Hi and welcome to a new challenge! (and sorry I'm a day late!!) :-l

Can you believe it's already November?

If you know me a little bit, you know that I don't use a lot of personal photos in layouts that I show here (or anywhere else on the "web" ).
But sometimes you have to go back to basics and remember why you started digital scrapbooking in the first place.
Sure, because it is a lot of fun, but also: to tell stories! Do you remember when....oh, and then this happened,...etcetera..

So, this month I would like you to show me a personal layout of an important (or not so important) moment in your life that you absolutely don't want to forget, or that you want to preserve for future generations.

My story:
Last week we had a Fall Break, so we decided to go to the park and enjoy all the Fall colors. Now that my teens are getting bigger and bigger they don't want to go with us all the time (...or should I say "Please can I stay home....." :-N), so it's getting more and more difficult to preserve those moments. I made this photo with another photo in mind, that I took 5 years ago to show how much they have grown.



This is the page from my 2013 album:



As always: the most important thing is to have FUN!!

Thank you so much for watching and I can't wait to see your pages!!

Sonja :-i

You may need a magnifying glass to read the text, but suffice is to say that in 2004 I ran my first ever 5K running race and lived to tell the tale! Thanks for a fun challenge this month, Sonja!

I love "love". Aren't we lucky and grateful? Your background is perfect with the colors and textures, Yvonne. And the circle photo of you both drew me in. XOXO

Thank you for your nice comment. It is not a circle photo, it is us photographed in a mirror hanging on this barn.

I am enjoying this challenge so much, I thought I would do another one. I hope that is OK. xxx

I am not the most photogenic person in the world, but this was not helped by that hat. It looks like a pile of pancakes slapped on my head. I had promised my husband and parents I would get a photo taken for my PhD ceremony, so I did. I then promptly got changed and went to the pub rather than the ceremony.
