A few more pages

I'm still trying to update my blog with the pages I did in May. Although I was struggling with myself and feeling rather low I still managed to do several layouts.

This one of my son (in his teens) Serving for the championship. Every year at Croft Camps they had sporting activities and Neil was always at the forefront. He was very competitive and had to win.
Serving for the Championship

Another one of Neil, this time many years later, usual pose, phone in hand.

A Smile
my own faux enamel dots here and also the journalling block I created and cut on Robo (really enjoying bringing in hybrid elements to my pages)

Now this one really is a blast from the past and took some detecting to work out what the photos were all about
Past Present
I came to the conclusion that it must have been Christmas 1965 (our first Christmas after we were married) and that John had bought me a watch. As there is no one left to contradict that surmising I went with that.

This last one for today is one from our Florida holiday last year.
Ride a Croc
I just had to be a child again and ride the Croc (alligator really)

my one little word for today is BLUE
or should that be UNFORGETTABLE
