Number 2 would be a layout I made for Drew's first birthday. It is called I'm ONE! I was able to capture a great expression. That, by itself, is a great accomplishment!! He is always moving!! And very hard to get a good photo of!! But look at that cute little face!! Isn't he just adorable??
Then comes LaJolla! Besides being one of my favorite layouts, it is also one of my favorite places to visit! The beach is absolutely one of the most beautiful places God made here on earth! And of course, some of the grandchildren live nearby too, so we get to play in the waves with them. Talk about adorable children!!
This one is one I'd planned on doing for several years. so felt quite good about finally taking the photos and getting it done! I used a template from Renee Pearson for it, and really love how it turned out. I think I'll eventually make this a double page spread because I still have a lot of ornaments I'd like to get down on paper!
Some of my layouts have double meanings for me. This one of Hopie, for instance, reminds me of me when I was a little girl. Hannah took this photo of Hopie when they were playing dress up together. Hopie is quite the poser!! I remember, as a child, playing with my older sister. I didn't ever know we were playing though. She would be brushing my long hair--and I'd be waiting to PLAY. She'd get done brushing and think we already DID play!! We didn't get that misunderstanding taken care of until we were adults!! :)
Besides this being one of my favorite photos of Abby, it's also one of the first layouts I did for my first creative team! I think that is probably why I like it so much!!
Besides posting their top ten layouts, some of the scrappers have also picked a word for the year. So, being the follower I am, I too picked a word! I chose CONSISTENT to be my word. I need this word for several areas of my life besides scrapping! :)
I wish you all a Happy New Year, and may the grace of God be with you all in this new year we've just started!!
