Scrapbooking | October, November & December 2020 Scrapped

I'm excited to report that I've completed all the layouts for our 2020 chronological scrapbook! Here's a look at some of my pages from the last three months of the year.

My great-aunt passed away in October, so I created a quick In Memory page with a variety of photos from different times.

The quick overnight trip to Mississippi for my aunt's funeral was our only experience traveling in this pandemic. We made as few stops as possible and only spent time with others for the viewing, a quick meal, and the funeral. Honestly, it was extremely uncomfortable because Robbie and I and my Daddy (who traveled with us) were the only ones wearing face masks. To fill in the time the morning before the funeral, we drove around and saw some of the "old home places" and listened to Daddy tell stories from his childhood and the early days of my parents' marriage. When we drove by the abandoned skating rink where my parents met, Robbie snapped some photos of me and Daddy.

It was just the two of us here for Thanksgiving in November; however, we had a wonderful Zoom get-together with all (except two) of my family members. I printed the screenshot I snapped and used some 6x6 fall themed papers on this next layout.

I created a digital layout with our other photos from Thanksgiving Day.

I created quite a few layouts to document our December memories (some of which I'll share in a future post). The first one showcases a photo of my niece and the diaper cake I created as she is expecting a baby girl any day now. I had a Keep It Simple layout kit on hand with colors that worked perfect for the photo she texted me the day she opened gifts since the pandemic prevented an in-person baby shower.

And the final page in our album is a quick layout showcasing the selfie we snapped as we spent a quiet day at home on our 19th anniversary. 

Since I rarely scrap in chronological order, it's very unusual for me to complete an album this soon after the year. In fact, I still have six previous year's albums to complete. There were less photos and no vacation trips in 2020, so I'm excited to have all these memories scrapped. I'm waiting for the final digital layouts to arrive from Persnickety Prints and this album will go on our Memories Shelf with the other completed scrapbooks!

How's your 2020 scrapbook coming along? 


  1. Wow, you've been really productive and creative! That's a whole beautiful set of memories you have there. :)

  2. You have been busy with all these wonderful layouts. I am just waiting for some photos to complete both my 2020 day to day album & 2020 December Daily. Even though I started the Pandemic album in 2020, I do not consider it a record to be completed until 2022. Happy weekend.

  3. It's such a lovely feeling when something is completed, isn't it! And you've made such a great variety of pages ... I'm sure your Great-Aunt Betty would feel very honoured to have a place in your scrapbooks. So many cancelled events - but that diaper cake is amazing! And best of all, lots of happy photos of the two of you :).

  4. You have quite a collection of really nice layouts to commemorate this year. I don't do much chronological scrapbooking anymore, but compelled to do a pandemic album this year. Now it turns out that I have too many layouts for it. I just felt it was important to document such an unusual year.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
