Thank you for joining us on another Joy of Sets Blog Hop - with members of the Joy of Sets Facebook Group started by me over 3 years ago. Our blog hop is organised by the very talented Angie Mckenzie who keeps us all on our toes even though we are all over the world! Don't we just take technology for granted these days?  We would not have been without it during these pandemic times of most of us being in lockdown.

I decided to do a scrapbook page for this month's hop.  2020 would have seen us off to Greece for another week of bliss but sadly as the world is on stop we cannot go.  I did two pages and couldn't decide which one to show so I'm showing both!  They are both taken on Greek Islands and they are two of my favourite with Paxos just edging out in front.  Skopelos is famous for being the Mamma Mia island but luckily it hasn't become spoiled due to the success of the film.

I've used Kaisercraft papers and embellishments on both pages.  I've used a stencil to add waves to the Skopelos one.  Both of the cut outs of the Greek Islands came from a small UK based craft company Sunshine Scrapbooking- I was amazed to find them on there.

Skopelos was in 2018, it was our second time here, and this year our son came with us - I love it that at 24 he still doesn't mind coming on holiday with mum and dad!

2019 saw hubby and I return to Paxos for our third time.  It was early in May and the weather wasn't always brilliantly warm and sunny but it was still very relaxing.  We would have gone back this year but sadly as the world is on stop Greek holidays may have to wait not until next year. Luckily I still have some Ouzo!
