You’ve Got This with the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop inspiration this month. This month we’re celebrating others who have quite simply got it and probably don’t realise it.
Welcome to this month’s blog hop and to my inspiration on this theme. With yesterday being Back to School day for our son, it had me thinking.
Children this year have had a rough ride with the whole Covid Lockdown. Unable to play with their friends unless virtually, it’s been a hard year. I couldn’t be any more proud of our son right now and how he has risen to the 2020 challenge. Lonely at times without a sibling to play with, he has remained upbeat and cheerful and lifted the spirits of others along the way.
I designed this card using the Pattern Play stamp set, one that I thought would be youthful. Using a rainbow of colours that represented the theme for 2020, I added this sentiment from High Tide. He is indeed our little ray of light.
Not one for embarking on a scrapbook page, I decided to give it a go. I mean … You’ve Got It Girl !! Keeping a memory of his first day in Year 5 and highlighting our thoughts of him. Several Die sets were used to help carry the theme of the rainbow and light across from the card.
Happy Dies created clouds, Stitched Ovals the rainbow, Playful Alphabet the Y5 marker and Stitched Stars for the Star that he is. My desk was a wash of playful fun. I got totally lost in this layout.
This Summer he most certainly did have the ability to make an ordinary moment shine. No ordinary lunch, no ordinary mowing of the lawn, he turned everyday activities into playful pleasure.
It’s been the most random of years and one I don’t think any of us will ever forget. It’s not over yet but his new school year has just started. Opportunities and excitement lay before him and I can’t wait to see how this little guy grows into the wonderful young man that he is becoming.
If you’ve never ventured into the wonderful world of Scrapbooking then perhaps now is the time. I have been putting it off for a long time but as this theme says … You’ve Got it, so go grab it … just like our son … make every moment count.
Enjoy the rest of the hop and stay safe out there.
