I'm back using one of my favourite grid designs to give a home to our great-nephews' school photos. In a spot of continuity, I also used it for Cachirulo's Reception class photos in January. I tweaked a design seen on Scrapbooking Quebec for the second layout featuring our wee boys - I absolutely love, love, … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #17
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
Week 41: I collected my new retainer from the orthodontist. Autumn has arrived in our favourite local park. We met up with my SiL to walk our dogs together. We celebrated the twins' birthday over Zoom. Week 42: I popped into the salon to get my eyebrows done. 🙂 Not shown are the haircuts three … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 41 and 42
To be honest, I'd rather forgotten about the Covid-19 journal ... however, now that we have a semblance of normality in our lives with The Boy Child back at school, I've picked it up again. Into the album has gone a haircut - just the story and a single embellishment: Included next was a visit … Continue reading Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 5
Week 33: I added an insert for this week to allow for extra photos. I met my friends for a drink at the pub. I took The Boy Child to buy school shoes. We travelled to South Lakeland for a long weekend - Ulverston and Gummer's Howe. Week 34: We ended our weekend away with … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 33 and 34
Week 31: The Boy Child's friend (and his Mum) came round for an hour or so in the garden. I met my friend's gorgeous new puppy. 🙂 I walked Tilly in the grounds of Pitzhanger Manor. We took a picnic lunch to Osterley Park. We spent a very happy Sunday in the countryside. Week 32: … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 31 and 32
I don't have a favourite great nephew. Of course I don't. But if I did, it would be this one.
Week 29: We spent a few more hours walking through the woods at Hughenden. We had an unexpected photo opportunity with Cachirulo and Los Pequeños. We were invited for socially-distanced drinks in a friend's garden and The Boy Child was invited to take a dip ... I made a flip card to record the story. … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 29 and 30
Thanks to the easing in the UK lockdown, we've been able to visit The Brainy Boy, The Colombian and our three great nephews. Luckily for them and us, they moved house just 2 weeks before lockdown began and now have a much bigger garden. One that can easily cope with a socially-distanced family get-together. It … Continue reading Life in Lockdown | Family Favourites
