The last of the more recent pages I've created over these past couple of months that I haven't shared here on the blog. A couple are for my All About Me album and the other one for Stories 2018 - those stories that aren't either my story per se, or solely my story, but are more family-oriented stories I'm telling.
This first one (above) is about me, of course, and a book I read that is going into a 'stack' of keepers.
I realized it has been awhile since I read aloud and I was a bit out of my groove, but I still gave it a go because I wanted to read aloud the unabridged yet illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone that we got Ian, who loves everything Harry Potter, for his birthday in June. We bought him the illustrated books of the first two in the series (and I think a couple more in the series, the illustrated books) will make a nice Christmas present, too)
I love lists as is quite obvious if one has been around my blog for awhile. For my All About Me album I scraplifted the idea for an Elevensies page from another digital scrapbooker who I've come to admire for her designs. She's Australian and elevensies is a British-term, a short break taken at 11 am with tea and biscuits, but translated the term to a list of 'eleven' things - instead of the typical top 10. Because it was July and half of the year has passed - reading my heart out - I decided to record my favorite books - so far - this year.
Most months, at the end of the month, I include a page, or two, of my favorites of the month, highlighting those things over the month that I celebrated - in my heart.
