I am Lei-Out of the day at Scrapable.net


I am SO EXCITED! I woke up this morning and went to Scrapable.net's home page and saw the lay out above was chosen Lei-Out of the Day at Scrapable.net. I did this last night as part of a speed scrap using the Artisan Guild's April Kit and the Scrappin Cop's Doodle Alpha. A speed scrap is where you get new directions every 10 minutes and create your lei-out during the timeframe of the scrap. Here's what they said about my lei-out and the instructions we were given:

This beautiful lei-out is the creation of a speed scrap today at Scrapable.net. Here is the lei-out recipe:

1. Choose one photo, one photo only. It must be black and white.
2. Your photo must be framed - however you like.
3. Choose a shape and clip at least 3 of these shapes out of paper. Go ahead and pick your background paper too.
4. There must be a flower on your page somewhere.
5. There must also be stitching and it must be vertical!
6. Your journaling must include a quote and your title must be included in your journaling.
7. That’s it…finished. Add any extra embellishments you want, add shadows, dates, etc.

QueenShakeNBake hit a homerun with this challenge! She chose a fabulous photo, wonderfully coordinated colors and elements and how cool is her title? One technique she used that really adds interest is manipulated shadows. As one of the recipe requirements was to use vertical stitching, she chose to “stitch” down her paper elements. She played with the shadows on these elements to make them appear to partially lift off the page. Overall a very beautiful, creative lei-out!

June 6, 1944, D--Day Invasion at Normandy

June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, is considered the beginning of the end of World War II in Europe. On this day in history, Allied troops (approximately 156,000) invaded Western Europe, completely overwhelming the German forces.

While my father served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, he never talked about his experiences or where he had been. Now I wished I had bothered asking him about them.

Wesley enlisted on August 26, 1942. While searching Ancestry.com, I came across U.S. World War II Navy Muster Rolls and found my father, Wesley Earl Loghry, on MUSTER ROLL OF THE CREW was "change of resting" on the U.S.S. LST 383 on March 1, 1944, coming from BuPers C.L. 25 & 208-43. More research is needed to figure out what that means.

I became curious about the USS LST 383 and did some research. This ship was an LST-1 Class Tank Landing Ship which was built at Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. in Newport News, Virginia. It launched on September 28, 1942, and was com…

Immigrant Ancestors

With all the talk about immigration, immigrants, building a wall, or having to pass a test to come to the United States, I started thinking about my immigrant ancestors. They came for a variety of reasons, including to escape poverty, religious freedom, to avoid prosecution, and the promise of cheap land and a fresh start.

My earliest immigrant ancestors that I have found is probably one of the following:

Macuth Pratt who was born about 1595 and married in 1619 in  England, immigrated about 1637.John Pearson who was born 18 Jun 1615 in North Yorkshire, England who immigrated in  1637.Jeremie Swayne. No information is known about him other than he married a woman by the name of Mary and their son, Maj. Jeremiah Swayne was born on 1 March 1642/43 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, placing immigration before 1 March 1642.Thomas Starr who was born in 1565 in New Romney, Kent, England and died before 2 March 1640/41 in Dorchester, Norfolk, Massachusetts (no immigration record found), placin…

My Thornton Line

My maternal grandfather, Roy Clinton Thornton, was born at Berwick, Polk County, Iowa on 6 June 1885.  He was the son of  Martin Luther Thornton and Rebecca "Anna" Jones. He was employed as a miner at the time of the 1900 and 1910 U.S. Federal Census, living in the same household as his parents and siblings. At the age of 27, Roy or LeRoy, as some sources list him, married Anna May Rouse at Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa on 15 May 1912. Roy completed only six years of school. His occupation at the time of his marriage was listed as a coal miner.  Roy and Anna had the following children : Children of Roy Clinton Thornton and Anna Mae RouseWilliam Martin Thorntonb. 1 May 1913, d. 26 Nov 1957Carl Roy Thornton+ b. 30 Jan 1915, d. 23 Sep 1990Doris Lucille Thornton b. c 15 Nov 1916, d. 13 May 1918Russell Claude Thornton+ b. 19 Aug 1918, d. 20 Feb 1958Virgil Franklin Thornton b. 3 Jun 1920, d. 21 Oct 1962Kenneth George Thornton+ b. 12 Dec 1922, d. 19 Apr 1988Alta Neomi Thornton+ b.…
