Just Me and First Photo Shoot.

During some recent scrappin' time I made these two layouts. This first one is an old picture of me. I thought for a long time about a title for this page, but being as young as I was I have zero memory of it. All I know is that I was going to the park. So my friend suggested "just me" and I like it. I think it's a sweet picture and really wanted to scrap it for awhile. I used Cherry Hill LOP from October Afternoon. I think the colors in these papers are stunning. You'll notice my beautiful wonderful lovely new toy. The Topnote die. Love. Thanks to my sister for the great gift.


This second DPS is of my oldest son's first photo shoot. These photos were taken over 12 years ago and I've been struggling a bit with doing my oldest two children's baby albums. I think I've been trying to make it look like it was done 12 years ago. lol. I've decided that not every page has to have a story. Some defiantly will and others like this will just tell their own story. These papers are sasafras. They look like a baby blanket that belonged to my DH. Super cute and bright.




I hope that you all are having a wonderful New Year. All the best in 2010!

Both layouts are great--I love the little birds on your memory page, and the circle and animal theme going in the second layout. Pretty colors! Happy new year to you!

Cute layouts! That's a very sweet picture of you as a child ... you did a great job picking the right paper/embellies!

I think that is the PERFECT title for the first page.

I sound like a broken record, but you are ridiculously talented.

After hand surgery 6 weeks ago (still healing) & surgery on the other hand coming up the middle of Feb., I'm not getting any of my stamping or scrapbooking done!
But I just read NewEveryAM's blog & want to say that you really humbled me... putting me right after God & Jesus! After not having a great relationship w/my mom, I am so blessed to have one with my daughter. When she was very young, I was getting so frustrated at my attempts to have a good realationship w/my mom (who was a church-goer, but not a true believer). My husband (very wisely) said, "You can only do so much to improve your relationship w/your mom. But you now have a daughter that you can start fostering a relationship with so that when she is an adult you can have that kind of relationship that you so desire." It was the best advice he could ever have given me! Did we have "our times" when she was growing up? Of course! But I kept in the back of my mind what he had said. And God can wipe from memory some of the difficult times too (we had some "issues" her senior year of high school that she says she doesn't remember.... I see those as getting me ready to cut the apron strings for her to go away to college.)
I know we have a unique relationship & I certainly thank God for it!
