12/12/16 - MIM #78

Make it Monday Sketch #78 is live over at the "The Memory Nest" Blog.

Her is the wonderful sketch you will be working with if you play along:

 MIM #78

And here is the layout I created... out of all Hoarded items BTW.
The newest scrapbook item on here (minus the file labels; date unknown) is from September 2013.

"Family Tradition"
Journaling: "Starbucks while picking out our tree. First time Joseph wasn't
with us; he was missed. 11/20/16"

It's a Family Tradition to go to the Christmas Tree Farm in November to pick out our tree.
We always include a treat either before or after the event.
This year we went to Starbucks on the way to the Christmas Tree Farm.
As you can see from our cold drinks, it was a hot day!

This is the first year our son wasn't w/ us.
At 21 years old, he has his own life now and isn't always around to do things w/ the family.
He was missed but we understood.
And it's something we will just have to get used to.

Looking forward to seeing what you create.
You have until December 31st!

  1. Loveeeeeeeee this! LOVING the colors and the photos!!! And I feel your pain, every time we go on a road trip, I miss Adam even more! :)

  2. What a great time to document! This looks like a fun day! It's always tough when your entire family isn't around.

  3. Love the layout. Yay for using hoarded items. This year was the first time my husband and I got our tree without either kid :( I hate that they have to grow up!

  4. Great job with the sketch and all those challenges!

My printer was having issues and I fixed it but during the interim I was not scrapping and lost my mojo ::le sigh:: But I've still been ...
