The Whatever's #4...Creative Storytelling

Creative Storytelling with The Whatever's is the brain child of these 3 incredible artists...Catherine Matthews-Scanlon, Nathalie Kalbach & Vicki Chrisman. If you haven't been following along you can go to their blogs to get all the details or to the Facebook page {links included}.

I'm catching up so here is my THE WHATEVER'S Challenge #4. 

Here is my story:

I keep finding little clues hoping to solve the mystery of who are the two children in the picture I found in the attic. Now here is another picture I found but no one will tell me anything about these strange people.

 Instead of any answers my Grandma just shakes her head, saying something in her native language of German, “shosshes” me away and says “Someday when you are older I will tell you who all these people are…now go to the beach and get some sun and fresh air.”

There is no sense in saying anymore. My Grandma is very stubborn and if you go to far she gives you a look that makes you stop dead in your tracks. No sense going any further but I wish I was Nancy Drew because I would solve this mystery and write a book called The Mystery of the Photographs. But I’m not so I’m going to try and find clues like I was a newspaper reporter!

Who are these people?

What is there relationship to my family?

Where are they from?

Why does my Grandmother have this picture?

How did the button, scissors and ribbon get in my box of photos?

There is still time to join is sooooo much fun to see all the different twists and turns that everyone is coming up with! 

I'm going to work on Challenge #5 and be caught up...have a great weekend!
