Twenty Years Ago Today

Well I'm posting this early as we are travelling in a few days, so it is actually: - a week from today - 
Twenty Years Ago -we were married and began this wonderful journey of blending two lives into one. We are lucky. We are blessed. We grow older and better as a couple as we faced life's trials and triumphs, all by God's Grace!

You might have seen the first twenty pages of my Anniversary Album here, I have a few more themed pages planned, and in this one I had in mind to capture about us. Didn't want it to be too serious or sappy, so thought up some prompts and had a lot of fun answering the questions!

Do you have other ideas for such prompts? I'm looking for more! Also I'd love to hear some of your answers, how will yours be like? Care to share some in the comments?
If you like to use the ideas in a layout of your own, scroll down for the template link.


Beijing Pages
Last few Beijing pages (finally) 

Here's one where (as for every trip), I took the random photos that did not make it to any layout, but added color to our trip, and gather them in one layout. 
This next one is where we spent time in the Song Qing Ling home and Museum. She was the wife of Sun Yat Sen and a very remarkable lady. I was so impressed and touched by all she did even after his early death, for the war efforts, for the country, always with grace and brilliance. It was a most rewarding visit.
This next one was much more up the boys' alley - the Military Museum - all the tanks and artillery of course. But also interesting for us how they portrayed their war heroes and how they utilised whatever they could get their hands onback then, using parts or whole from fallen enemy planes, tanks, etc.
And this one was of the amazingly shocking types of creatures or creature parts that the people of Beijing call food. Do not click to enlarge this layout if you are squeamish.


365 Pages for October
Here are my photo a day for October. I'm still loving using Templates from Set 290 and 317. 
The highlights of October was of course the baptism of my father in law, mom in law's birthday celebrations, dh going for a civil defence course, us preparing for a church BBQ for a 80 youths (!), our new house having a major electrical glitch (!), and Jared's 3D Printing adventure. October flew by!

  3. have a wonderful celebration, it seems like you have so much to be joyful about. Love all your layouts and your great creativity. just wanted to suggest that perhaps you meant to say Tidbits, instead of titbits on your red Beijing layout. I hate when I discover after printing that there is a typo. Kathy
