I had a difficult time picking a layout to share today. But I thought this was a fun one. This is LH's trip to see her Uncle graduate with his doctorate. A very special time and visit followed.
My challenge, not only with this page, but with all the pages is that I have to pick the photos I want to scrapbook. I can not scrap them all. Honestly, there are hundreds of photos from this summer. So for the next few weeks you are going to see A LOT of multi-photo layouts.
Here is one of my favorites thus far:
Ingredients: My Minds Eye paper, title, and flower; Maya Road chipboard words; Tim Holtz ribbon, Vintage Photo Distress Ink and trinket; Ranger Picket Fence Paint Dabber; Fiskars and Maratha Stewart border punches.
My life is still going 90 miles an hour as we prepare for the birth of another granddaughter. My son and his wife live with us and so this is a major change in our lives for a baby to be introduced. LH heads to school in two weeks so I'm working on getting all my "kissies" before she is officially a big girl. Jay leaves next Sunday for ROTC orientation and basically will be gone for college as he moves into the dorms the day orientation ends. Mom/Grandma is not great at change and this is a huge change.
Update on my husband's nephew: as you know he was infected Eastern Equine Encephalitis. At last update "Eddie has been doing good, improving a little everyday. We took our grandparents (my husband's parents) to see him on Friday. It was difficult for them, but encouraging at the same time. My dad said that Eddie turned his head slightly when he called his name this morning and he did this a few times. We still want him to wake up completely" For those praying, that is our prayer: for Eddie to wake up completely. Thank you.
Have a Crafty Day!
