I want to remember..

So I've been needing to get some of these old photos done, it's easy to flick past them especially when you have some new photos to do that seem interesting and fresh. Some of these photos hold the most simple special memories though, things that in years to come will warm my heart and transport me back to that spot. So I'm trying to work through them and trying not to forget why I took that photo in the first place. I want to remember.

When these little girls played all day with lego....

I want to remember when my little one was this tiny and peaceful and sweet. Now she is more naughty than sweet, no longer tiny and there is not even a smidge of peacefulness. She is full of love though that one.

I made this layout for the Calendar girls challenge to make an eclectic mix of flowers on a layout, then I figured I would totally ruin it by trying to squeeze it into an album, so I popped it into this shadow box to go in Phia's room. Her walls are rose pink so it should look cute.

A tiny book to share..

So I joined an online group this year to keep me more motivated with my "actual" scrapbooking and to keep me from straying down these tangents that I am so fond of. It's called the Calendar girls (because it's a monthly thing, it is not the strip club that all my l0cals are thinking of, I repeat not the strip club). The idea is that you do a couple of layouts, sketch challenge and lift challenge, a non layout item and a DW challenge.

So last month the non layout item was a small book regarding your five goals for the year, man trying to narrow it down to five was tough, I could have gone on and on, I know none of you believe that because I'm so not a talker. ha! So yeah it was hard for me!

Anyways thought I would share it, I liked the way it turned out. Oh and the last page is my word for the year.

It's Superbowl Monday......

Woo Hoo!
J and I are big superbowl fans and we have a tradition of having the day off work and just hanging out. So he's off work today and we're having a big family day.
It's a great way to spend a Monday.
I may even get some crafting done, thank goodness it's not crazy hot like yesterday, that was a little too hot for me.

I have some things to share but I haven't got the photos done yet!
Have a fab day
