It’s back to School

Welcome to my Blog…today I’m taking part in a Blog Hop with Scrapbooking Global. This is the first time I have hopped with them so this will be fun. The theme this month is ‘Back to School”

This theme is so appropriate right now as recently I have been contacted by my Class mates from 1979 in regards to us all getting together later this year. It’s so exciting as a lot of these people I haven’t seen in 40 years…WOW! ….. 40 years since finishing Year 10, that’s a long time. Going through old school photo’s & reliving memories I came across this photo taken the year before in 1978 at a Year 9 School Excursion to the Illawarra region. Posting this on our FB Group everyone one commented on this was one of the best times they remember from school. This photo was taken of our group…there were so many of us. There were approx 130 in our year and about 90 went on the trip.

For this layout I have kept it very simple with the photo being the ‘Hero’.

Thank you for visiting my Blog, I hope you have enjoyed it. Next is Cynthia’s Blog Page…have fun and enjoy….

 

 

Catching Up and Family Traditions

This week has been about playing catch up with my scrapbooks using retired products from Stampin’ Up!.

The pages for 2008 were finished a while back but need to go back and finish the journalling. Do you know how hard it is to remember 10 years ago to what we were doing..

It really does pay off to scrap as you go through out the year…have to remember that if I go back in time this is what I would change..

Family Traditions..

When my boys were younger every Christmas I would drag them (Yes…drag..usually complaining all the way) to the local shopping center to have the “Photo with Santa”..

This photo was taken  in 2009 and I’m not sure if there are many more after this. Out of my 4 boys only 2 would make me happy and  have this done…

 and how special are these moments.

Don’t leave your memories too long to get them into albums and jot down what its all about…Because before for you know it the years have gone and the memories start to fade.

All products used are retired from Stampin’ Up!

If you need any help in getting started I am happy to help..
