WOYWW #199 - Family

Gosh despite the snow still lying on the ground and the freezing temperatures, it is quite bright this morning. Here's my desk, I've been doing a bit of scrapping. The 8x8 layouts are for my Family Album where I do a page or two each year of the photos of our family since our son was born 14 years ago. It is amazing looking through it and seeing how he has grown and my hair going grey! Right now our son is 10cm taller than me and 10cm shorter than his Dad.

Anyway this peek of my desk is for the delights of WOYWW, so go and have a peek at a myriad of other desks over at Julia's Place.

What a great idea. And a couple of pages a year doesn't feel too onerous either.

Hi BJ, as ever, your layouts are beautiful and how lovely will that be in later years for your Son to look back on too. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #33

Anne said...

BJ what a lovely LO you really are brilliant at doing them. Lovely photos of you and your family- your son is a very handsome young man!!!! It's snowing here again this morning. I have lots to do but don't have any motivation. Happy WOYWW. Anne x

I love seeing people document to progression of age. I get passport photos done every 5 years and I'll write the date, my age and anything large i've done in my life in the previous 5 years. I have to say I looked much better with a bit of fat on my face! The best progression I ever saw was a piece in a magazine which documented a person who's mother had taken a picture of him every year on his birthday. In each shot, she would feature him holding a bit of cardboard with his age on, alongside the best toy he got for his birthday. He's 35 now:) Have a great week and thank you for sharing! Lucy #37 x

The tags at the back of your desk are so wonderful too!

Hi BJ. Super layouts and I'm really liking those tags on your desk too - I'm guessing the bunny is a Tim Tag - I'm so behind now I think I'll have to give up! Have a great week MMx #141

What great layouts, BJ. I love the idea of keeping a Yearly record. You forget how they change in small ways as well as the big ones.
Happy Easter
