Scrapbooking time was virtually non-existent during the Summer holidays, and what little time available was allocated to our holiday Traveller’s Notebook.
I’ve added a page to The Boy Child’s album – one about being runner-up for a prize initiated by the family of his teacher who died. The Cup (it’s actually a rose bowl) is awarded to a Year 6 pupil who “has enriched the lives of others”. But this year, it was apparently a close run thing between three children. So close that the decision was made to honour the runners-up by presenting them with a cup that they could keep. It was an extremely emotional moment for all concerned. In other schooling news, Cachirulo has started at kindergarten. Since photographing the spread, I’ve added a few lines of washi tape, top and bottom. And in hindsight, it may been more pleasing on the eye if I’d used a dark cardstock.Waiting patiently on my desk for pretty paper and embellishments is a pile of photos from the summer, so I have plenty to keep going until December Daily.
