My brother finishes up his visit to Sydney, Australia to see his daughter and two grandkids tomorrow.    This is the youngest with him, he hadn't seen him since two weeks after he was born in October 2019.   Then Covid hit and it was just last month that he was able to travel back there and spend just over 5 weeks there with everyone.

I'll be entering this layout in two challenges.   First I used Sketch #513 at  "SKETCHES IN THYME".  This was great because I always forget about all my 6x6 pads of paper and I got one pad out to use on this layout.

Next I'll enter the layout at  "LASTING MEMORIES" for their latest shape challenge - Hearts.    I have 6 miscellaneous hearts scattered around my layout as embellishments.
