Layout for February Challengeyourself blog with the theme of love…Hubby and I at our youngest sons wedding in 2012

2020..Year in review

My page for Challenge Yourself for December..As the challenge was anything goes I decided to document the Covid year for I have scrapped pages for our grandkids to remember 2020 I thought why not one for me..We had 2 lockdowns in Melbourne.I had a corneal transplant in April (after it was cancelled in March…I have covered that plus my hubby helping me put a colour in my long hair (for me) and when I finally got to birthday cake that my hubby turned up with on his walk…photos with grandkids when we finally caught  up with them..and a beach photo when we could go further than 25Kms to where our triplet grandchildren live..and who had morphed from babies to toddlers in the 4 months we didnt see them..and last but not least my scraproom where I spent most of my time in lockdown doing what I love…This page is not a work of art but a work of the heart. I must add that we had a lovely holiday in New Zealand Feb March just before the pandemic.

This page is for ChallengeYOUrself October mood baord of Autumn colours…I didnt have much in my stash for autumn colours so I came up with this…my 7th birthday..1956..Mum always got out a lovely cloth for the table for the cake and Dad came out with his brownie box camera…seeing these are coloured they would have been slides…which has got me thinking ..did he use his brownie for these..I will google it to find out


This is  for Challenge yourself September challenge about something you are thankful for..I couldn’t go past being thankful for my beautiful family..I felt quite emotional uploading this layout as we have hardly seen our family this year due to being lockdown for most of the year in Melbourne ..The family surprised me with  a lovely lunch at a restaurant and a bunch of 70 beautiful pink roses..also a brush with breast cancer 19 years ago and you appreciate the important things in your life. This is the whole family..3 children happily married..and 7 grandchildren including triplets that are now 15 months old/.



This layout is for the Challenge Yourself challenge for August. using a holiday theme.   I don’t scrap our holiday photos that often but when I saw this paper I had to scrap this photo from our New Zealand holiday in March that we managed to get in before the Corona virus stopped all the travel…Me and hubby on the right and my sister and her hubby on the left.
