Scrapbooking | June 2020 By the Numbers

This year, as I process each month's photos, I'm creating a digital layout featuring six photos and journaling "by the numbers." I'm using a digital template and various papers from my stash. My plan is to include a photo of me and Robbie and a photo of my mantel display as the top line of photos each month.

Here's how the numbers add up for June.

* 22 days Robbie worked from home.
* 1 visit to Mama & Daddy.
* 4 face masks custom made by Mama.
* 3 haircuts for Robbie by Melissa since pandemic began.
* 14 hours of old home movies transferred from VHS to DVD.
* $ to pay off mortgage after 13 yrs & 2 mths in our home!
* 5 weeks spent (finally) unpacking, organizing & setting up Toy Room.
* 59 books read by Melissa & 25 books read by Robbie the first half of 2020.
*10% pay cut due to economic downturn attributed to Covid-19.
* 2 nephews here to visit.
* 6,975 new coronavirus cases reported in ONE DAY in Texas!
* 3 movies watched: Superman The Movie, Superman II, Arsenic & Old Lace.
* 19 layouts completed, 1 art journal page created, 1 card made, 2 Bible pages illustrated, 15 blog posts published.

We only watched three movies last month. Superman: The Movie and Superman II are the original movies from 1978 & 1981 that feature Christopher Reeve as Superman. I don't remember actually ever watching these shows & thoroughly enjoyed them both. Arsenic & Old Lace debuted in the 1940s and is just plain FUN to watch. A dramatic critic, played by Cary Grant, discovers that his two spinster aunts are poisoning lonely old men their gentlemen house guests and burying them in the basement. It sounds bizarre and gruesome, but in truth this movie is just comedy gold.

How did the numbers add up for you in June?
