This week I’m playing along with the challenge from Let’s Capture Our Memories.
Here’s the sketch we had to work from.
I really wanted to tell the story of this photo, so I swapped out one of the photos in the sketch for a journalling space. One of the traditions I try to keep is to get a yearly photo with Santa (there have been a few years where we have missed it because Gorgeous Girl has not been willing and I wasn’t going to traumatise her by forcing her to sit on a stranger’s lap when she was afraid of that person), but for the most part I like my yearly picture when we can get it. In 2011 we were travelling through Zambia. Most of the time we were in safari parks and there was no Santa to be found. Finally in a shopping mall in the country’s capital, Lusaka, we came across a Santa statue. Here’s my take on the sketch.
Not quite the real thing, but good enough to satisfy this crazy lady.
Gorgeous Girl also did a page today, she then insisted on taking her own picture and told me I had to upload it to the blog. (I’m beginning to suspect that she may need her own craft blog very soon…).
I love that she is starting to add her own journalling to her pages. I’ve had that red tape in my stash for a while and never really liked it. Seeing it off the roll and on her page I think I’m changing my mind about it. Just need to find some suitably formal photos to use it with…
