I needed to take a break from digital scrapbooking all of this last fall and most of this past winter, and now have been very, very slowly going back to cover some of that time period. As you can see (below), we were gone from home the whole month of September 2022! Here are two of the ten pages I was able to digital scrapbook a few months ago, from our Trip to Oregon in September 2022.
It was the first time for us as four Siebert siblings to all be together since our father's passing in January of 2018. What a joy it was to be all together again ... one brother & his wife coming from New York, and Gary & me from Nebraska, to join another brother & his wife in Gresham, OR, and another brother in Portland.
The highlight of our time together, was just to be together again!! The scrapbook page above captures some of the beauty and joy of our time together, as we spent a day along the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
The majority of our time was spent working together to prepare for our youngest brother to make a big move. And now he is back here in Nebraska, at an Assisted Living place just two blocks from our home for six months, and more recently, at a residential-style home that offers quality, individualized care just a 30-minute drive from us! It is so good to have him close by, especially as his Parkinsons disease has worsened in recent years.
Note for those who ask how I create these pages: About eleven years ago I switched from paper scrapbooking to digital scrapbooking, and took some online lessons from Digital Scrapper to learn how to digital scrapbook using Photoshop Elements. You can also click here for some great tutorials on the Digital Project Life website - this is probably a quicker way to learn than the site that I used eleven years ago. I recommend using these tutorials. Most of the page templates and digital products that I use are purchased from Digital Project Life. Also, besides being able to share my completed pages online, I also print them out at home in 8x8 inch size to fit in the albums that I purchase from Michael's.
