80's music

I was a teenager in the 80's and I really love the music from that time. There's a challenge over at Scrap that song's blog to use a song from the 1980's as inspiration.
On the weekend I started to scrap layouts from our day at the Kennedy Space Centre. I remember a song I used to like by Def Leppard called "Rocket" so I used that as the title for this layout. It's unusual to get a family shot on a vacation. It's often part of a set shot by someone trying to sell you that photo, as the photo in this one is.

Here's my layout.

Perth has been having thunderstorms this week. We missed out on power outages and damage on Monday night but were not so lucky last night.  We were without power from 9:30pm til 7:30am this morning. Also, one of our fences blew down.  Here's a pic.

It is leaning against our house right where my bedroom is. I heard lots of loud noise during the night and kept looking out windows to try to see what was going on, too wild to go outdoors. Now I know what happened.


  1. Thanks for joining in at Scrap That Song Dale. I agree lots of fabulous songs from that era. Your layout looks great. Hope you are safe and sound with the storms over there


  2. 'So glad that you are ok, Dale! Stay safe!!

    This is such a great idea for a layout! Nice job!
