Scrapbooking in 2020 #16

The lovely Mary-Lou, of Patio Postcards blog and organiser of the ever-popular Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt, recommended Scrapbooking Quebec on YouTube as a source of scrappy inspiration and she wasn’t wrong. 🙂

Taking inspiration from her easy-to-follow videos, I produced two layouts starring our great nephews.

The first spread marks the twins joining their big brother at school (although I have absolutely no idea how that is even possible; weren’t they just born?)

The second spread is about the birthday party that wasn’t … participating via Zoom does not a birthday party make. 🙂

  1. It’s always good to investigate new techniques and ideas and I bet following something on youtube is a good way to do it – thank goodness for blog friends with recommendations!
    We won’t be able to see Rosie for her 2nd birthday (unless we have formed a childcare bubble with them by then) and that’s a very strange thing to contemplate. It will be the first family birthday that we won’t all be able to get together 😦 At least I can meet her and one other person for a ‘one to one’ walk round the lake. Then when we get back, Paul can do the same! It only seems like yesterday you were sharing photos of the twins’ arrival – how can they possibly be going to nursery?

    1. I think that we all have to find what works, while staying within the rules. Being able to meet one other person outside of your household is a definite bonus.


  2. So glad you enjoyed Dorothy’s style. I thought you two would get on well. I echo Deb’s comment about the g-nephews – didn’t they just arrive into this crazy world? Great layouts & like Dorothy, you do embellishments with panache.

  3. What beautiful trios in both layouts! You’ve really done then proud, letting the photos star and yet adding touches what really enhance them. I love your little clusters. Time does indeed whip by – it seems no time since our lovely grand-daughter was, just a year ago, lying on her back in a Moses basket and now she is runnig around, climbing up and and down slides and furniture and chattering away. And you are right – Zoom is not the same as a proper party. Hopefully you’ll all be able to get together before too long!
