This week we look at how families have changed in terms of their holidays and days out have changed from one generation to the next.
We’d love to hear your experiences. Send us your pages by next Wednesday 6th October to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Janine was surprised by the fact that her childhood holidays and her own children's holidays are not that different! Mostly it is about spending time with family, as to go anywhere with 5 children costs a fortune, so it is always simple holidays such as camping trips when we do go on vacation. Janine's childhood was spent on a farm, and that made it difficult for the family to go away as animals always needed to be cared for, so most holidays were spent at home or she got to stay with her Grandparents.
Louise W has fond memories of a childhood where she was fortunate enough to go away for a couple of weeks every Christmas. They were spent at motor camps around the North Island, mostly in Tauranga where they spent countless hours doing the normal stuff - fishing, swimming and playing through the long, hot summers.
The Echo Park "For the Record" range was perfect for this 70's photo, with the colours and soft patterns echoing (excuse the pun) a bygone era. The blossom pattern created with texture paste and a Crafter's Workshop adds to the softness and slightly retro feel to the page.
Journalling reads: Annual Christmas Holidays spent at a motor camp in Tauranga. Fishing off the wharf and swimming at the Mount. Summers of sun, fun and family.
