Sketch N Scrap - December 2020 Sketch # 215 by Lisa Hidy / Sister For Trade

  Good Morning - 

It's that time ladies . . . .time for my December monthly sketch reveal @ Sketch N Scrap. 

Today I'm sharing with you my take on Sketch #215 by the very talented Lisa Hidy at Sketch N Scrap

I created this layout of my beautiful grandbabies - Everly Claire and Harrison Grant. It initially started out as a "First Easter" page (as it technically was), but since it also included a picture with Everly in it, I decided to change it up a bit . . .the title is perfect, as he absolutely adores his sister, but there are days when she literally cannot tolerate him, and is a bit "not nice" to him. They definitely add new meaning to the phrase - sibling rivalry. 

I of course had to change the sketch up a bit to fit my 8-1/2 x 11 needs and used an older line of Bella Blvd Papers - Sweet Sweet Spring.

Real Men Wear Masks

 Hello everyone! 

Thought I'd play along this weekend with the Scrap Our Stash’s December Mask Up challenge. Covid-19 has definitely touched each of our lives in one way or another. . . as for me, I'm grateful that my husband and I have been able to continue to go to work, we still have a steady income, and my son was able to start his sophomore year of college in person (he commutes locally). 

My journaling is a bit wordy, but I wanted to get the details on paper so one day when he looks back on this. . . .well, you know.

My journaling - 

Friday August 21st, 2020

First Day of your Sophomore Year at Lycoming College. Pictures were taken afterwards.I managed to get a few pictures of you while I was standing on the outskirts of the college campus. Only students were  allowed on campus no parents and no visitors due to COVID-19. You were worried just a tad bit while I was taking pictures as suspension was threatened if you were caught breaking the rules.

Sunday Dec 6th, 2020 (journaling) 

You managed to attend the whole semester in person. Numerous safety measures were put into play to create a safer environment - daily check ins via text and emails, mask wearing, daily temperature checks,  smaller classes & classrooms being added (that weren’t classrooms  before), cleaning desks (that were set 6’ apart) before and after class, and more time to get from one class to another to allow for social distancing. From Aug 1st Nov 30th there were a total of 15 positive cases of COVID-19 among  students, faculty, and staff.

And here’s my take on the challenge:
