a photo of us in a sport, or organization, or group...and to journal about how that experience affected us.

I fell in love with the new Kraft papers that Fancy Pants is putting out for CHA, but I couldn't wait for those papers to do this challenge, so I made my own. Used a chipboard star from Magistical Memories and cut out the fun rainbow. This is my first attempt at paper piecing!

Journaling is hidden behind the photos and reads: Every first and third Monday from the ages of 12-20, this is where you would find me, almost without fail. Rainbow Girls was not an organization that the popular girls joined...it was a little too straight laced for them. But I was a proud member and it's where I grew up. I learned that I was good at public speaking and really good at memorization. When I became Worthy Advisor, it taught me so much about organization, time management and party planning! We learned more about meeting, helping and serving others than most teenagers ever do. I got to choose my own service projects...buying Christmas gifts for kids at Mary Graham Hall (a local home for kids whose parents were in trouble). I learned all about fundraising and how generous the world could be when you just reach out to help those in need. I met girls who became sisters and some who changed my life. I love this photo with me, enjoying the limelight and Cathy beaming from the sideline, fully supportive and so proud. We may not have been snappy dressers (although, at the time, I must admit I LOVED that hoop skirt!) but we were good, true friends, trying our best to grow into young women who could make a difference in the world. Photos are from 1979.

I am getting such great Ideas from the gallery today. I looked at your layout and thought "OH Bill'S BEADS!" My brother, back in the 70s, wore a strand of turquoise beads everytime he played tennis. I wanted to give them back to him - he's 50 now, but he said no. (I think he was embarrassed) So I'll scrap tennis photos of him wearing them and string the necklace where you have your aqua pompoms. THANKS!!!
