MID MONTH AUGUST - Cherryland Challenge

Post by sherelm »

Story of the Two Princesses of Cherry Land

Once upon a time there were two princesses that lived in a faraway land – Cherry Land. One princess – Princess Maraschino– was very dutiful to the laws of Cherry Land, and heeded all warnings given by her subjects and court. The other Princess, Princess SourCherry wasn’t evil, but more spiteful, and always did things a bit unconventional.

Aug/Sept 15 2014
The bright summer sun is shining all over Cherryland.  In the background, listening carefully, you can hear the splash of the pools, lakes, and streams with children enjoying the final weeks before they return to school.  Alas, it truly is nearing the end of the best season in the princesses’ minds.  This year for the first time they will be attending different schools.  As Princess Maraschino finishes her senior year at Cherryland High, her sister Princess Sour Cherry will begin as a freshman at Cherryland University.
With all this on their minds, the two sisters walked out into the palace gardens.  They were enjoying the beautiful colors and chatting about the year ahead. 
“It won’t be long until you are at the University as well, Maraschino. And it’s just during the day we won’t see each other, we will be together every evening.  Nothing else will change.”  Princess Sour Cherry always made light of any change.  Change was always harder for Maraschino – she just loved her family, life, everything the way it is in the moment. “Yes, but I’m still going to miss not seeing you at school.”  “Time,” she continued, “is what will change.” 
“No,” said her sister, “time is always changing, so it never really does change but continues.  Don’t be such a sorehead.  What will change are new friends, new places, and new things to talk about after school.”
So, which princess are you this time?  If you are Princess Maraschino and see the changes time brings, do a layout showing that in some way.  It can be a home you lived in, and now where you live.  It can be your puppy, and now he’s your older dog.  It can be your little baby who’s all grown up.  It can be anything that shows the effect of time.  You may combine this layout in another challenge that allows it. . . However. . . .
Now you KNOW Princess Sour Cherry is not a deep thinker.  She lives in the moment.  So for this one moment only?  I want you to do that page that you’ve been saving (time is a wasting!!)  and do it.  I don’t care what the subject is, nor what the colors, embellishments – nadda.  So ANY layout you do – it’s fine. You know you’ve been saving a layout/pix to do when the layout is perfect for it.  And here it is. And since it’s so loosey goosey – NO YOU CANNOT combine this challenge.  I mean – come on.  Even Sour Cherry can’t be that easy. 

Winner will receive a $5 gift card to ACOT. Deadline is September 18th and the winner will be chosen on September  19.  And of course you can do both Princesses to get your name in twice!  Good luck!!

I used Boomer Girls Designs kit called "Fire" to make this lay out. As a little girl I wanted to be on the fire department like my daddy. I got to live that dream as an adult!

I made the fans over 10 years ago and then got stuck.  (She's almost 18 now!)  So I made 2 double-layouts with them.  It's nice to have them scrapped!

I chose Princess Maraschino. My parent's dog Kandie celebrated her 14th birthday on August 17th. I paired it with a photo of her when she was just 4 months old.

For the Princess Sour Cherry Challenge to do a layout I've been saving. I've had these papers pulled and photos printed for a long time. Finally got some wrestling stickers to use for it. Image

Photos of oldest grandson Brady and his first year wrestling. I think this was his first meet too. December 2012. Image

Take 'em Down!
