Circle Journal #3

At Scrapchat we're still passing around those Circle Journals we started at the beginning of the year. I completed my pages tonight. This one's instructions were to complete a double page layout of someone who inspired you. Well, I chose one of my Grandmothers. I was only allowed to talk about one person, or I would have included BOTH grandmothers. This picture went a little better with the paper colours I had on hand though, since a lot of my stash is now packed...Oh and we were to also do a tag about ourselves which tucks inside the paper bag pages. I don't know if you can tell from the bad photo but the background paper has old postcards and letters all over it. It reminded me of how much my grandmother liked to travel.

Most of the entries in this Circle Journal so far have been of female relatives (one lady admires the Surf Lifesavers though, and that's easy to understand - they do such a great job).

It's kind of scary and awe inspiring at the same time to think that I have a chance to be inspiring for my own little granddaughter. What a responsibility!

What a surprise to see my mom right there on your blog. Yes, she truly loved travel, and even made it from California to Australia long ago! She loved Australia and talked about it for years afterward.

I forgot to add, that picture is one that was taken by the school where she taught. Every year all the students and all the teachers had their pictures taken, and she always said, "Oh, don’t I look awful!” Seems the photographer never took out the wrinkles. Or the gray hair.

Glad you came by on the day I posted a pic of your Mom. Funny how she was my Grandmother too. And these days with Photoshop, we could have helped with the gray hair and wrinkles. I can so relate to that these days, being a grandmother myself fro over a week now!

We sure loved having her over here in 1969. And you too, decades later.
