Today I am sharing my daughter's birthday at Heidi Swapp's blog! With only a few children coming to our little party, I was going to not do treat bags. When my son heard he almost had a melt down in Hobby Lobby! WHAT?! No treat bags? I could totally see where he was coming from. So I decided if I was going to make some treat bags, I would share the design with you!
Just recently I have met a new mom and as we talked about scrapbooking (somehow the conversation always goes there lol) she shared with me, like so many other moms have, how hard it can be for a newbie to start. I love that Becky Higgins Project Life is around! I shared this concept with her and she was thrilled! I also am excited to be the launching artist along with Maggie Holmes to provide FREE download sheets to make creating your pages even easier!

My sister texted me this weekend a photo of a layout I had created for her over 15 years ago to go into her high school graduation album. Let me tell you, I didn't even remember it. If it wasn't for the handwriting I would deny it was even mine! You want to see it don't you? Well, here it is below...

I am realizing these moments are fleeting. I am scrapbooking my son's story but I feel like time is going too fast for my daughter's. She turns 2 next week and I just don't have everything said that I want to say written down.

I use to have several pen pals growing up. My sisters and I had the same pen pals all through grade and high school. It's a good story so I am going to tell it...
My grandparents were engaged and Grandpa was working at his carnival booth in Southend, Essex a vacation spot. It was days away from his wedding when he met a couple and invited them to the wedding. They did things like that back then; invite complete strangers to your wedding! Ha! Well, this couple became their best friends.
