I decided to do a layout, documenting the changes that have taken place over the past 6 years, when we had our first little girl. And believe me, there are a lot of changes that take place from being a brand new mom, to making it to a mom of 3 kids!! But I think the biggest changes are definitely how fast our children grow. The two photos I used on my layout, show our daughter at the age of 4 months in May of 2006 and the other is of her at age 6 on Easter Sunday this year. WOW...big difference! :)
I took inspiration from an older Sketchy Thursdays sketch for this page...I have still been missing ST reveals every Thursday, since the Blog closed down!! :) So I decided I needed a little "fix"!!
My journaling is in the mini envelope. I included a little bit more journaling than usual, on this one, so I thought the envelope would be perfect for a little folded sheet of notebook paper. The journaling reads: It is amazing to see how much things have changed over the past 6 years. You were only 4 months old for my first Mother's Day and I was still kind of clueless to all of this "mother stuff". Now you've grown into a beautiful little girl and being your mom is a privilege.
