It's been a fab few days here ... The Postie delivered the latest offering from Mhairi McFarlane. 🙂 The Brainy One and I tackled the weeding and replanting in our front garden. We met up with my SiL to walk our dogs together and then had lunch in her garden. We revisited Hughenden. We enjoyed … Continue reading Me on Tuesday
The plan of one layout per month worked for February ... but there's two (related) spreads for March. 🙂 You've already seen Feb's spread in my Off the Grid post, but no matter. 🙂 For March, I began with when I received my jab. 🙂 As this will sit in the album opposite Pizza and … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | February and March
The thing about making several pages using the same design is that they invariably end up in different albums, so nobody is any the wiser . 🙂 (And I am closer to having a full set of gap-free albums.) Having said that, these two are side-by-side in The Boy's album. But this one below now … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | Filling in More Gaps

April: there was only one thing it could be - the birth of our newest great-nephew. Any excuse to use up themed stickers in the round: … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | 21 in 20 #2
For my final spot of scrapbooking this year I returned to a favourite design. Both photos were sent through over Christmas via WhatsApp groups and I was in the mood for a spot of here-and-now creating. I absolutely love this design - it's so eye-catching and also a great way to use up sticker sheets. … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #20
I chose the theme of school for both months. In September, The Boy Child returned to school after 192 days at home and settled into Year 9. In October, Cachirulo and Los Pequeños had their official school portraits taken. I might have cried when I received them.
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 … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #16
