I continue to work on catching up on some scrapbooking (the usual). I guess for you that are crafty with knitting, crochet, quilting (I envy you all by the way!) it compares to working on a blanket you haven't finished and going back and reacquainting yourself with where you left off and working to get it done.
I have several albums I keep working on, but one thing I enjoy is going back and looking at some of my previous work as it often sparks ideas for new pages. When I was looking back at one of my family albums the other day I came across this birthday layout I had done for my son's 6th birthday (he's a teenager now - eek!), and I really liked certain things about it.
On this first page I love how I cut my son out of a photo on the bottom and put him right on the grass and it looks like he's going to putt the ball into the hole. (We had gone mini golfing for that birthday).
And in the 2nd page of the layout I loved the use of all of the #6 stickers out of all of my different alphabet packs at the time. You can't miss which birthday it was, right? Lol Look at my sweet young boy at the bottom, and the top photo is my little Annie (she was about 3 months old at the time). And my really short hair!
I remember that birthday being so fun for Aaron as we took a bunch of his buddies with, and all of the grandparents and aunts and uncles came too, and we had a grown up contest & young kids contest for best score. We gave away medals and prizes after the golf game. He really loved it all.
I also thought it'd be fun to share this photo I took of the bay the other day. Some of the ice had melted last week and when it re-froze it became this beautiful blue color:
can't wait until that grass is green & that bay is open
