Let’s Scrapbook…

 

tunnel

Life has been a little crazy lately and I’ve been too busy to get much scrapbooking done…but hopefully that is changing very soon.  Lately my life has consisted of work, packing and very little sleep.  BUT there is light at the end of the tunnel.  This weekend will be the END of packing/unpacking…at least for a while I hope! 

Last weekend I did something I swore I wasn’t going to do….attend my high school class reunion.  I won’t go into how many years it’s been since graduation, but I will admit that none of us had yet heard the term “boy band”!  Ha!   Considering all that’s been going on in my life this year, I wasn’t sure I was up for a class reunion but I am so glad I put on my brave girl panties, tossed aside any expectations and decided to just go.  It was so much fun and exactly what I needed…lots of laughs, lots of funny stories…and even a few old boyfriends.  Can’t beat that!  It didn’t occur to me until later however…that I did not take ONE picture while I was there.  You’d think as much as I LOVE to scrapbook, I would take more pictures…but a photographer I am NOT!  Oh well…I suppose that’s why I make “blank” scrapbooks!  :)

I’m looking forward to getting back to some heavy duty scrapbooking over the next few weeks, but for now here are a few recent additions to my Etsy shop

It takes guts…

 

Cowboy 1

It Takes Guts to be a Cowboy Scrapbook

I love the cover sticker on this scrapbook!  I know…it takes guts to be a lot of other things too!  Some days it takes guts to just participate in this crazy world of ours.

My Sweet Daughter 1

My Sweet Daughter Scrapbook

I always wanted daughters.  Always.  The plan was 2 girls…close together in age.  That was my dream since I was a little girl.  Then I gave birth to my first child and it was a boy.  Since we didn’t find out the sex during the pregnancy, I was a little scared that I would be disappointed if it wasn’t a girl.  Wow…was I mistaken.  It took less than a second for me to fall madly, head over heels in love with this little guy and I didn’t care that my dream of “two girls” was shattered.  But then…less than 2 years later a magical thing happened and I had TWO baby girls…39 minutes apart!  So, I got what I always wanted AND an amazing bonus!

21st Birthday 1

Happy 21st Birthday Scrapbook

Speaking of those baby girls.  They turned 21 a couple of weeks ago.  I still can hardly believe that many years have passed.  Those childhood days tug at my heartstrings but I love the sweet, strong young women they’ve become.

Oh, and I added the “finally” to this page (on the right) because of my girls.  They didn’t think they were EVER going to turn 21!
