Second on the second August 2017

Hi all!
Today Elizabeth and Bluebeard are inviting us to dig deep into our blog archives and publish something for the second time.
I have chosen a blogpost from 2014 that shows a scrapbook page I made then. It has a photo from 1992 when hubby and me walked a 'Strollerthon', a maratón at walking pace. As neither of us are runners this was more our style. Of course it was for charity and it was loads of fun! An added bonus was that it took us along the most famous landmarks of London (I had only been to London a couple of times before that).
Here is the blog post:

Totally Happy 

CSI - Color, Stories and Inspiration had a lovely colour palette this week (Case file 133), so I felt I had to do something with that pink and orange.

Here is my interpretation of case file 133. Once again I used stuff I had lying about like the ribbed wrapper of a roll of biscuits and the pink tissue. Also I stamped onto the back of a clothes tag.
I thought the color palette was gorgeous and I used all the colors.

As evidence I’ve chosen an animal (butterfly), a flower (pink petals make up a rose) and a tree (which is in the photo). There are polka dots and I added clothes pegs as I thought that was what was needed, but I’ve just noticed it’s clothes pins. Oh well.....

The idea came from a prompt from ‘Sunday Scribblings’: “What would you do if you could not fail”. The answer to that was: ”Run a marathon!” Now I don’t run and never have, but I have done a marathon at walking pace.... a strollerthon. 

My testimony is the journaling on a string, even if my string became a twig but I did use the words ‘delight’ and ‘simple’.

The journaling reads:
“To do a marathon for charity at walking pace      is simply a delight: Strollerthon”

The company my husband worked for (Cadbury’s, that made chocolate bars) organized a marathon for charity. For those people not wanting to run, they did a ‘Strollerthon’ through London. It was much publicized and was attended by thousands of people. Just ‘our’ factory sent four coach loads! It was so exiting travelling to London and walking along all those famous places! My husband played his guitar on the way too. I can’t  remember how much we raised for Save-The-Children as it was in 1992, but I do have very ‘Totally Happy’ memories of that time. 

Thanks for stopping to read this and thank you for your comments, which I always find very exciting.

God bless and.... keep scrapping



  1. Good morning, oh I loved your sescond on the 2nd post-thanks for sharing hugs Kathy

  2. Look at you too. I forget how much styles have changed in the last almost 20 years. :) Its a beautiful page Lisca, and walking for a charity is something I like to do too. PLUs you got to see some cool London sights which makes it even better. :) Hugs-Erik

  3. Great post, love the idea of a strollerthon, that would be more my cup of coffee, too! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  4. In MY world those ARE clothes pins. I guess that's one of those phrases that somehow gets misinterpreted in the "translation."

    I've always loved your CSI stories in scrapbook form, but obviously, I've never seen this one. It is wonderful and a Strollerthon sounds much more enjoyable than the alternative. Not as hard on the feet or knees, either.

    Golly, your husband must have been well loved. Anyone who worked at Cadbury's would have my approval (grin).

    Thanks for sharing this incredible CSI with us for your second look on the 2nd.
