We have all heard that laughter is the best medicine and we all have funny stories to tell and share and scrap don't we?
Well now we have a challenge for them too.

This is the first monthly Let's Laugh challenge - dedicated to all those people and moments in our life that have made us laugh.

Each month there will be a theme to scrap to and there may be or may not be twists and extra challenges along the way.

There may even be prizes from time to time. Winners will be randomly selected from all participants.

All you have to do is create a layout that fits the theme and post it in this thread. Share your stories, share love and don't forget to laugh.

Here is the first challenge theme.
"We don't really grow up. We just learn how to act in public"

There will be a prize this month - something from my personal stash.

This is an open all month challenge. All entries taken through the 28th.

Happy Saturday to you...staying inside and scrapping...watching the much needed rain out the window and sipping chai latte.

Here's mine....my silly girls. They didn't kill me when I showed them this so I guess it's ok after all.

No pic but I thought the topic was funny.

Dh's best man threw him a "Man Shower" - mainly to mock us girls for having a bridal shower. They did manly things (eat pizza/wings/fries/drink beer and play video games), he got manly gifts (video games, ax, lawn chair, tools, etc - even a dead fish) and his cards were sympathy cards or get well cards! Men!

so glad you have a sense of humour about it Amanda - I know some girls who would not have had. I think it is great that you scrapped it. Although i would definitely keep the person in mind who gave him the dead fish and find a way to get even lol

Mary - re Kissing the Cod (I am from the East Coast in Canada - Nova Scotia but lots of my family married Newfoundlanders)

Kissing the cod is a tradition that began in and continues to occur in Newfoundland, Canada.[1]
The tradition involves a codfish as well as a type of rum referred to a "Screech". It is traditionally used to welcome newcomers to the island. This can be also referred to as a "Screech-in". The ceremony may be performed at pubs such as Trapper John's on George Street, St. John's[2] or a travel guide or local family may perform the ceremony. So to begin, you must have a Newfoundlander present for a ceremony. Then you must get your shot of screech ready for consumption. At this time the cod must be kissed. Once this task is finished you must answer the question “Is ye a Screecher?”. The reply to this is "Deed I is me old cock, and long may your big jib draw!".[3] This can be translated as “Yes indeed, my friend, long may your big sail (i.e. jib) draw wind”, or “may there always be wind in your sails." Afterwards the shot of screech must be consumed. At this time the newcomer is accepted in, and receives a certificate from the Royal Order of Newfoundland Screechers.[3]

Thanks for that Tammy - so now you are a Screech huh? At least that cod wasn't a real one.

Funny Faces By Juansmom

Cristina kept making this horrid little face! This challenge reminded me of the line in the 80's movie "One Crazy Summer", where the little girl was told if she kept making these faces and someone slapped her on the back, her face would freeze like that....and sure enough it happened!!

Finally finished mine - "We don't really grow up. We just learn how to act in public" - by hiding behind photo op props! When I took these two pics I had a film camera so DH had NO IDEA what he was standing behind!

Hi Angela,

Open your gallery in one tab and this forum in another.

In your gallery - Open the one you want to enter. To the right you should see the "Embed" box-click on it and another box will pop up.

When the Link It box appears select IMG and how large you want your image to appear in the forum (I usually select the largest one).

You should also see a box with url.... and click in the box so it turns green and press your ctrl + C keys at the same time. (Do not close the tab)

Next click on the forum tab and scroll to the reply box (like you do to add comments) then press your ctrl + V keys at the same time and you will see a lot of rows appear that start with the url.

Press preview below to see how it looks. If it looks the way you want then click Add Post.

I usually add my comments in the box before I add my image.

Hope this helps!
