Each month, there will be a theme and a letter. Find something to fit the theme or the letter (or both!) The rules are loose - jsut make it fit

There may be months where there are special rules, but the only 2 real guidelines:
- you must have travelled out of your home city
- for the big countries - please break it down by State or City not the name of the Country (I see this applying to Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe)

So here we go:

Sept Theme: Bridges, Buses, Battlefields

This month do a page (or as many as you like) that suit the theme! OR

If you can't fit the theme - pick a city, state, country, OR

Did you go out of town to meet someone's new BABY or to celebrate someone's BIRTHDAY

I'll add a sample page later! No need to sign up, but you can if you wish. Just post a layout if you get one done.

TO answer some questions:
- the theme is loose - make it fit
- the word does not need to appear ON the layout itself - just put it in the description for us when you load it

NOTE: I will be away from Sept 15 until Oct 6 - so I won't be updating much during that time - there will be an October challenge but it won't get posted until the 7th

I totally ran out of time for "A" but I had tons of ideas. 😣

Already have some "B" ideas and hope to get at least 1 done! 😁

Don't worry, finish your los and post them on "Second chance" challenge. That is what I am going to do.

Yeah. What Doreena said!

Except, I'm heading back to New York the first week of October. Road Trip with hubby this time. We're picking up a horse in Chester - who will be my new lesson horse - and stopping to see about a gazillion relatives along the way.

I've got some really lovely pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge from our New York City vacation. I'll be scrapping them out of sync, but that's ok. I scrap almost everything out of sync. ;-)

A couple of the photos were taken from a bicycle, so that'd be a triple B, right?

B is for BOMBA - a traditional folkloric dance dating back MANY centuries. We were so excited to win FIRST place among the 18 nationalities represented in the traditional folkloric dance competition in Ohio.

I've got my Brooklyn Bridge layout JUST about done. But I keep getting interrupted in the middle of it.

Hoping tomorrow brings it to the finish line.

This was inspired by Care Bear challenge on ATG. My uncle drove from Kentucky to Ohio to make those awesome BEARS.
Now if this was next month, I could get the trifecta with driving from Covington to Cincinnati to make CARE Bears.

Well, I made it through Irma safe and sound. No damages at all for me nor my family.
Me and my son and ddil have power, My daughter and her fiance don't and that's the only worry I have after this so very scary experience.
I'm glad to hear about those members of this great community of scrapbookers who made it too.
Millions of thanks to all those who worried about me .
I was able to make some pages in the past days so I'll be posting them later.
Thanks again.
Ana

I did it! I completed a "B" lo! I was a crazy stalker lady and took pics of other people's beach homes while I was in Kure Beach, NC last month. One guy saw me taking pics so he mooned me, my 18 year old daughter and my husband's 60 year old great aunt through his big picture window. We just stood there and laughed! And no, I didn't take a pic of it. He didn't appear to be worth it, lol!

Well, as my scraproom has natural light,and not having internet connection, scrapbooking was a great way to spend the time and stand the extreme hot weather.
It was very "therapeutic".

Excellent job ladies! I just got home this morning but due to double time zone jet lag (2 hours one way and then 5 hours on top of that) I won't be posting the new challenge until sometime this weekend!

But I will give you this - it is C and the theme will be castles, cathedrals (churches) and caves!
