Family Forever

I received this pp and embellishments from a SMS (same material swap) with some friends. As soon as I seen the title that was sent with it, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to scrap. My parents always wanted us to come to deer camp on Thanksgiving with them but with small kids we didn't have a lot of room to stay and Shane always seemed to be on call during Thanksgiving and there was not internet access at deer camp. In 2009 we finally made plans to go and it all worked out. We rented a small pop up camper and stayed almost a full week at deer camp. My Dad was so happy that we brought the boys down. Little did I know that shortly after this trip my Dad would get very sick with cancer. This is the only picture we have of everyone together, my Mom & Dad, bother Eric and his wife Alyana, Shane and I, and of course the kids Andrew, Leo, and Jack. I will cherish our deer camp trip and this picture forever!

Make a Wish

March Guest Design Team Member Challenge fromSketch Thursdays

In addition to the sketch you had to use the following:
Pink & Green or Red & Turquoise
A list about something/someone you love

With 3 boys I don't often have the opportunity to use pink on a layout, but I love it when I do.
I chose the pink & green combination, there are little hearts on the pattern paper, and heart embellishments, and I journaled about some of the things we love about Jack.

The Paper Studio Chipboard

Journaling: Jack, We love your smile, big blue eyes, blonde hair, and sense of adventure. Being the youngest of three boys you have no fear! We are so blessed to have you! Happy Birthday!

Leo's Preschool picture. I really had no use for all of these little pictures so I thought I'd use 3 of them for this layout. I love the way it turned out!

My lighting for this picture is horrible. I'm so sorry.
