That was off of one of my Virginia Tech T-shirts my senior year. The layout is Scribble Scrabble patterned paper, chipboard stickers, and the diecut stripe down the side:
I had the best day yesterday with J. He was good in the food store. I was more consistent and swift with my corrections and the whole day was just better. We found a park in a neighborhood close by. I sat on a swing and he climbed in my lap and we swung (verb tense?) all afternoon. The weather was perfect, the afternoon sun was peaking from behind the trees. The air was cool. I had my cheek against J's little head, my arm holding him tight against me so he wouldn't fly off. I felt young, alive, free. I don't ever want to forget that, I'm surprised that it's already a memory. I would like to forget the sound of the swing groaning as we went back and forth, but unfortunately, that was the sound track to our afternoon. It seems to me that the swing should have been able to easily support our combined 160 pounds, but whatever.
(Apparently I'm not going in order, I missed one the first time.)
Welcome back to scrapping. What was the first project you did when you started again?
Wow, when you RAK you really stress the kindness part! Congrats on 100 and 10,000! Those are both big deals! I need to get moving to get 100 layouts this year - I'm so far behind it might be time to give it up. Question: does your husband hang out near where you scrapbook so you can chat with him or at least have that valuable "shoulder to shoulder" time while you work? I need to stay connected with my dh and still scrapbook, and that is not always easy!
I adore your work & wonder if you will ever go over to "the dark side"? (as I lovingly refer to digital) I just love the feel of paper & photos in my hand...I just can't let go...lol
