Today I'm thinking garden party! If only I could attend one for real. Sigh. We are still under a blanket of snow and they're predicting a few more inches before this day is done. But that doesn't mean we can't have green and growing things in our hearts and minds, right?? So I'm linking with Creative Country Mom's Tuesday Garden Party.
I've been trying to get back to more scrapbooking, as I keep getting side tracked by other fun projects. Not that it's a bad thing, but I still have a lot of catching up to do in my scrapbook world, so getting focused there again.
The other day I was looking through some of my things and remembered this layout I had done with my daughter and my Dad and step Mom doing some gardening together. I remember that Annie had been studying gardening in school and was becoming obsessed. My Dad was recently retired and had put together some nice raised beds and said that Annie should come over and help him do some planting.
I love the shots I got on this page with Annie digging the dirt. My Dad handing her some seeds to plant - so cute. He was explaining things to her as they went and in the bottom round photo he was having her smell some fresh mint he already had coming up.
A lot of these shots were in the front of their house where my daughter was also helping my step Mom with her flowers. They all had such fun together that day!
I scrapbook a lot of the usual things in my albums: holidays, family events, trips etc. But some of my favorite layouts are the ones where it was just a moment captured that didn't have anything to do with something bigger. Just a memory of a perfect day forever preserved in photos in a special book.
