I've been doing a bit of cleaning out, organizing, and de-cluttering...actually, I still find myself unpacking boxes after 2 years of being in our new home. The other day I happened across a treasure trove of old projects and snapshots of my little one I had printed from my computer and then tucked away to use at a later date. I haven't been able to stop looking at them since. They flood my mind and heart with the sweetest of memories. I remember these days like they were yesterday and can remember exactly what we were doing, who was there, how she smelled, the sound of her voice and laughter, the feel of her chubby little cheeks against my face, etc. I'm so thankful for these memories and of the many more we'll make together.
This is an older project I found in a box, tucked safely away like it was the most precious treasure on earth. I quickly unwrapped it and have it hanging in my craft room now. I love attaching photos of my little one on cards...it adds so much heart to the giving and sharing.
I was recently given the opportunity to create with a kit from Scrapkit Studio which gave me the perfect opportunity to use some of the sweet, candid snapshots I had been saving. If you want to treat yourself to something really special, the kits from Scrapkit Studio are just what you need! I can't say enough about them. Each month a new kit is released, each unique and special. SO much hard work and preparation goes into each one of them as they are packaged up for use. I didn't have to use my paper trimmer once as everything came pre-cut to fit all of the chipboard pages and pieces. The kits are filled with die cut shapes, words, double-sided paper, buttons, doilies, stickers, ribbon, trinket pins, Baker's Twine, etc., and step-by-step instructions are included for each page. I adjusted them just a bit to fit my photos and such, but I loved sitting down for a few hours and having everything ready for me to complete a sweet, memorable project.
I love to see how she's grown and changed but at the same time catch glimpses of how she has stayed the same...same little button nose, full cheeks, blue, blue eyes, and a smile that melts me.
Thanks so much for your visit!
My little one and I are off for a day together tomorrow in the city. I love having dates with her, just the two us. I let her pick where we eat, what movie we'll see, and just plain spoil her rotten for the day!
