Olives layout

I wanted to share this layout. I LOVED the bright MME patterned paper that Amber from the MME blog sent me - she is such a sweet & very talented person. I immediately found this fun picture that I wanted to scrap and put the PP to good use! Gosh, I think the PP would have gone with any photo almost - it is so pretty. (This layout is dedicated to our favorite Aunt!!)

Normal Day

Saw this on Ali Edward's blog & as I am feeling this way today as well, so I thought I would share it:
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, savour you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass by you in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky, and want, more than all the world, your return. - Mary Jean Iron

Thanking God that my little girl, who is growing up so fast, still loves to crawl in bed with me in the mornings & talk to me about her upcoming day; that she still grabs my hand & holds it while we are walking to the bus stop; and that she still waves goodbye to me after she gets seated on the bus.

3 Generations layout

Wanted to add my latest creation - one based on the latest PageMaps sketch. I somehow missed these Cosmo Cricket papers last year when they came out - and I found them on clearance this year. I grabbed every piece of the line that I could find, and since they are double-sided, I grabbed two pieces of some of them. Since the papers are very home-y (with the faux stitching), I wanted to add home-y embellishments, hence my stitching, ribbon, the little ribbon flowers with the pearl in the middle, & the felt accents. I just love looking at this layout of my mom & my daughter & me!!
