Whatevers TWO for May 2014

It's that time! MAY Whatevers Day!    If your not familiar with "Whatevers" You can read more about it here.  But basically my friends...Nat, Cat, Cuchy,  Martha  and I have committed to a full year of bringing new life to  forgotten photos. Each month we create a page and give it a story using that months photo. We share the photo with you in hopes that you will play along and join in the fun.
 There is also more info at the bottom of this post along with the links to the other girls blog, so that you can check out what they have created.

Here is the page I created with this month photo.

I had fun creating the background with lots of mists and glaze.

My story:

Lilly longed for this day. The day Fredrick returned. They had pledged their love to each other.   His heart belonged to her.   Now they could begin their life together. She was counting the days. She didn't  care about a big wedding and all that came with that, she just want them to be married.  With both parents blessing, they planned to marry in a small ceremony  with just their closest family and friends there with them. She would wear her mothers dress, and her sister Rose and his brother Edward would stand up with them. She had envisioned this day for so long, now it was only a week way  One week, and she would be Mrs. Fredrick Samson.

  • Every month – if possible always on the 15th –  each of us will do a post with an   individual story that goes along for us with the same photo.
  • If you want you can play along and we will have the photo for you to download and show us your version of The Whatevers. The photo will be posted at the end of our blog posts- not on Facebook!
  • There is no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the length or the form of the story- it can be a short sentence, an essay, a poem or a soap opera – WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the art form you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an art journal page – WHATEVER
  • Here is a rule though: if you take the photo you have to link back to us and show us your story.
  • These pictures are from our personal stash and are for personal use for you only! If you want to use them for a publication whether a book or magazine in print or digital form please ask for permission!
