Remember Good Times


As soon as I saw this sketch at "The Memory Nest"  I immediately thought PL cards.   So today I started looking through cards to see what I could use as a title.  I really wanted to also use a Bingo card.  I had one that said Road Trip and I knew I could find something for that but it was an Orange colored one and I wasn't coming up with any PL cards to go with it that said anything.   So I pulled out the Remember bingo card and found the Good Times PL card immediately and knew exactly what I would do.    In July we took a road trip to Michigan and on part of the trip stopped at Boyne Mountain, MI where Dad and Mom spent many winter skiing vacations.   So I picked these two pictures and printed them 3x4 to go with the PL card size.   One of Dad in front of the Snowflake Lounge where they went every night after skiing and dinner.    Then also one at the top of the mountain where Dad and my brother Bruce were looking at the map of ski slopes and Dad was telling us about slopes were in use then and that he skied on.   So "Remember --- Good Times" was perfect.
Even though we were there in the summer I used an old winter paper collection.   Bo Bunny-Snowy Serenade.   I have the sketch here below for you to see and then you can click HERE to read more about the details of the challenge and other challenges at "The Memory Nest" this month.

Since I'm still filling in my vacation albums from various trips over the year, this vacation layout will also work great with the challenge #205 just announced today at "Lasting Memories Layout Challenges"   This week they are focusing on Vacation Memories.   So this was perfect for me because I will always have this memory of being able to take Dad back to where he had such great times about 60 years ago.    There is still time to enter this challenge and the other 3 challenges for the month of August at Lasting Memories, check out the details HERE on this one and then look at older posts for any others you want to enter this month.   There are some great ones.
