The rest from the other day

Here are the other layouts I mentioned in my post the other day. This first one is called "Thankful". I do one of these every November where I list what I am most thankful for that year. I have hidden journaling on the pull-out tag that reads:

I am so thankful that my whole family is still together and that we have hit a more stable time in our lives. I also am thankful for the beautiful addition to our family - Christian!

It's just such a miracle that Kevin is still with us and even more so at how well he is doing.

Anyway, here's the layout:

I really love the pale blues, whites and tans on this layout. I wanted the focus to really be on the B&W photo and I love how the harlequin stamp kinda pulls your eye in.

This next one I actually did in the wee hours of this morning. It's a layout of some folks up in NYC that have befriended us through my blog about Kevin. They touched my heart in a deep way and I plan to journal privately on the red cardstock about them.

I believe this one was created using my Birds of A Feather kit from months ago.

This last one is of Moe while we were in the Dominican Republic back in September. I fell in love with these IOD papers and knew just how I wanted to use them!

I especially love the touches of coral I added and I am so glad I found that twine while digging around through my ribbons. I think it just gave the finishing touch to this layout.

I have been scrapping quite a bit lately and I think it makes me just feel better as a person. Thankfully we are settled now and I have a 'real' scraproom! Life is good, eh?
