Sketch 'n'scrap

                                                                                                                                                                         This is the sketch at sketch'n'scrap that is due by 31st May.

And at Challenge Yourself

I'm combining these 2 challenges.
The 2 photos of me are almost identical, taken at a park in the middle of Christchurch, New Zealand.

The pole is a Victorian era one with intricate panels and stood at the junction of 4 paths.
This was symbolic to me, as I'm turning 65 this year and the different parts of my life are all coming together, looking forward.

I love TRAVEL, it is my main passion and I hope to continue doing it for a while yet. (We were travelling when this was taken)
I'm financially secure now which allows me to travel.
My daughter is early 30's and has her life sorted out.
4 years ago I bought a house which will see me out.
So far, my health has been reasonable, hopefully it will remain so for a while.
Basically, I'm ready to face my future with no demands or encumbrances.

Hi Julene! I absolutely LOVE your wonderful page. The photos with YOU in the frame are awesome, and your design is fantastic. I especially LOVE your goal, too. Thank you so much for joining us at Challenge YOUrself this month. We are very happy that you did!

Your page is great Love that you told a little bit about why you put these photos in your book rather than just the photo. I am trying to tell the story more in my own scrapbooks. I hope your health stays good and that you get to continue to travel, it sounds like it will. Enjoy every moment. Than you for playing along with us at Sketch N Scrap.
