Happy Holidays Scrapbook Page

Hi hi!

Don’t fall of your seat but this layout was actually a story from last December. Yes, 2020. I confess it was because I had printed the photos twice by accident when I was doing my Christmas Journal.

Luigi is 14 and as any mum-of-a-teen can attest, letting them grow up is hard, especially in times of great change or chaos like a pandemic… or an exponential rise in gaming and social media… Twitch. We’ve had a difficult few months, understandably. But he’s generally a good guy and he loved his Spicery advent calendar that he’s opening here. He also made this Christmas decoration, which I love, that ended up on our tree. The trees were supposed to be sold to raise money for his charity trip to Eswatini in July. Yes, Eswatini, where the South African variant of Covid was discovered. Obviously we can’t see that happening now and it’s such a shame that they can’t postpone.

I happened to have these 2 photos on my desk when thinking about the Go Go challenges during the December cyber crop and the sizes of the pics leant themselves well to the sketch prompt. Unusually for me, I didn’t use the same papers as my Christmas Journal (as I didn’t think I’d have enough to complete my album otherwise) (of course I was wrong) but I actually busted some old stash instead – I think it is Echo Park This & That Christmas from 2012. Ahem…

I even used my Cuttlebug to cut some stars – yay me! I’m doing really well at using up lots of older stash but of course I did use a couple of Bramble Fox Perspextives too. I love the Christmas present even though the hole on the tag part was so tiny that I said several bad words trying to thread something through! So unbecoming of a young lady…

Stay safe and keep smiling x
