Guess Who's Back?

Back Again??!?

Computer was released from the ICU and is back home with me! I've been busy this week re-decorating my son's room - while he's been sick so it's been slow going!

I wanted to share this paper bag album that I made for a friend; she wanted blues and browns and didn't want it to be too girly so I kept the ribbons and stuff to a minimum. I wasn't sure about the pictures she would be adding so I kept the pages/photo mats fairly simple so it would be easy for her to just add her photos. There are many reasons why scrapbooking is not one of my most favorite things to do: but the big one is that I hate to cover up that yummy, pretty, fabulous patterned paper. My grandpa's name was Jack so I knew I would love doing it from the get-go. I petitioned for that name as a contender when I was pregnant but hubby didn't love it as much as I did. It's okay though, because I love my son's name!!

This project is one of my most favorite things I've ever done. It was super hard for me to give it up - do you ever have that happen to you? I have to fight it very hard because 1) I can't keep everything and 2) sharing is so much better. I love knowing that people smile and feel good inside when they receive something that I made just for them!

Have a wonderful Easter girls!! We were planning on going to the sunrise service at the canyon - it's so lovely to see. Last year they cancelled it because it was so cold and icy. No word yet on this year, but they are predicting a "winter mix" that morning. My little man has the flu so we'll be watching church on tv this year. Hopefully next year!

Wow! Great album. I know what you mean about giving your creations away, but it's such a great feeling when someone else loves it as much as you do!
