Scrap Your Story Childhood Challenge

Okay, this is seriously weird.....my first blog post for nearly two years and my first scrap page in a VERY LONG TIME. The last couple years have been tough for me (and my family) for various reasons and my scrapbooking just went out the window....BUT...finally I was ready and Mum and I scrapped yesterday and today....it wan't easy to begin with and I nearly gave up.....but I got two pages done - this is my second.

The challenge over at Scrap Your Story Challenges this week is nice and open - "Childhood".

I chose to do these photos of my daughter from nearly three years agao, it was so nice to have the memory down and I feel quite proud of my page, considering how long it's been!!

The best thing of all, I got to share scrapbooking with my Mum again. We yell at each other, laugh at each other, pinch each other's things, help each other and most importantly spend time doing something we both love again.....

So here is my entry:


Journalling reads:

These photos were actually taken the day after the A Men Hockey Team won the Grand Final.
It was the presentation and break up and you were still infatuated with the streamers!! God forbid no-one could tell you how to wear a head band properly!








And thanks to Mum (Leanne Kroschel) for getting me completely addicted to the goodies from The Trinket Track - I made her leave some because I know I will be looking for them to add to my next layout!! They are just perfect for those finishing touches, where you think, "Hmmm, it needs something there!!"

Thanks again Mum and The Trinket Track!!
