Scrap Pages 10,11 & 12/2021

 Hello everyone,

Welcome again to my blog and thanks for dropping in. It's another 'for the record' post, catching up with more pages that count towards my personal challenge to create 200 this year. 

You Are Amazing ...

Kitchen Update
Home Schooling
More dipping into old papers, embellishments and scraps from recent MTS kits went into the making of these pages. I'd like to say that I'm making quite a dint in the stash mountain but I'd plainly be kidding myself. It's clear I have a way to go yet. 

The photo in that first page is of my lovely mum and me after my graduation ceremony. I wasn't the first of mum's children to graduate, my youngest sister beat me to it, but mine was the first ceremony my mother attended. She was so proud and loved every moment and I was so happy for my amazing mum to be there to enjoy the experience. 

The other two pages are records of happenings from during the pandemic months. As we all know, home schooling became a necessity during the lockdowns and the EM's great-nephew and niece joined in enthusiastically. At least they did to begin with. The novelty wore off eventually and their poor mother discovered she wasn't, despite being a devoted mother, cut out for teaching. Still, they kept it up and somehow survived. The kitchen update just had to be recorded because it was planned before the pandemic hit us but couldn't be done until after the first lockdown finished and I can't begin to tell you how delighted I was with the results. 

Hopefully, I'll be back pretty soon with a few more pages, just for the record.

In the meantime, I hope you are all well and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Lovely photos and well done for using up (a little) stash. My daughter had her kitchen done just before this latest lockdown and was never so glad to see something finished! Happy scrapbooking!
