Hi friends. Hope all is going well for you this week. I decided this past weekend that I was going to finish scrapbooking the day that Angelina was born. Man...when I set my mind to something! I really didn't have that much more to put together but it is just getting the layouts together that take so much time ya know? I had a stash of baby paper for quite some time now so all of this patterned paper is pretty old and I am not sure exactly where I got it...my guess would be Hobby Lobby though. I got the page layout idea from this month's Scrapbooks Etc. I just love that magazine! They have a few pages towards the back all of sketches. When I started this layout I picked out two pieces of patterned paper that I wanted to use together and the foundation is a very pale pink cardstock. I cut the scalloped pattern in the word paper using a very old Creative Memories cutting tool, in fact I am not really sure they sell it any more! The title Heaven Sent and other white title words are actually velvet stickers by Making Memories. I just love the font!
I will be posting a few more pages baby pages over the next few days so stay tuned!
In other Toni news...Wednesday evenings are very exciting for me! A family friend of ours helps to head up the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) classes at the church and he called and asked me if I would be interested in being a sponsor for a young gal that is taking classes to become Catholic. I am very honored that he asked me, just the fact that he thought of me for this opportunity makes me feel so good. I have gone to 2 classes now and attended mass with her on Sunday. She is a really neat gal and I think will probably be a friend for years to come. Well, I better head off to bed, Haley has to be at school at 7AM for a test! Yikes that is so early for Mama! The kid loves to get to school early to socialize!
Thanks for peekin' in...hope everyone is well at your place! Hugs ~ Toni
