One Little Word | Pause – May and June 2020

It's only now, at the back end of July, that I've completed May and June's Pause pages. For May, I chose to record my birthday selfie - complete with a make up-free face and a nasty stye.

Scrapping in 2020 | The Goals

I haven't solved the dilemma of scrapbook storage, so I'm continuing with my hunt for a scrapbooking solution that ticks all the boxes. And just like blogging, I've no plans to stop scrapbooking. As previously mentioned, I've returned to Project Life this year (in a smaller format than before) and I will also incorporate 8x8 … Continue reading Scrapping in 2020 | The Goals
