November 2013 Imagination Challenge UPDATE with winner

Post by Ayla » Fri Nov 01, 2013 4:50 pm

We've had a lot of fun joking about my husband Bob, Fishie Bob our beta, Crabbie Bob the hermit crab, and Bob the Tree. So I got thinking about nicknames and the funny ways they come about. So....this month's challenge to is scrap about the nicknames of those around us.


I have a recent layout as an example...the story of Bob the Tree.

Image



And this layout is from a few years ago, about my daughter and one of my son's, nicknamed Beans (Ali) and Burrito (Callum).

Image



So...tell me about those nicknames! The ever hated rules:



* No combining layouts...lets get those stories told!

* Please post layouts here, as I love to see them, but I love seeing them all together too, so please also post in the proper category (I am at work, so will make the challenge category in the gallery tomorrow).

* Open to all avenues of expression, as long as you tell the story of the nickname/s.

* Entries due by 11:59pm November 30.

* Winner will be selected by random, to win either a GC or a prize from my stash.



* Most importantly of all....HAVE FUN!!!

EDITED: I completely forgot to make the gallery category, so please just post your layouts here, since we already have postings and I'd hate to make anyone go back!

EDIT 1/18/2014 - I apparently am brain dead, and never picked a winner. So...courtesy of random.org, citygirl22 wins this challenge! Your little gift will be on its way shortly.

Love this challenge! My DD#2 has the perfect nickname, and will be so fun to scrap!

This is a great way to scrap pics of her where I might just journal about how cute she is, but won't pose for the camera, etc. But to document how we call her "the Fuss" or "Fusser" will be great! Thanks for the challenge!

Sadly I was named much like Bob the tree. I can do myself for this, and it has a good story. Thanks Nancy!!

great challenge! I did a page once on all the names I called OLivia when she was a baby and it's still one of my favorite pages of her, and of all time. I've been wanting to do a page like it for Owen, so this will be great!

Great challenge Nancy! My doggies all have nicknames. I even have a two pager I did a while back of Cider and Boomer where I have a listing on it of all their nicknames. I have a nickname that we have called our dd since she was little, and we still use it. So I have a lot to choose from!

Here's my entry! My thinking while doing the layout was to start with a sweet little girl layout, then use items to make it look like a case file to show the way my DD's nickname fits her.

Image

Journaling reads: "She is more often happy than sad, but Dave really nailed it when he started calling Katie 'Fusser,' or 'The Fuss!' She is very independent and wants to do things her way, especially when posing for pictures!"

Oh my gosh! I forgot to make the gallery for this one! Tell ya what...let's just leave all the layouts here....we already have postings, it's probably easier to just post here.

Love how your picks of pattern paper echo the clothing he wore...so cute! Thanks for sharing the story and playing along with the challenge!

this is a great challenge! I actually have a page I did for Olivia several years ago with her nicknames, so of course I had to make one for Owen. Thanks for a great challenge!

Love that sweet little face, and definitely glad you saved all his nicknames. My kids still love hearing what we called them when they were little! Thanks for playing!
