My sister, Mom, and I drove to the Twin Cities area last Thursday for a long weekend to visit my sister. My nephew had his last home football game. I hadn’t seen him play for a few years, so I really wanted to see him play. (He did awesome…he had a terrific interception as a DB.)
We shopped for wall hangings for my Mom as well as scrapbook supplies. Archivers in Coon Rapids is closing at the end of October. They had 30% off everything in the store. I definitely found some goodies to replace the items I cleaned out of my room last month.
We also took some scrapping supplies and found a few hours to scrap in the evening. I was able to complete a few pages. I scrapped current photos. The above layout is of my son, JV, at sunrise on the youth deer hunting opening. Love the sun over his shoulder.
Z has been into 3D puzzles right now, so wanted to capture that in a layout. He doesn’t do regular jigsaw puzzles, but loves the 3D ones. Me? I can’t do 3D puzzles, but love to fix a regular puzzles.
I decided to also capture the fact that I am an auction addict in a layout.
In August Big M and I took a 4 wheeler ride around our neighborhood. The sunflowers were beautiful. We stopped in an alfalfa field, and I found several small insects in the flowers.
I didn’t want they photos to be large, but thought little 2×2 photo border of those photos would make a great base for the sunflower photos. It was an amazing evening in North Dakota.
I did a quick 8×8 of a photo of Z with his new prescription sunglasses just for fun.
Finally I had to capture a layout of our family when we had to go get tested for TB. We were exposed to a relative who had TB and didn’t know it for months. We needed to be tested. No one had it, but it was an interesting experience. We had to call the nurse when we were in the parking lot. She came out with a mask on and gave us masks. We needed to keep them one while in the office. I actually appreciated that she was being careful not to expose her staff or other patients to TB.
It is unusual for me to scrapbook twice in two weeks. Loved it. Still motivated to find time to scrap a layout or two at home.
